India speedster Jasprit Bumrah has impressed one and all with his stellar performances in the recently held Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Bumrah finished the four-match series as the joint-highest wicket-taker with 21 scalps alongside Nathan Lyon.

Such was Bumrah’s impact in the series that Australia cricket fans are now imitating his unconventional bowling action. Although Bumrah’s action is hard to copy, a young Aussie fan seems to have perfected it and also has the India pacer's stamp of approval on it.

In a video surfaced on Twitter, an Australian kid could be seen imitating Bumrah's hop, skip and jump bowling action.

The user who shared the video also tagged Bumrah in the tweet and captioned it as: "The only problem from your great series win may be the next generation of Aussie cricketers you have inspired."

Bumrah was quick to respond on the tweet, stating: "The kid is so cute. Give him my best wishes."

Having made his Test debut earlier last year in South Africa, Bumrah has bagged 48 Test wickets in his kitty. The right-armer played a key role in India’s first-ever Test series triumph down under. He was named Man-of-the-Match for his nine-wicket haul in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
