Jasprit Bumrah unhappy: The Indian spearhead wasn’t too pleased with his fellow bowler’s fielding effort at third-man.
During the third T20I of the ongoing India’s tour of New Zealand in Hamilton, India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah expressed displeasure with fellow fast bowler Mohammed Shami after the latter put on display a half-hearted fielding effort at third-man.
It all happened on the third delivery of the third over when New Zealand opening batsman Martin Guptill slashed a Bumrah delivery towards Shami at third-man.
With the ball going towards Shami’s right, he ran but didn’t really put in a dive to attempt a catch. In a situation which demanded a better effort, Shami not doing the same saw Bumrah being unhappy with Shami.
Chasing a 180-run target, an intriguing chase saw New Zealand also scoring 179/6 in 20 overs to win the match. Requiring nine runs to win in the last over, the hosts couldn’t seal the chase despite veteran batsman Ross Taylor hitting a six on the first delivery of the over.
Shami dismissing New Zealand captain Kane Williamson (95) and Taylor (17) in the same over played a vital role in the match entering a super over. It is worth mentioning that Taylor played on a delivery when New Zealand needed one run to win off the last ball.
After Williamson won the toss and invited India in to bat, the visitors scored 179/5 in 20 overs on the back of vice-captain Rohit Sharma’s 20th T20 half-century, 65 (40), with the help of six fours and three sixes.

Bumrah is the best death bowler. But even the best have off-days.
