In the ongoing match between India A and Australia A, Jasprit Bumrah stunned everyone with the bat as he went on to score the highest number of runs on the entire Indian side. India was off to a rocky start Mayank Agarwal was removed shortly. Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill started with the initial overhaul and helped India to stabilize their early stammer.
However, as soon as Gill and Shaw were scalped, the Indian batting line-up started crumbling like a house of cards as Wildermuth and Sean Abbott wreaked havoc through the batting echelons of the Indian side. Abbott and Wildermuth shared six wickets between them. India was reeling at 116 for 8 when Jasprit Bumrah walked out to bat.
To make matters further woeful, Navdeep Saini returned to the pavilion with India wobbling at 123 for 9. This is where the most unexpected unspooled in front of everyone, thanks to dogged batting from Jasprit Bumrah who crafted a few exquisite drives all around the park to give India A a mere fighting chance.
He crafted a few delightful strokes that were bound to grab the eyeballs of everyone who were watching and most importantly, he brought up his half-century with a classic drive.
He got appropriate support from Mohammad Siraj at the other end who looked confident enough in trading the Australian bowlers for long until Bumrah got to his half-century. Siraj was finally dismissed for 22, putting an end to India’s resistance at 194 runs.
Former Indian test opener, Wasim Jaffer, was extremely excited to see how Bumrah stunned everyone with the blade in his hand. Jaffer left another hilarious tweet that is bound to leave others in splits.
