New Delhi, July 8

India pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah on Monday said he has been “living a dream” for the past few days as he expressed gratitude for the stupendous reception that he and the rest of his teammates got for winning the T20 World Cup in the Caribbean.

The 30-year-old, who picked up 15 wickets in the mega-event that concluded on June 29 in Barbados, was a key figure in India’s second overall and first in 17 years’ world trophy in the shortest format. He was adjudged Player of the Tournament for his performance.

‘I am so thankful for the last few days. I’ve been living a dream and it has filled me with happiness and gratitude,’ Bumrah posted on X, along with a video of him enjoying the rapturous homecoming that included a breakfast meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a victory parade attended by lakhs of fans in Mumbai.

The 42-second clip featured the audio of Virat Kohli’s speech during the felicitation function after the parade last Thursday where the champion batter had lauded Bumrah’s contribution.

The fast bowler had combined with all-rounder Hardik Pandya to turn it around wonderfully for India in the final.

The two were brought in for their second spell in the match at a time when South Africa needed 30 off 30 balls. They wreaked havoc to ensure that the Proteas eventually fell short by seven runs.

Kohli had called Bumrah a “once in a generation” player during the speech at the Wankhede Stadium, prompting the assembled crowd to chant the bowler’s name in appreciation       

“What I would like everyone to do is to applaud a guy who brought us back into games again, and again, and again. It was phenomenal. He is a once in a generation bowler. I am so glad he plays for us,” Kohli, who retired from T20 Internationals at the end of the World Cup, had said.

Bumrah was welcomed with flower petals after arriving at his Ahmedabad home recently.
