Jaipur Traffic Police clarify to Jasprit Bumrah for overstepping

Posted June 25, 2017

The image showing pacer Jasprit Bumrah conceding a no-ball in ICC Champions Trophy finals against Pakistan which was used for awareness of traffic rules may have fetched accolades and appreciation for Jaipur traffic police, but pacer Bumrah is not happy.

Bumrah's no-ball, bowled against Fakhar Zaman in the final of the prestigious tournament earlier this month, gave the risky batsman a second life after he had been caught by wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Zaman, 27 went on to score 114 runs - his maiden ODI hundred in the all-important ICC Champions Trophy final. "You know it can be costly".

And their victim is Indian seam bowler Jasprit Bumrah. The cricketer had since then become a target of social media trolls and the subject of many memes.

"But don't worry I won't make fun of the mistakes which you guys make at your work.because I believe humans can make mistakes", read another tweet.

Bumrah took the trolls in his stride as he understands that ardent fans of cricket sometimes go overboard and don't care about with the emotions of cricketers when Indian team loses crucial matches.

The Jaipur Traffic Police posted a series of tweets clarifying that they didn't intend to hurt his or anyone else's feelings and subsequently, deleted their tweeted highlighting the ad campaign. With over 500 RTs, the tweet was a hit, and the police put up a billboard of it as well.

The cricketer took to micro-blogging website Twitter to vent his anger at the traffic police.
