Recently, Mumbai Indians’ official Twitter handle shared a video where Bumrah spoke about Mumbai Indians bowling coach Shane Bond.
The Indian pace bowler revealed that he shares a great relationship with Bond, who is the former Kiwi fast bowler. He said that Bond has helped him develop as a pacer and shaped his career.
He said: “I met him for the first time in 2015. As a child I had seen him bowl and was always very fascinated with how he used to bowl for New Zealand and how he used to operate. When I met him over here it was a good experience. He helped me a lot to open my mind to different things that I could try on the cricket field. That was very good and that relationship has only gotten better each and every year.”
The 27-year-old revealed that he consults with Shane Bond about his performances and it has been a good journey together being the Mumbai Indians side in the IPL. He hopes that it continues in the upcoming years as well.

It has been a good journey and hopefully every year, I keep learning something new and try to add new things to my bowling. He has played a major role in that. It’s been a great relationship and hopefully this continues for many years to come.”
