And the foreign bowlers have identified a new technique to train like Bumrah and bowl-like Bumrah. Many international bowlers were seen taking the Mumbai local and stood in awkward and dangerous positions to train their hand to deliver the ball like Bumrah.

We all know how tough it is to manage your hands inside the Mumbai local. Sometimes your hand is inside the train and you are outside of it, sometimes your hand is outside the train while the whole body is inside.

These awkward angles are perfect to train like Bumrah. It has become a nightmare for batsmen to read the angle of the ball delivered by Bumrah and the coming IPL will give us many more Bumrahs. In fact, the Mumbai IPL team is on the lookout for players who are frequent travelers in the Mumbai local, as they can become the backup for Bumrah in the coming years. Many of the travelers have already become the net bowlers for MI.
