Jasprit Bumrah’s unconventional bowling action is an enigma in itself. While his unorthodox action is difficult to imitate, Rajasthan Royals Shreays Gopal claims to imitate Bumrah’s action better than himself. In a video posted by his IPL Rajasthan Royals franchise, Gopal can be seen mimicking the bowling actions of Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh and Jasprit Bumrah and, on his behalf, doing an excellent job at all three, especially at Bumrah. Boasting how well he copied the action of the rapid diseases of the Mumbai Indians, Shreyas Gopal said that even Bumrah told him that he imitated her better than he did.

“I showed it to Bumrah himself … And he said I imitated him better than himself,” says Shreyas Gopal in the video posted by Rajasthan Royals.

Shreyas Gopal has appeared in the game only for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2021 so far, where he has given 40 runs and failed to raise any chicks. Gopal played 14 matches for RR last year and took 10 counters.

Rajasthan Royals, despite decent performances, fought for victories this season, managing only one of three matches.


Rajasthan Royals lost to Punjab Kings by four runs in the opening match, but came back strong to beat the Delhi Capitals three-counter standings last year. After losing 45 races to Chennai Super Kings in the previous game, they are currently second in the points table, just two points below the belt.

Rajasthan Royals will face Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday in second place in their next match, which is the only undefeated team in the tournament so far.
