Jasprit Bumrah bowled havoc with his career-best six-wicket haul as India beat England by 10 wickets in the first ODI on Tuesday. India’s star pacer Jasprit Bumrah, after taking six wickets in the first ODI against England, said getting swing from the first ball made his job easier. It is not easy to get swing in white ball cricket, but after all three T20s in England, fast bowlers are getting swing in ODIs as well.
Jasprit Bumrah said, “It is exciting to find swing and seam in white ball cricket. Because usually on the pitches that are available, there is defensive play on them.
He said, “I was getting swing on the first ball itself and I tried to capitalize on it. When the ball is helping, you don’t have to put in much effort. The real test is when the wicket is flat.
After bowling out England for 110, India chased down the target in 18.4 overs without losing any wickets. Captain Rohit Sharma said, “Shikhar and I understand each other very well. He has been playing ODI cricket for a long time and has been doing well for us in these conditions.
England captain Jos Buttler said, “Indian bowlers capitalized on the situation very well. He bowled very well in the powerplay. Jasprit in particular did very well.
