Not with his fluent batting abilities however Yuvraj made certain Bumrah felt the warmth throughout a ‘rapid fire’ spherical of their Instagram stay session.
Jasprit Bumrah was given simply 5 seconds to reply every query however Yuvraj put him in a spot a lot in order that the India pacer struggled to reply them. Yuvraj needed to push Bumrah to get the solutions for some ‘tricky’ questions, as acknowledged by the pacer himself.
Virat or Zlatan?
“Virat Kohli or Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will be your fitness idol?” Yuvraj Singh requested.
“Zlatan. Not my fitness idol but he is my idol in general,” Bumrah answered.
Kohli or Tendulkar?
“Who do you think is the best batsman? Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar,” Yuvraj Singh requested.
Unlike the earlier query, Bumrah didn’t come up with a spontaneous reply. In reality, he refused to offer one after which Yuvraj introduced again the identical query on the finish of the ‘rapid fire’ spherical.
“Yuvi pa, look it’s been only 4 years I have been playing international cricket. I am giving you a long answer. I am not experienced enough to judge them. Virat Tendulkar or Sachin Kohli. I am in no position because they have played a lot more cricket than me,” Bumrah mentioned.
“I am not asking for your autobiography here. You were told the rules of the round clearly. You needed to answer each question in less than 5 seconds. I want a clear answer. Between them, who is your favourite,” Yuvraj cornered Bumrah.
“This is like asking me to choose between you and Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni). Everybody is the same for me. I have equal respect for all of you” Bumrah mentioned.
“Moving forward, next question,” Bumrah tried to evade the query.
When Yuvraj introduced again the query and pushed him, Bumrah mentioned: “Paaji (Tendulkar) has lots of fans across the world. Let me pick paaji.”
Yuvraj Singh or MS Dhoni
Yuvraj moved on to the following one. However, it wasn’t any much less tricker.
“Yuvraj Singh or MS Dhoni. Who is your favourite middle-order batsmen?”
“Yuvi pa, I have grown up seeing you and Mahi bhai (Dhoni) winning matches together for India. Why are you asking me such questions?” Bumrah mentioned.
“See, all the players who have mentioned here are my favourites. I can’t choose between them. Growing up, I was a fan of both of you.
“Do you remember the Cuttack ODI where you registered your highest one-day score? The entire dressing room was elated that day because, for me, I grew up feeling happy whenever you both stitched a partnership together. It’s a genuine answer I can’t pick one,” Bumrah mentioned.
Who speaks higher English?
Yuvraj Singh moved on to the following one, asking Bumrah who amongst Mohammed Shami and Axar Patel speaks higher English.
“It’s a very tough fight. But I would say, maybe Axar is slightly better,” Bumrah mentioned.
Ashwin or Harbhajan?
“Who do you think is a better off-spinner? R Ashwin or Harbhajan Singh,” Yuvraj requested.
“Why so many controversial questions for me? I have played with Ash (Ashwin). But I have grown up seeing Harbhajan Singh. So Bhajju pa, it is,” Bumrah mentioned.
