Well, yet another day in the office, which was utilised to the perfection by Jasprit Bumrah. The flamboyant cricketer showed his incredible skills of hitting the right lines and lengths in the end phase of the innings. His incredible spell helped India seal a victory in the cliffhanger. In between, fans couldn’t stop themselves from hailing his brilliance
Marcus Stoinis and Nathan Coulter-Nile were at the crease when Indian skipper Kohli decided to hand the bowl to his most reliable bowling option – Bumrah – in the 46th over of the match.
Jasprit Bumrah finished with 2/29 in 10 overs:
The 25-year-old didn’t disappoint his skipper and picked up the vital wickets of Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins to leave the Aussie tail exposed. Bumrah just gave a single run away in the over, which was picked up by Stoinis in the very first delivery.
After the chat with Dhoni and Rohit, Virat Kohli gave 48th over to Bumrah despite knowing that last over should be bowled either Kedar Jadhav or Vijay Shankar.
However, Bumrah, like he did in the 46th over, gave just a run off his over as Stoinis didn’t take any risk against him and pushed the game to the last over. Bumrah displayed high-notch skills.
Earlier, in the match, initially, it was once again Australia, who won the toss and asked the home side to bat first. The vice-captain Rohit Sharma failed to come good for the team, as he walked back without a run to his name. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan looked quiet fluent in his batting approach.
But, out of nowhere, Glenn Maxwell was introduced to the bowling section, who sent back Shikhar Dhawan back to the hut. It left India in the deep sort of troubles, however, Virat Kohli found his Midas Touch, who scored a scintillating century.
However, with none other batsmen helping Virat, they managed to put only 250 on the board. Australians started well in their chase but unfortunately, failed to hang in the middle when it mattered the most.
Here are a few tweets:
Outstanding innings from Virat but really impressed by how Vijay Shankar soaked the pressure in the last over . Jasprit Bumrah's final 2 overs for just 2 runs was a great exhibition of death over bowling. Congratulations Team India on a fabulous win #INDvAUS

Jadhav played the role of a fifth bowler to perfection. The wicket of Khawaja. Bumrah did what he does for fun—just too good. #IndvAus

Bumrah just finds a way to get into the game. Kohli with the ball?
