Rajasthan Royals leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal had some fun during training as he imitated the bowling action of Mumbai Indians pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

Gopal bowled in Bumrah's sling-arm action while also trying to copy the bowling styles of spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh.

'I've shown it to Bumrah himself. And he's said that I imitate him better than he does it himself,' says Gopal in the video posted by Royals on Twitter.
