Srinagar: India pace ace Jasprit Bumrah has made a revelation that he was so close to move to Canada and try playing for Canada team before playing for India.

“Every boy dreams of making it big and tries to be a cricketer. You go to any street and there will be five players who want to play for India, so you need to have a backup plan. My relative lives there (Canada) so we thought that I would finish my education here and then move,” Bumrah said in an interview with Jio Cinema.

The 30-year-old then stated that had he moved to Canada, he definitely would’ve tried to play for the Canadian national team as he wouldn’t have wanted to see his talent get wasted.

“At first we had decided to travel as a family, but my mum had become a school principal, so she didn’t want to go because it is a different place to be in, a different culture. So I am very happy and very lucky that things worked out for me, otherwise I would’ve tried to play for the Canadian team and do something there,” Bumrah added.

Things worked out perfectly for Bumrah as he became the face of the Indian bowling attack as well as for his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians.

Jasprit Bumrah has 382 wickets in 187 international matches for the Blues and 150 in 124 matches for MI in his IPL career.
