Sanjana Ganesan interviews Jasprit Bumrah: Sports presenter, Sanjana Ganesan recently interviewed husband Jasprit Bumrah, who is currently gearing up for the much-anticipated World Test Championship finale against New Zealand starting this Friday. The interview covered many aspects of his personal life, revisiting some of his “Insta Memories” and the couples wedding earlier this year.
Not so surprisingly, during the interaction, when Bumrah was shown a picture from his wedding, the 27-year-old termed it as the best day of his life. The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday tweeted the couple’s fun interaction video from its official handle. Watch it here:

It was a surprise for the fast-bowler when Ganesan turned up for the interview ahead of the contest. The cricketer opened up about some anecdotal incidents from the past to his wife and there was a wide range of photos from his childhood that he had shared from his Instagram account.

The Indian pacer shared his genuine thoughts on each of those photos and also discussed his initial days in sports back when he was at school. And finally, when Ganesan showed him their wedding picture the Indian pacer joked that he has seen the person sitting next to him somewhere before. The star bowler then shared a smile with his wife and recalled, “It’s the best day of my life, it (wedding) happened recently. As you’re aware of the memories, it was the most happiest day of my life. The memory will always be there, and yeah, looking forward to it.”
“Love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.”
Steered by love, we have begun a new journey together. Today is one of the happiest days of our lives and we feel blessed to be able to share the news of our wedding and our joy with you.
