Meet cricket’s man of the moment who has bowled his way into our hearts.

ELLE: Hi jasprit! tell us something about you that not many people know.

Jasprit Bumrah: I’m mischievous and i like to play pranks on my friends. there are things people don’t think I’d do, but let’s just say that I surprise them!

ELLE: What does the word “home” mean to you?

JB: Home is where my family is. it’s my very centre, my heart.

ELLE: Where do you see yourself in five years?

JB: Still in the indian team, playing a lot more cricket.

ELLE: Do you have a favourite spot in your home city? somewhere you can just be yourself?

JB: That’s difficult right now, but I’d say in my car. I like to drive around with my friends: we grab coffee or explore the city.
