Jasprit Bumrah, the man with the golden arm, has a straight-out-of-a-movie kind of a story. In 2013, he joined Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League when he was a teenager and just after 3 years, he earned the cap for India's ODI team, thanks to his impressive bowling figures and an unusual bowing action.
 
Bumrah is the no. 1 bowler in the ICC rankings in the ODI format. The right-arm fast-medium bowler emerged as one of the most trusted death-over bowlers for his point-precision bowling skills.
 
The master of yorkers has delivered with both white and red ball and has five-wicket hauls in South Africa, England and Australia, ending India's years-long yearning for a death-overs' specialist. In April 2019, he was named in India's squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
