Jasprit Bumrah’s direct-hit runs out Chris Lynn: The Indian fast bowler found Australia’s middle-order batsman short of his crease.
During the third T20I of the ongoing India’s tour of Australia at Sydney, India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah’s direct-hit saw the end of Australia’s middle-order batsman in Chris Lynn.
It all happened on the second delivery of the 18th over when Marcus Stoinis dabbed a full-length Bumrah delivery towards the point region. While the batsman was initially keen on taking the single, the non-striker in Lynn wasn’t. Within no time, the two of them reversed their roles.
After watching Stoinis going back to his crease, Lynn was left with no option that to run back to the non-striker end. Amid this convolution, Bumrah had ran towards the ball, picked it up and hit a direct-hit at the bowler’s end which found Lynn short of his crease.
Lynn, who was perhaps sent in late in a bid to save him from batting against the spinners, walked back to the pavilion after scoring 13 (10) with the help of one four.
Having dismissed some of Lynn’s potential cheaply during the business end of the Australian innings came of great respite for India who restricted the opposition to 164-6 after their captain Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to bat.
Opening batsman D’Arcy Short was the pick of the Australian batsmen, scoring 33 (29) with the help of five fours. For the visitors, with bowling figures of 4-0-36-4, all-rounder Krunal Pandya was the highest wicket-taker.
