India’s sensational bowler Jasprit Bumrah emerged out as a savior for the Indian cricket team, yet again, on the final day of the ongoing fourth Test against England. Jasprit changed the game by picking two crucial wickets in his two consecutive overs to shatter the hopes of England to make a comeback into the game.
First, it was England’s Ollie Pope, who was caught off-guard by Jasprit’s delivery. This wicket was a much-needed breakthrough to the Indian cricket team and with this, England had now lost two wickets after lunch. In the next over, Bumrah picked another wicket with an absolute peach of a yorker to dismiss Jonny Bairstow for a duck.
With this, Jasprit Bumrah also reached a personal milestone. He has etched his name in the history books by becoming the fastest Indian speedster to reach 100 Test wickets.
Jasprit Bumrah’s magical spell put India in a commanding position in the ongoing 4th Test match. India requires only two more wickets to win the game (at the time of publishing this article).
Meanwhile, social media has been flooded with amazing reactions from netizens. From cricketers, experts to fans, everyone is all praises for the Indian speedster. Among many, legendary Australian bowler Shane Warne also joined the bandwagon and hailed Jasprit Bumrah for his terrific spell to help his team.
In his Tweet, he bowed down to the yorker king as he heaped praises on his outstanding spell. He called his performance the ‘spell of the summer’. He wrote:
“Take a bow @Jaspritbumrah93! That spell of 18.104.22.168 was outstanding and the spell of the summer so far. A class above any other fast bowler in this test match on a flat wicket ! Outstanding @SkyCricket”
