It was quite a day of Test cricket at MCG. The fast bowlers of both the sides stood tall to see as many as 15 wickets in the day. Jasprit Bumrah for India and Pat Cummins for Australia were the stars with the ball, who bowled exceptionally well. Meanwhile, the former Australian Michael Clarke hails the efforts of the duo.

It was an impressive show from Jasprit Bumrah to dismantle Australian lineup for just 151 runs on the board. The right-handed fast bowler rattled the defence of Australians with ease to register his best bowling figures in an innings.
”Two of the best young fast bowlers in the world doing their thing today by Pat Cummins and Jasprit Bumrah,” Michael Clarke quoted for the fantastic display by the duo.

Jasprit Bumrah picked up 6-wicket-haul:
Initially, he got rid of Marcus Harris with a bouncer trap when Ishant Sharma took a dolly at fine leg. It was followed by a beautiful Slower delivery to Shaun Marsh, who was trapped plumb in front of the wicket.
Later, he produced an incredible delivery to give a jog for wooden furniture behind Travis Head. Then, it was Australian skipper Tim Paine, who nicked Jasprit Bumrah to Rishabh Pant for being his 4th victim.
Following it up, he bundled out the Australian tail by sending Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood in quick succession to register a six-wicket haul to his name on the MCG honour board.
Pat Cummins Wreaked Havoc:
Surprisingly, India hasn’t imposed follow-on to Australians despite securing a handy 292-run lead. They asked Australians to take the field to bowl at them.
Australians, who accepted the challenge sent half of the Australian batting line-up for just 44 runs on the board. Previous inning century scorer Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli walked for a duck while Rahane and Vihari registered single digit scores alongside Rohit Sharma. Pat Cummins was the wrecker-in-chief, who picked 4 wickets while Josh Hazlewood chipped in with 1 wicket.
