Jasprit Bumrah, who bowls one of the fiery and toe-crushing yorkers, celebrates his 29th birthday today i.e. December 6, 2022.
The Gujarat-born pacer rose to prominence due to his exceptional skill of bowling inch-perfect yorkers for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Bumrah was a reliable player on the domestic circuit for years, thanks to his reverse-swinging yorkers, slower balls, and quick arm action. All whilst, his stock has been enhanced further by sufficient force in the IPL.
Bumrah made a name for himself by being unique. A short run-up is accompanied by a zippy bowling action with his arms as restrictive as bones, where everything seems to go flawed until it doesn’t. Remarkably, his dependability began to stand out amid the chaos of the IPL. Bumrah thrived under the tutelage of a death-bowling expert like Lasith Malinga.
Jasprit Bumrah garnered his first national call-up during the Australia tour in 2016 when he was given the opportunity to replace the injured Mohammad Shami in an ODI. Boom-Boom made his T20I breakthrough on the same tour just a few days later. Besides that, Bumrah had to wait two years for his Test debut, which he made against South Africa in 2018.
Owing to his exceptional bowling, Bumrah is unbelievably popular in the country and also one of the most sought-after cricketers. Let’s take a look at Bumrah’s endorsements, net worth, and charitable contributions:
Bumrah’s net worth is estimated to be INR 64 crore in 2022. The match fee, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) contract, the IPL contract, and brand endorsements are the main sources of income for the right-handed pacer.
The Indian bowler owns several supercars, including a Mercedes-Maybach S560, a Nissan GT-R, a Range Rover Velar, and a Toyota Innova Crysta.
Over the years, Bumrah has joined forces with multiple brands – ASICS, Dream11, Acefour Accessories, Thums Up, Uppercase, BharatPe, FanCraze, Seagram’s Royal Stag, boAt, Ebco, Zaggle, Unix, and Performax Activewear.
For many years, Jasprit Bumrah has donated to those in need and sponsored the education of underprivileged children.
