Watch: Jasprit Bumrah Claims The Big Fish As Joe Root Nicks Off To Virat Kohli In The Slip Cordon

Jasprit Bumrah once again proved to be the clutch player for Team India as the champion pacer finally ‘uprooted’ the immovable force that is the England captain, Joe Root.

India had asserted themselves into a dominating position going into the Tea break with Ishant Sharma two quick scalps in the form of Haseeb Hameed and Jonny Bairstow but Joe Root was still holding firm for the home side.

That all changed within a space of three balls after the Tea break as Bumrah got rid of Root with a peach of a delivery; one that hit the back of length region to force Joe Root to poke at it.

He poked at it and skipper Virat Kohli did the rest by safely pouching it at first slip.

The significance of Root’s dismissal was perfectly summed up by Virat’s reactions as the ever-enthusiastic Indian skipper let out a guttural roar before doing a celebratory stint.

Root’s wicket came at the worst possible time for England and it’s up to the likes of Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali and Sam Curran to bat out the remaining 34 overs against a ruthless Indian attack
