Jasprit Bumrah castling Stuart Broad: The Indian fast bowler dismissed his English counterpart on the first delivery to pick his fifth wicket.
During the fourth day of the first Test of the ongoing India’s tour of England in Nottingham, India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah picked his sixth Test five-wicket haul by dismissing his English counterpart in Stuart Broad (0) with a jaffa.
It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the 85th over when Bumrah bowled a swinging fuller delivery which hit the stumps after ricocheting off Broad’s pads. Facing only his first delivery, Bumrah’s pinpoint delivery was too much to handle for the left-handed batsman.
Bumrah, who had earlier dismissed the likes of Zac Crawley (6), Dom Sibley (28), Joe Root (109) and Sam Curran (32), registered his second fifer in England. It is worth mentioning that both Bumrah’s five-wicket hauls in England have come at Trent Bridge.
With match bowling figures of 39.4-6-104-9, Bumrah narrowly missed out on picking 10 wickets in a Test match but his praiseworthy efforts in both the innings have worked wonders for his team. Preserved by India captain Virat Kohli to pick wickets with the second new ball, Bumrah didn’t let his captain down by dismissing Root, Curran and Broad in quick succession.
With England scoring 303/10 85.5 overs in the second innings, India need 209 runs to win the match. Apart from Bumrah, Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj also picked a couple of wickets each today.
