WTC final: Poor Bumrah bowled, partner Ganeshan Trolled

TV presenter and the wife of Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah, Sanjana Ganesan shared a picture from Day 3 of the World Test Championship finals (WTC) but the response she got from the fans was not that she expected.

Jasprit Bumrah hasn’t had the best of starts to the WTC Final 2021. The right-arm quick bowled 11 overs on Day 3 where he gave away 34 runs and failed to pick up a single wicket. Moreover, he was India’s most expensive bowler as he leaked runs at a rate of 3.1. 

A lot will depend on his performance if India is to wrap the New Zealand innings as quickly as possible. The Kiwis are currently in the driver’s seat with their scoreboard reading 101/2 as they look to go past India’s 217.

Ganeshan trolled over Bumrah’s performance:

Becoming an influential couple in the world of Indian cricket has to be one of the most tricky tasks ever. They both recently got hitched in an intimate affair in Goa on the 15th March 2021. Since then, both Bumrah and Sanjana have kept their fans updated about their lives through social media.

Sanjana Ganeshan shared a picture of her conversation with Dinesh Karthik from Day 3 of the World Test Championship finals but the response she got from the fans was more about Bumrah than her.

Similar to what we have seen in the past, once again, it was the cricketer’s partner who had to listen to the unwarranted criticism of the fans, even though they had nothing to do with the fact that the athletes were simply having a bad day.

This isn’t the first or the most famous incident in which the cricketer’s spouse has been blamed for the lack of form shown by a cricketer and has been trolled and judged on social media just because their husbands struggled to score big runs or take big wickets.

Actor and the wife of Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma has been living in this toxic world for over a couple of years during which if the Indian skipper failed to put up enough numbers, it felt like a field day for the actor.

In the first innings of the WTC final, Bumrah did struggle a little bit on either side of the pitch and was visibly anxious in the middle. After going wicketless and being one of the more expensive bowlers for Kohli, Bumrah’s dismissal on the golden duck brought him insult to injury.
