Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling effort gives India a huge lead –
It was a demolition job by Jasprit Bumrah with the ball after Yashasvi Jaiswal helped India reach 396. The 30-year-old pacer picked 6/45 from 15.5 overs to bowl out England for 253. This helped India take a huge lead of 143 with three more days left to play in the game.
India will fancy a huge lead to put the English bowlers under pressure as they will be batting last. During his six-wicket haul, Jasprit Bumrah also crossed the 150-wicket maker in Test cricket.
Kuldeep Yadav was the man who got India into the contest with the wicket of Ben Duckett for 21. Zak Crawley wasted no time in scoring 76 runs but his innings was cut short by Shreyas Iyer. Axar Patel induced a false shot to get rid of the English opener.
Jasprit Bumrah then removed Joe Root for five and Ollie Pope for 23 as England lost four wickets before tea. Post the break, Bumrah struck once again when he had Bairstow caught in the slips for 25. Ben Foakes had no clue when Kuldeep Yadav went past his defences to bowl him out for 6.
Rehan Ahmed then pulled a rank-long hop straight into Gill’s hands to give Yadav his 2nd wicket. Ben Stokes was bowled for 47 by Bumrah and the fifth came when Hartley was caught by Gill for 21. Fittingly it was Jasprit Bumrah who ended the innings when he trapped James Anderson out LBW for 6.
