Jasprit Bumrah’s love affair with the yorker deliveries still going strong in international cricket. The latest to fall prey for the stunning yorker of Jasprit Bumrah is Australia’s masterful batsman Shaun Marsh. He was completely undone by the peach of a delivery from India’s bowling hero Jasprit Bumrah.
It was in the 4th over of the innings when Jasprit Bumrah bowled a lovely inswinger to Shaun Marsh. He hasn’t got any clue of it rather than walking back with his head down to the masterpiece of Bumrah. Though it was a full delivery, Shaun Marsh feet movement made it a yorker, which made the LED stumps to entertain fans with its Red light.
Earlier, in the innings, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, bowled a beauty to dismiss the Australian skipper Aaron Finch. In the chase of a mammoth 359 runs, they already lost their top two batsmen, who got a great experience while chasing such tallies.
As it happened:
initially, it was India, who won the toss and asked the visitors to roll their arms first. Justifying the decision of the skipper, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar went berserk with their flamboyant knocks for the team.
The duo stitched 193 runs for the first wicket before Rohit Sharma missing out a well-deserved century with 5 runs short. However, Shikhar Dhawan continued his brilliant show, who went on to smash 143 runs in 115 balls. He numbered as many as 18 boundaries and 3 sixes.
Going by their blistering form, it was expected that India would reach anything closer to 400 or even more. But, the same old story repeated again, as the middle-order failed to make most of the platform that was set by the openers.
However, the knocks from Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar down the order, which helped India to put 358 runs on the board. Meanwhile, Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins finished with 5 wickets to his name.
