Indian bowler Bumrah not happy with road safety ad

Jasprit Bumrah was left enraged by Jaipur Traffic Police's decision to use his ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final no-ball image as a campaign for road safety. "You know it can be costly".

Pakistani opener Fakhar Zaman, who hit a sparking century, should have been out for just 3 runs off Bumrah's bowling, but the footage showed the bowler had overstepped. Claiming that their intent was not to hurt the sentiments, the police on Saturday removed the posters showing Bumrah over-stepping the line during ICC Champions Trophy final.

A recent advertisement by Jaipur Traffic Police might well have been hilarious, but the subject of their humour didn't take it too kindly.

The right-arm fast bowler took to Twitter and slammed the authorities for mocking him publically. This has led to them apologising to the paceman, on the social media.

In the picture shows Bumrah's no-ball, hastening the Indian team's failure.

He put another tweet insisting that he would not indulge in similar bigotry, saying that humans can make mistakes.

However, Bumrah seems to have taken offence at Jaipur Police's initiative as he said he felt let down despite giving his all for the country. While many people found the reference amusing, the Jaipur Traffic department faced the heat from the cricketer for clearly poking fun at one mistake that the young and supremely talented player made. We have clarified the same on Jaipur traffic police twitter handle.
