India beat Australia by 6 wickets in Nagpur T20
Jasprit Bumrah returns to Indian team after injury
Bumrah clean bowled Aaron Finch with a precise yorker
New Delhi. India defeated Australia by 6 wickets in the second match of the 3 T20 series held in Nagpur. The match had to be reduced to 8-8 overs due to rain. Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first. For this match, two changes were made in the playing XI of Team India. Jasprit Bumrah returned to the team in place of Umesh Yadav. He came out to play the first match after the injury. Captain Rohit called him to bowl in the fifth over without giving him the new ball. The first ball of Bumrah’s over was wide. On the second, Australian captain Aaron Finch hit a four.
Finch was playing 31 runs off 15 balls. His eyes were completely frozen. In such a situation, the wicket of Finch was important for India. Then he went, for which Bumrah is known. He bowled a yorker in the last ball of his over. By the time Finch brought the bat down, Bumrah’s yorker had done its job and the Australian captain was clean bowled.
Australian captain Finch was also impressed by this yorker from Bumrah that despite being bowled on this ball, the Indian could not stop himself from clapping for the pacer. A video of this is going viral, in which Finch can be seen patting his bat after being bowled. Bumrah had bowled a similar dangerous yorker in his second over as well. Somehow Steve Smith had put his bat on it. But, in the process of doing so, he fell on the ground.

Bumrah made a comeback in Team India
Even though Bumrah proved to be a bit expensive in the comeback match. He took 1 wicket for 23 runs in 2 overs. But, his ball showed both the speed and the edge, which is a matter of great relief for Team India, as the Indian team is struggling with the problem of poor performance of the bowlers in the death overs. In such a situation, with the return of Bumrah, this problem can be overcome to a great extent.
India won with Rohit’s captaincy innings
Batting first, Australia scored 90 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 8 overs. India achieved this target with 4 balls remaining on the captaincy innings of Rohit Sharma. Rohit scored an unbeaten 46 runs in 20 balls. He also hit 4 fours and as many sixes.
