Frontline Indian speedster Jasprit Bumrah recently got married to TV presenter Sanjana Ganesan in a private ceremony in Goa. A few days after announcing his marriage, Bumrah shared a few pictures with his wife, Sanjana.
In one of the photos, the couple can be seen walking through a gateway of relatives standing on both sides, bursting crackers. A heavy smokey background can also be seen in the picture.
“The last few days have been nothing short of absolutely magical! We are so grateful for all the love & wishes we’ve received. Thank you,” tweeted Bumrah.

However, as soon as Bumrah posted the image, he came under social media scrutiny. Several fans termed the fast-bowler ‘a hypocrite’ for not following what he preached some time back.
One of Bumrah’s old tweet from 2017 was resurfaced where the paceman wished everyone on Deepawali – a major festival in India where people light fireworks. The 27-year-old pacer had uploaded a picture of him and his family celebrating the festival.
Bumrah had also urged people not to use firecrackers by using a hashtag. He had written, “Diwali celebration at home! Wishing everyone a very Happy and prosperous Diwali! #saynotocrackers.”

Fans dug up Bumrah’s old tweet and asked the Indian bowler to remember his words by asking some very valid questions.
One fan wrote: “your crackers no pollution. Our crackers pollution pollution. height of hypocrisy….”

कुछ दिन पहले खुद मना कर रहे थे कि पटाखे न जलाएं अब खुद की शादी में क्या कर रहे भाई ।।
ज्ञान ना बांटे अपनी गेंदबाजी पर ध्यान दें ।
त्योहार कैसे मनाने है और प्रदूषण नियंत्रण कैसे करना है हमें पता है।@Jaspritbumrah93 हम आपकी गेंदबाजी के कायल हैं तो कृपा गरिमा बनाए रखें। pic.twitter.com/KKl9jGTLUR
