Happy Birthday Jasprit Bumrah: Watch wife Sanjana Ganesan’s romantic message on the pacer’s special day
Team India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is celebrating his 29th birthday on Tuesday (December 6). Bumrah is celebrating his birthday with another Indian teammate – Ravindra Jadeja – who also turns 34 today.
While the fast bowler has been out of international cricket for the past few months due to a back injury, wife Sanjana Ganesan is traveling to Australia to cover the T20 World Cup 2022 for the host broadcasters last month. Sanjana finally reunited with Bumrah a few weeks before he returned from Australia.
Sanjana, who is a well-known sports presenter, sent a romantic wish to her husband on her Instagram account on Tuesday. “To my today and all my tomorrows, happy birthday. I love you more than words,” wrote Sanjana, posting a picture of herself with Bumrah, along with a ‘double heart’ emoji.
Bumrah made his ODI and T20I debuts for India in 2016 and quickly became the bowling leader for the team before making his Test debut in South Africa in 2018.
Bumrah is the second fastest Indian to take 100 wickets in ODI cricket. He is just one match behind Mohammed Shami, who took 100 wickets in 56 matches.
Bumrah has taken 128 wickets in 30 Tests at an impressive average of 21.99, while in 72 matches he has taken 121 ODI wickets at an average of 24.3. In 60 T20I matches, the Mumbai Indians pacer has taken 70 wickets at an average of 20.22 and an economy rate of 6.62.
In his IPL career, Bumrah has taken 145 wickets in 120 matches in the T20 league at an average of 23.3 with best of 5/10. Bumrah tied the knot with sports presenter Sanjana Ganesan in a private ceremony in Goa in March last year, starting their ‘new journey together’.
