Jasprit Bumrah gives batsmen sleepless nights but ensures he gets enough shut-eye and is up early in the morning.

“I try to sleep well. I believe if you start your day early, it gives you energy which carries you through the entire day,” Bumrah said at an event in Mumbai a few days ago. Dressed in trendy athleisure — white T-shirt, black jeans and white sneakers — the 25-year-old seemed to be in shape and on the road to recovery from the back injury he suffered in September.

The competitiveness that he shows on the field is one that Bumrah maintains in all things. “When I play any sport, the driving force is to be the best,” he said. “I may be playing on the PlayStation or some other sport, but I always try to give my best.”

The game is not over till it’s over is the belief that helps the lad from Gujarat.

“Sometimes you feel that the match is over, but sometimes you see teams finding a way and winning,” Bumrah said. “Till the last ball is not bowled, you have to keep giving your best shot even if things don’t work out. Maybe next match. In life also, if I am stuck in a situation and things are not going so well, I maintain a positive perspective.”

Fitness is another important department for the youngster. In a team where the captain leads by example and teammates keep pushing one and other, ‘Boom’, as Bumrah is fondly known, also feels the need to be fit.

“For us, because we play professional sports, we have to tick all the boxes. I try to eat well and do my gym training well,” he said.
