Kyle Jamieson continued to tear apart the Indian batting unit in the afternoon session of the 2nd day as he claimed Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah within a space of 2 balls to claim his 5th five-wicket-haul in just his 8th Test.
It all happened on the 4th ball of the 92nd over when Jamieson got one to seam away from the corridor of uncertainty, forcing Ishant Sharma to poke at it and give a simple caught-behind chance to BJ Watling.
If that wasn’t enough, Jamieson backed it up with an inswinging yorker to pin Jasprit Bumrah leg-before-wicket and claimed his 5th five-wicket-haul.

All of a sudden, Jamieson was on a hat-trick but Mohammed Shami ensured that he denied the pacer from the same as he leaned into a brilliant drive for a four.
However, the Indian innings came to a close on the first ball of the very next over as Jadeja leg glanced at a poor Trent Boult delivery straight to BJ Watling.
Jamieson eventually ended up with figures of 5/31 in 22 overs as India’s first innings folded for 217 in 92.1 overs.
