Bumrah, who was part of the World Cup team, said – For the last few days, it feels like I am living in a dream

New Delhi. In a bid to express gratitude for the grand welcome the Indian players received at home after winning the T20 World Cup, bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah said that he has been living in a dream for the last few days. The 30-year-old fast bowler took 15 wickets in the tournament jointly hosted by the US and West Indies. Bumrah played a key role in India’s 17-year-old title win in the T20 World Cup. He was adjudged the best player of the tournament.

“I have been very grateful for the last few days. I am living in a dream and it has filled me with joy and gratitude,” Bumrah posted on Instagram. The fast bowler also posted a video with it which includes excerpts from breakfast with Prime Minister Narendra Modi after returning home and the victory parade with lakhs of fans in Mumbai. The 42-second clip also includes audio of Virat Kohli’s speech during the felicitation ceremony after the parade on Thursday in which he is praising Bumrah’s contribution. Bumrah, along with Hardik Pandya, led India to a great comeback in the final against South Africa.

At one point South Africa needed 30 runs from 30 balls but these two together shook their batting and India managed to win by seven runs. During the felicitation ceremony at Wankhede Stadium, Kohli had said that a player like Bumrah is born once in many generations. After this, Bumrah’s name started echoing in the stadium.

Kohli, who retired from T20 international cricket after the World Cup, had said, “I want everyone to praise the player who has always brought us back again and again. It was an amazing performance. A bowler like him is born once in many generations. I am happy that he plays for us.” Bumrah was recently welcomed with flowers when he reached his home in Ahmedabad.
