Jasprit Bumrah Created A New Bowling Record In ODI Format

Assistance of swing and seam movement when jelled with Jasprit Bumrah’s elite skill makes the already incredible speedster deadly and almost unplayable. So much that the revered England white-ball team got bundled out for 110 in 25.2 overs in the first ODI at The Oval on Tuesday.

Making full use of the swinging and seaming conditions on offer, Bumrah took only his second five-wicket haul in 71 ODIs.

But, with bowling figures of 6/19, he recorded the third-best ever bowling performance by an Indian bowler in ODI cricket – only behind Stuart Binny’s 6/4 vs Bangladesh in 2014 and Anil Kumble’s 6/12 vs West Indies in 1993.

Here’s the list of the top 5 ODI bowling performances by Indian bowlers:

6/4 Stuart Binny v Ban Mirpur 2014
6/12 Anil Kumble v WI Kolkata 1993
6/19 Jasprit Bumrah v Eng The Oval 2022
6/23 Ashish Nehra v Eng Durban 2003
6/25 Kuldeep Yadav v Eng Nottingham 2018

This super-spell from Bumrah, supported well by Mohammed Shami, who took three wickets, Prasidh Krishna, who took one, and Hardik Pandya, helped India bowl out the ODI World Champions for 110 – which is now England’s lowest-ever ODI total against India, lower than their previous one of 125 from 2006 in Jaipur.

India were right on the money from the first over. In the batting powerplay, Bumrah and Shami wreaked havoc upon the hosts’ batting line-up. Bumrah’s bowling figures by the end of his first spell of five overs read: 5-2-9-4. And by the time the 15th over was done, with Krishna also getting into the act, the visitors had effectively sealed the game.

England lost 5 wickets in the first 8 overs and were 8 down, including the dismissal of skipper Jos Buttler, by the 17-over mark. Four of England’s top six were dismissed for a duck; their new skipper Jos Buttler scored 30 and was caught in the deep trying to put some pressure back on India.

Having won the T20I series 2-1, India have started on the right foot in the ODI series as they prepare for the home World Cup next year, with Bumrah being their key man with the ball.
