NEW DELHI: Jasprit Bumrah took 6 wickets in the England first innings of the second Test in Visakhapatnam to bowl them out for 253 runs.
The Indian pace spearhead was right on the money in the second innings as well returning with figures of 3/46.
All of his 3 wickets in the second innings were different modes of dismissals. While Jonny Bairstow was trapped plumb in front, Ben Foakes was dismissed with a smart return catch off a slower ball.
But it is the clean bowled dismissal, the sound of timber, that every fast bowler loves to hear. That mode was Bumrah’s third wicket of the innings it sealed the match for India and levelled the five-match series 1-1.
Coming from the round the wicket to the left-handed Tom Hartley, Bumrah bowled a length delivery slanting in from round the wicket. Hartley (36) hung back to defend but the ball nipped away and squared him up and the off-stump was uprooted.
England were bowled out for 292 runs and India won the Test by 106 runs to draw level in the series.
Bumrah’s 9/91 are the second best match figures for an Indian seamer against England after Chetan Sharma‘s 10/188 at Edgbaston in 1986. And this is Bumrah’s second best match figures.
The BCCI shared the video of the dismissal on X:
Bumrah was also adjudged the Man of the Match for taking 9 wickets in the match.
The third Test of the series starts from Feburary 15 in Rajkot.
