‘This is arrogance’: Twitter roasts Jasprit Bumrah as he takes a dig at fans after claiming top spot in Test Rankings


In the dynamic world of cricket, emotions often run high, and reactions on social media can be as unpredictable as the game itself. Recently, the cricketing fraternity witnessed a historic moment as Jasprit Bumrah became the first Indian pacer to claim the top spot in the ICC Test Bowling Rankings. While the cricketing world was abuzz with congratulatory messages, Bumrah’s response on social media stirred up a storm, leading to a Twitter roast that had fans talking.

Jasprit Bumrah’s sensational rise to the top

Bumrah’s journey to the pinnacle of Test bowling rankings was nothing short of spectacular. His sensational nine-wicket haul against England in the second Test of the series in Vizag not only secured his place at the top but also played a pivotal role in India’s comprehensive victory. The achievement marked several records, including being the first Indian pacer to claim the top spot in Tests and only the fourth Indian bowler overall to achieve this feat. However, amidst the celebration, a subtle storm was brewing on social media.

Bumrah shares a cryptic Instagram story for fans

As fans flooded social media with congratulatory messages, Bumrah took to Instagram to share his unfiltered reaction. In a cryptic Instagram story, he posted an image of an empty stadium with the text ‘The Support’ overlaid, contrasting it with a packed stadium overlaid with ‘The Congratulations’ text. This seemingly indirect dig at fans who had trolled him during his low phase sparked a heated exchange on social media.

Last year, Bumrah faced significant criticism and trolling for missing important tournaments due to injury. Sarcastic memes and comments questioning his commitment circulated widely on social media. The Instagram story appeared to be Bumrah’s way of addressing those who had not supported him during challenging times but were quick to offer congratulations now.

Fan backlash and criticism

Nevertheless, Bumrah’s strong message through his Instagram story didn’t go down well with the fans. Many took to social media to express their disappointment with Bumrah’s apparent lack of appreciation for the support he receives. Some argued that criticism comes with the territory of being a top athlete, while others highlighted the resilience shown by other cricketing legends in the face of adversity.
