Twitter Reacts As Jasprit Bumrah's Fiery Spell Puts England Under The Pump In The 1st ODI At The Oval

Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah dismantled England’s top-order with a stunning spell in the first ODI on Tuesday. He vindicated his skipper’s decision to bowl first against a terrifying batting lineup.

Bumrah first bowled a double-wicket maiden over where he took the wickets of Jason Roy and Joe Root in the space of three deliveries. The latter was in great form but couldn’t do much against the fiery Bumrah.

Soon after, Ben Stokes fell for a golden duck to Mohammed Shami at the other end. Bumrah kept the pressure up and he picked up his third wicket in the form of Jonny Bairstow.

Liam Livingstone and Jos Buttler had the responsibility of playing it out but the former looked scratchy against the moving ball. He eventually fell as he looked to jump down the track against Bumrah.

The 28-year-old bowled a perfect inswinging yorker and it dislodged the bails, leaving England stuttering at 30/5 inside the first powerplay. It is the third occasion for an Indian bowler to take four wickets inside the first ten overs.

Bumrah also conceded just 9 runs in his 5-over burst, of which 6 runs were off wides. There was also a dropped catch of Moeen Ali, who could have been sent back for a duck if Rishabh Pant held on to a tough chance.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Jasprit Bumrah’s 5-over spell:
