India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, on Tuesday (November 28), raised a number of eyebrows with his social media activity. The star bowler became the subject of much speculation after posting a cryptic post on his personal Instagram handle.

He took to Instagram to post a story that read: “Silence is sometimes the best answer.” The story became viral soon as clueless fans and followers tried to decipher its meaning amidst rumors and discussions about his professional career. Another rumour also stated that he had unfollowed Mumbai Indians on Instagram which only added fuel to the fire.

Jasprit Bumrah’s post came just a day after Hardik Pandya’s sensational return to Mumbai Indians. A few fans also suggested that the pacer was not happy with the allrounder’s return as it could impact his chances of leading the franchise after Rohit Sharma.

Jasprit Bumrah has been a key member of the Mumbai Indians team since joining the franchise back in 2013. During his time with the Mumbai-based outfit, he has won five IPL titles. So far, he has taken 145 wickets at an average of 23.30.

Will Jasprit Bumrah leave Mumbai Indians?

Will Jasprit Bumrah leave Mumbai Indians for any other franchise after the return of Hardik Pandya? The question has become a major talking point in the Indian cricket fraternity ever since he posted the cryptic message on his Instagram handle.

However, RevSportz has reported that all is well between the bowler and the franchise and he is set to play for them in IPL 2024. The news outlet has also reported that the pacer never followed Mumbai Indians in the first place, so there was no question of unfollowing them on social media. Jasprit Bumrah does not follow the Indian team’s pages on social media either.

Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah last played for Team India in the World Cup earlier this month and is likely to return to action when the team tours South Africa next month. He had a good outing in the World Cup where he picked up an impressive 20 wickets in 11 games.
