His prediction came true moments later.

“I can guarantee you Bumrah is going to tell how hard a fast bowler’s life is,” Rahul predicted in the video.

“Your job is easier to bat, hide behind a bat,” Bumrah was heard telling Rahul.

“What did I tell you? Did I not call it?” Rahul bragged after his prediction came true.
