Jasprit Bumrah shares his backup plan in life

Talking about the same, Jasprit Bumrah revealed that every boy wants to play cricket and make it big. However, there is a lot of competition so one needs to have a backup plan. He added that his relatives lived in Canada, so he thought of moving there with his family after completing his education, but his mother was reluctant to do so. In Jasprit's words:

"We have had these conversations before. Every boy wants to make it big and play cricket. Every street has 25 players who want to play for India. You have to have a backup plan. Our relative lives there. I thought I would finish my education, and...my uncle lives there. First, we thought we would go as a family, then my mum did not want to go there as it's a different culture."


Speaking along the same lines, Jasprit Bumrah shared that he feels very happy and very lucky that things worked out for him. He also mentioned that he would have tried to play for the Canadian cricket team and earn his living by doing other jobs also. The cricketer added:

"I am very happy and very lucky that things worked out, Otherwise I don't know I would have tried to play for the Canadian team and do something there as well. Glad it worked out here. I am playing for the Indian team and Mumbai Indians."
