Pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah established himself as the Indian team’s premier bowler in limited-overs cricket in a quite short span of time. Bumrah is questionably the premium death overs bowler in the world cricket at the moment.
Bumrah scales new sporting heights and his grandfather is watching with immense pride in Uttarakhand. Santokh Singh Bumrah, the grandfather of Jasprit, lives in Uttarkhand driving an auto-rickshaw and stays in a rented house, bring his grandson for a whopping Rs 1.2 crore by Mumbai Indians in 2014 of the Indian Premier League auction.
Santokh said to ABP news about his grandson “Jasprit Bumrah is my grandson. I saw him on television and I was very happy. I somehow manage my expenses. I ride a tempo to make ends meet.”
According to the reports from Hindustan Times, Santohk Singh Bumrah ran a successful business in Gujarat before suffering massive losses and moved to Uttarakhand in 2006. Jasprit father Jasbir Singh Bumrah died in 2001, involved in the business.
Talking about Jasprit father, Santohk Singh said “After Jasbir’s death in 2001, the fate turned and I started running into losses. Sold out factories and shifted to Kiccha with my brothers.” He added about Jasprit successful in the international matches “It feels great to see Jasprit on television screen performing so well in international matches. I pray to God for his success and meet him once before I die.”
Santohk said about the reason to stay away from Jasprit is due to his latter’s mother. “Jasprit’s mother was not willing to see us. Though recently my daughter visited Ahmadabad. I tried hard to get Jasprit’s contact but couldn’t. I would be grateful if you could please help.”
