Team India fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah has made a spectacular comeback in the first Test of the five-match series against England. Bumrah has been struggling with poor form for some time and has been a constant target of critics. In a match against England at Nottingham’s Trent Bridge, Bumrah took a total of 9 wickets and contributed with the bat. Bumrah took four wickets in the first innings and then took five wickets in the second innings against England. In addition, Bumrah played an important 28-run innings in India’s first innings, which meant Team India took a good lead over England. After this comeback, Bumrah’s tweet is going viral. He probably tweeted this to silence his critics.
Bumrah shared two pictures of the Nottingham Test on Twitter, in which he celebrates his wicket. While sharing these two photos, she wrote, ‘You don’t need it yet.’ Looks like Bumrah reacted to his critics this way.
The last day of the Nottingham Test was in the rain, which ended in a draw, with Team India tightening their hold on the match by the fourth day. England won the toss and elected to bat first, but the hosts were reduced to just 183 runs. In the first innings, the Bumrah Pavilion gave way to Roma Burns, Jose Butler, Stuart Broad and James Anderson. In reply, India scored 278 and took a significant lead of 95. Bumrah scored 28 runs off 34 balls with three fours and a six. Batting well in the second innings, England scored 303 and set India a target of 209 for victory.
In the second innings, Bumrah took wickets of Dom Sibley, Jack Crawley, Joe Root, Sam Curran and Stuart Broad. At the end of the fourth day, India were 52 for one wicket and needed 157 for the win. At the same time, for England to win, India needed nine wickets on the last day of the match. Team India were in perfect driving condition, but the rain did not allow them to play a single ball on the last day and the match was declared a draw.
