IND vs ENG 5th Test: After creating havoc with the bat in the ongoing Edgbaston Test against England, Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah is showing wonders with the ball as well. Batting first in this match, India scored 416 runs on the basis of Jasprit Bumrah’s stormy innings along with centuries from Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja. When England came to open their innings, both the English openers knelt in front of Jasprit Bumrah’s sharp bowling. Alex Lees 6 and Jack Crowley returned to the pavilion after scoring 9 runs.
Bumrah clean bowled Lees
In the third over of the innings, Jasprit Bumrah clean bowled Alex Lees to give India the first breakthrough. Jasprit Bumrah bowled the last ball of the over with a no ball. In white ball cricket, the batsman is happy when the bowler bowls a no ball, but Alex Lees will not be happy with this no ball by Bumrah. In fact, on that ball, Crowley had given striker Lees for a run and on the next extra ball, Bumrah clean bowled Lees and showed the way to the pavilion.
Jack Crowley made a victim in the slip
After lunch, Bumrah, who brought the fourth over of the innings, showed the way to the pavilion by getting Crowley caught by Shubman Gill in the slips on the very first ball. Bumrah threw this ball a little away from the wicket. Crowley went to chase the ball and the ball took the outer edge of the bat and reached Gill’s hands. Bumrah was on a hat-trick after taking two wickets in two consecutive balls, but Root did not allow his hat-trick to be completed.
Bumrah rocked with the bat too
Jasprit Bumrah played an unbeaten knock of 31 runs off 16 balls in the first innings, during which he collected 35 runs from Broad’s over, which was the costliest over in the history of Test cricket. The Indian captain hit 4 fours and 2 sixes in this innings, during which his strike rate was 193.75.
