Jasprit Bumrah dismisses Shaun Marsh: The Indian fast bowler dismissed the Australian middle-order batsman with a beauty.
During the third day of the third Test of the ongoing India’s tour of Australia at Melbourne, India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah bowled a slower one which found Australia middle-order batsman Shaun Marsh wanting in front of the stumps.
It happened on the final delivery of the 33rd over when Bumrah, bowling from around the wicket, bowled a change-up delivery which completely deceived the batsman. Marsh, who was perhaps expecting another quicker delivery from the bowler, seemed to have no answer whatsoever.
With the ball hitting Marsh’s front pad on the full and the Indians appealing in unison, umpire Ian Gould didn’t hesitate to raise his finger immediately. Marsh, who came in to bat at No. 4, ended up scoring 19 (61) with the help of one four.
Having bagged his second wicket since morning, Bumrah once again proved as to why he is so crucial in this Indian bowling attack. With Marsh becoming the fourth Australian wicket to fall, his departure made things all the more difficult for them.
Earlier, Bumrah dismissed opening batsman Marcus Harris (22) in the first hour of the day. Having dismissed Marsh on the last ball before lunch, Bumrah came back to castle Travis Head’s (20) stumps a few overs into the second session.

Just saw speed comparisons of that Bumrah yorker with his normal delivery speed. Shaun Marsh could have gone for a sip of water and still returned in time to get out lbw by the time that yorker arrived. #AusvInd

A moment of genius from Bumrah. Slower ball on the final delivery of the session traps Shaun Marsh (19) plumb in front.

In many ways Bumrah has been the find of the year in Test cricket. The last delivery before lunch — fast, swinging yorker which got Shaun Marsh — shows why. Great session for India.
