Jasprit Bumrah took to Instagram today to share a cryptic story that has since sent shockwaves through the cricketing community and moments later he unfollowed his IPL franchise Mumbai Indians on Instagram. This move has left fans curious and speculating about potential rifts or changes in Bumrah’s career path.

While the exact reasons for Bumrah’s decision remain unclear, several speculations have emerged in the wake of this surprising move.

  1. Future Captaincy snub: Jasprit Bumrah has been one of the crucial players of Mumbai Indians and has been serving them since 2013. During this period he has helped his team to 5 IPL Titles by taking 145 Wickets in 120 Matches with an amazing economy of 7.39. With the curtains slowly and steadily falling down on Rohit Sharma’s IPL career, it is imperative for the franchise to find a replacement for the captaincy position. Bumrah could be a potential contender for the role but ever since, Mumbai Indians have traded in Hardik Pandya his chances for future captaincy look bleak.
  2. Contractual Negotiations: One other reason Bumrah distanced himself from his team on social media could be contractual negotiations. It’s possible that Bumrah and the Mumbai Indians are currently in discussions about a new contract, and the unfollowing could be a subtle negotiation tactic.
  3. Personal Reasons: Athletes, like anyone else, experience personal changes and challenges. Now that Bumrah has become a father, he might have personal reasons for distancing himself from cricket on social media, and this move may not necessarily reflect any professional discord.
  4. Team Changes: The IPL is known for its player transfers and team reshuffles during auctions. Bumrah’s decision to unfollow Mumbai Indians could be related to upcoming changes in the team roster or management, prompting him to keep his options open.
  5. Social Media Strategy: Athletes are becoming increasingly conscious of their social media presence. Bumrah’s decision might be a calculated move to keep fans engaged and create a buzz around his profile, leading to increased visibility and interaction.
