Bumrah wins hearts with his gesture towards Quinton de Kock


Hyderabad: After Quinton de Kock missed Ravindra Jadeja catch, Bumrah rather than getting angry at de Kock for his costly mistake, chose to go up to the wicketkeeper and pat him on the back. He decided to forgive de Kock and told him it’s alright.

The moment was captured on camera and lauded by the commentators and fans on social media.

Mumbai Indians ultimately defended 149 in 20 overs to lift their fourth IPL title in Hyderabad. Riding on Shane Watson’s 80, Chennai were cruising till the final over but made a mess of it in the end as Watson got run out off the fourth delivery.

That was actually not the only occasion when Bumrah gave an account of his maturity. In the 17th over of the match, Rahul Chahar at deep square-leg dropped Shane Watson off Bumrah’s bowling. But there was no sign of anger from Bumrah. He just smiled and walked back to his mark. If Chahar had taken the catch then the match might not have gone so close. Bumrah and millions of MI fans however, would like to believe that ‘all’s well that ends well.’
