Watch: Jasprit Bumrah Castles England Opener Alex Lees With A Peach

Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah continued to conquer the Englishmen, this time with the ball as he provided the early breakthrough by smashing the stumps of England opener, Alex Lees, on Day 2.

Earlier, Bumrah broke the world record for the highest runs in an over when he took 35 off Stuart Broad’s over. The previous record for the same was 28 runs, achieved by 3 different batters (Brian Lara, Keshav Maharaj, George Bailey).

After India was bowled out for 416, Bumrah then returned with the ball and got the wicket of Lees. The left-hander had earlier survived a close call off Mohammed Shami but had no such luck this time around.

Bumrah delivered a fast and accurate length delivery which cut back in by a decent amount. Lees played all around it, unable to account for the swing and the ball crashed through the gap between bat and pad.
