Bumrah captioned the photo, saying, “Since I became a father myself, I realized what a father’s emotion is and what I had missed in my life.”
Jasprit Bumrah, a prominent Indian pacer, has made a name for himself as one of the best bowlers in the world of cricket as well as in the Indian team. The 30-year-old was sidelined by injuries for several months prior to his 2023 ODI World Cup comeback.
The famous pacer just wrote a heartfelt letter to his late father. Bumrah discussed the influence his father had on their life and expressed his wish for his continued presence on Instagram.
“Your absence was always felt in our lives, and now that I am a father myself, I have realized the emotions of a father and the things I had been missing.” “I wish you were with us, dad, as we remember you with happy memories,” Bumrah wrote on Instagram.
Bumrah intends to play in the England series again.
The last time Jasprit Bumrah played for India was during their two-match Test series against South Africa. The star pacer will be back for the Indian side in the next five-game Test series against England after taking a break for the Afghanistan T20I series.
Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, will play England in five Test matches. The first Test is expected to start in Hyderabad on January 25. The team captained by Rohit Sharma will want to win against England and pick up some much-needed points in the WTC points table after drawing the series against South Africa.
The India team for the first two Test matches against England was recently released by the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India). Notable players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and even Bumrah will be on the team as they prepare to play England.
