Rated as one of best bowlers of his generation, Jasprit Bumrah's success is down to 'reverse Magnus force', according to IIT-Kanpur professor Sanjay Mittal.

Mittal, in one study, has said Bumrah's speed, seam position and rotational speed of 1,000 RPM gives 0.1 spin ratio for the ball, which puts it into reverse Magnus effect regime.

A Reddit user, T_Six_Dracula also shared a very scientific-looking diagram with an explanation made by the professor.

"He discovered that Bumrah's speed, seam position and rotational speed of 1000 RPM gives 0.1 spin ratio for the ball, which puts it into Reverse Magnus Effect regime. A downward force on a ball by Bumrah causes it to dip sharply, which batsmen find difficult to pick."
