ENG vs IND 2018: Twitter Bashes Jasprit Bumrah For Yet Another Costly No Ball

Fans gave Jasprit Bumrah a tough time on social media after yet another costly no ball from the pacer in the ongoing fourth England vs India Test.

Bumrah bowling no-ball at a crucial time of the game is nothing new. In fact, it would be apt to say that Bumrah taking wicket off no-ball at a crucial time of the game has become quite a common phenomena nowadays. Who can forget his infamous no-ball against Pakistan in last year’s Champions Trophy final.

Bumrah got the better of Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman, who edged a ball to MS Dhoni when he was batting on 3. The umpire wanted to check the no-ball and the replays clearly showed that Bumrah had overstepped his mark. Zaman made full use of the opportunity as he went to score his maiden ODI century and was only dismissed after scoring 111 more runs. Pakistan had gone on to thrash India to win the title.

Well, the right-arm pacer did something similar on day one of the fourth Test. And only time will tell how costly it will prove for  India.

On the third delivery of the fifth over, Bumrah pinned England skipper Joe Root on the pads. The umpire gave his decision in the batsman’s favour but India reviewed the decision. However, their hopes of seeing Root making his way to the pavilion soon disappeared when the replays showed Bumrah overstepped. His front foot was right on the line, nothing behind it. Replays then went on to show that Root was plumb. Even in the last game, he had dismissed Adil Rashid off a no-ball. Fortunately, on the occasion it did not cost India much.

Meanwhile the Twitter users were quick to troll Bumrah for yet another no-ball even though he had dismissed Keaton Jennings for a duck. Here are some of the reactions:



An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
