Jasprit Bumrah cleans up Marcus Harris: The Indian fast bowler bowled the Australian opening batsman with a jaffa.
During the third day of the second Test of the ongoing India’s tour of Australia at Perth, India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah drew first blood in the second Australian innings. With the Indian bowlers constantly beating the Australian batsmen since the start of the innings, it was only a matter of time till the wickets started to come.
Bumrah, who drew first blood, affected the dismissal in his seventh over. Having bowled four maiden overs out of his first six overs, Bumrah was on point from the word go.
It all happened on the second over of the 18th over when Harris’ attempt of shouldering arms to a Bumrah delivery saw him losing his wicket. With Bumrah’s ball coming in, Harris was left with no option whatsoever. Harris ended up scoring 20 (56) with the help of two fours.
It is worth mentioning that the wicket came as a reason to celebrate for India captain Virat Kohli, who was and still is in the batsmen’s ears.
With his opening partner in Aaron Finch getting retired hurt after receiving a blow on his finger from Mohammad Shami, Harris’ dismissal exposed Australia’s middle-order. Given the quality of bowling on display, Australia ended up losing a couple of wickets within no time.

Not sure how successful Pete Handscomb can be if he is going to play every off the back foot.
