Krunal Pandya compares Bumrah’s New Look to Football Legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic!


Mumbai Indians fast bowler Bumrah has opted to get a new look ahead of the knockout stages of the IPL 2020. Bumrah revealed his ‘New Look’ in a video on Instagram where he is quite active with regular updates.

At this stage, Bumrah covered the camera with his hand before showing his new look, where he is seen wearing a goatee & a moustache. The pacer indicated his happiness with his new look with a thumbs up & a bright wide smile. Krunal Pandya compared Bumrah’s new look to that of Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic who the fast bowler holds in high regards.  “Wow zlatan with his new look for the knockouts @jaspritb1,” his comment read.

Bumrah had used a quote out of Ibrahimovic’s book to caption a picture shared on his Instagram handle. “I always want to become better. If never being satisfied is a problem, then I have it.” Zlatan Ibrahimovic,” he wrote in the caption, along with a lion emoji.

Ibrahimovic is representing Serie A Club AC Milan at the age of 39. The attacker has continued to prove that age is just a number on various occasions. The most recent example has been his excellent bicycle kick in Milan’s 2-1 win over Udinese in the Italian league. Bumrah has himself been very impressive in the IPL 2020 fetching wickets at regular intervals. The 26 year old is currently second highest wicket-taker in the ongoing IPL fetching 23 wickets in 13 matches. The dismissals have been recorded at a strike rate of 13.56 and economy rate of 6.96.

Bumrah will have an opportunity to surpass South African Fast bowler Kasigo Rabada who is leading the wicket taker’s list on Thursday. Mumbai Indians will face Delhi capitals in first qualifier of the IPL 2020 with a fine performance boosting the Indian pacer’s chances of surpassing Rabada’s tally of 25 wickets.
