India’s ace seamer Jasprit Bumrah stole the show with his jaffas during the last session of Day 4 of the ongoing Boxing Day Test match between India and South Africa at the Centurion. He has been receiving praises from all around for his terrific bowling during South Africa’s second innings.
Meanwhile, during Jasprit Bumrah’s overs, India’s Test captain Virat Kohli was heard instructing his ace spinner Jasprit Bumrah to come around the wicket to South African opening batter Dean Elgar. The stump-mic caught Kohli requesting Bumrah to shift his line of attack to offside and go for the wicket of South African skipper Dean Elgar.
Apparently, there was a crack that had opened up on the surface, and Kohli was asking Jasprit Bumrah to exploit the crack. “Jassi, idhar se daal, out karenge isko,” Virat was heard telling Bumrah while pointing at the crack on the crease.
The incident took place after Jasprit Bumrah was done bowling his second over of the final innings. As Bumrah was about to his position, Kohli was heard telling Bumrah about the crack on the crease by saying “next time bowl in this line, it’s [crack] here. It’s in his eye line”. In the next over itself, Jasprit Bumrah changed his line of attack to offside as he started going around the wicket of Proteas skipper.
Jasprit has been one of the most reliable bowlers for Virat in the ongoing match as he scalped two wickets in the 11.5 overs that he bowled on Day 4, and also leaked only 22 runs as well.
Like several times before, Jasprit Bumrah provided India a much-needed breakthrough by delivering a beautiful incoming delivery to castle South Africa’s Rassie van der Dussen. Following this, Bumrah delivered a sizzling yorker that knocked off nightwatchman Keshav Maharaj’s stumps.
