Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who rose to fame in a short period, and his mother Daljit Bumrah reminisced about their struggling days in a clip tweeted by Mumbai Indians which was captioned "'Talent can come from anywhere and reach the pinnacle of success.' Watch the transformational journey of @Jaspritbumrah93 from a rookie to a world-beater,"

"Talent can come from anywhere and reach the pinnacle of success. I would like to share with you the transformational journey of a young boy who was discovered by Mumbai Indians from a small time of India," Nita Ambani said, before the clip started showing Jasprit Bumrah's inspirational journey.



"When he was five-year-old, I lost my husband," said Bumrah’s mother Daljit Bumrah.

The pacer joined in stating: "After that we couldn't afford anything. I had one pair of shoes. I used to have one pair of T-shirts. I used to wash them every day and use it again and again.

"So, as a child you know you hear stories that sometimes these things happen that some people come and watch you and you get picked up like this. But it actually happened," Bumrah added.

Bumrah’s mother stated she was thrilled to witness her son play an IPL match for the first time on Television.

"The first time when I saw him on that IPL match on TV, I couldn't stop crying. He has seen me struggle financially and physically also," Daljit said.

Bumrah said, "All these tough times make you strong because you've seen tougher days before."

Bumrah is in London at the moment to receive treatment for his stress fracture in his lower back. "No place like London," Bumrah tweeted.


Jasprit Bumrah was in outstanding form in the recently concluded West Indies tour, where he scalped 13 wickets in two Test games, which includes a hat-trick.
