Team India’s win in the first ever test series in Australia brought us great pride and joy. Though we must admit the series wasn’t devoid of saucy trolls and controversial moments. Even so, team India (especially Rishab Pant) certainly gained profound popularity in the hearts of the Aussie populace. More recently, it is the ace bowler, Jasprit Bumrah who has bewitched a young Aussie fan.
A now viral video shows a kid playing cricket while trying to emulate Bumrah’s distinct bowling style. Take a look at this precious clip posted by a Twitter user-

Bumrah, who was tagged on the post, retweeted the video. Clearly floored by the adorable clip, he promptly tweeted back-
The kid is so cute . Give him my best wishes 😊.

In fact, even ICC retweeted the video sharing-
The Australia v India series in 2034 is going to be 🔥🔥🔥! https://t.co/JiNBA3UQWT

Twitterati shared their happiness along with their own childhood memories of being enamored by yesteryear Aussie cricketers.
For a generation that grew up watching McGrath, Lee, Johnson and imitating their bowling action to Aussie kid copying an Indian fast bowlers action I think there's no bigger success for Indian cricket team than this. Feeling amused and overwhelmed as an Indian cricket lover.

For the uninitiated, this Test series saw Bumrah finish as the joint-highest wicket-taker together with Aussie Nathan Lyon with 21 wickets each!
