Jasprit Bumrah: Biography, Records, Achievements and career Statistics 

In this article, we will dig deeper into Jasprit Bumrah and his life, achievements along with career statistics and personal life information.

A prominent Indian cricket player and one of the most fierce bowlers in the world, Jasprit Bumrah, who plays cricket for Gujarat on the domestic cricket circuit and for the national team of India, is anticipated to have a staggering net worth of $7 million (INR 55 crore) as of January 2024, according to the financial reports. Bumrah, renowned as one of the most deadly bowlers on a global level, also earns an enormous fortune through the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournaments and numerous brand endorsement deals. 

Jasprit Bumrah has witnessed his share of struggles right from his childhood. At the age of five, Bumrah lost his father, leaving his mother, who served as a school teacher, to raise him in Ahmedabad. Bumrah confirmed his passion for cricket at a younger age, specifically the skill of reverse-swinging Yorkers, which was practiced by iconic bowlers like Wasim and Waqar. Keenly interested in becoming an undefeatable bowler, Bumrah used to observe Wasim and Waqar bowl intently. Over some time, Bumrah adapted to his own unique, unorthodox bowling approach that later made his bowling attack brutally undefeatable on the sphere. Although Bumrah has been playing phenomenally well, his overall dominance in the game transformed at the 2023 ODI World Cup. Bumrah came through as the fourth-highest wicket-taker with 20 wickets in just 11 matches, with a phenomenal average of 18.65 and an astounding bowling rate of 4.06. Bumrah’s recent magnificent performance against England in Vizag earned him the prestigious Man of the Match award for his stellar spell of 6/45 in the first inning.
