Former India wicket keeper impressed with Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling in 1st Test vs England


The 1st Test of the India vs England series is currently in the balance thanks to the innings of Ollie Pope. The Indian bowlers are currently struggling to make breakthroughs with the tailenders also coming into the game with the bat. The 2nd innings has been a time when the Indian bowlers have been struggling to bowl consistent lines and lengths in the Test match and this has led to the visitors coming back in the game once again. This is still a match that has suddenly become a thrilling game to be witnessed by everyone.

Even though most of the bowlers have been expensive in the innings, India pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been the bowler who has managed to get the big breakthroughs on what looks like a dead wicket. Bumrah has taken 3 big wickets to get the hosts back into the game and still put them in a controlling position. The wickets of Ben Duckett, Joe Root and Rehan Ahmed are what got the Indians back into the game. Bumrah is also the economic bowler out of all of them going at just 2.6 per over in the innings.

Dinesh Karthik praising Bumrah

Former India wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik has also given his opinions on the performance of Bumrah in the Test match. The 38- Year- Old Nidihas trophy hero has given of positive feedback for the Indian superstar on Cricbuzz saying “ I don’t like to use the word great too easily. But I am not shy calling Jasprit Bumrah a modern-day great, without a doubt”. He also went on to mention that the 30-year-old fast bowler is one of the most trusted bowlers, who can give his team a breakthrough every time he comes in to bowl.

These praises are justified as Bumrah has proven himself as one of the world’s best pacers in the Indian team in all three formats of the game. Bumrah is currently one of the top 10 highest wicket-takers for India right now with over 350 international wickets. His consistent performances have made him one of the biggest superstars of Indian cricket and he still has a lot of cricket in him. The performance in this Test match says it all where he has not only stopped the flow of runs but also made vital breakthroughs against this powerful England batting lineup.
