Root played an unbeaten 180 in the first innings and England expected a similar innings in the second innings. But Jasprit Bumrah, the villain in the eyes of Indian fans, did not let Root score long this time, throwing a lot of pain in the first innings. Root was able to score only 33 off 60 balls with five boundaries and Bumrah gave India a big lead by bringing in India’s captain Virat Kohli. Kohli was so happy after taking a root catch, he ran to the boundary and celebrated it there. Bumrah has become a hero in the eyes of Indian fans by getting a root wicket. Bumrah is getting a lot of praise on social networking sites.
Bumrah scored 13 no balls in the first innings
India bowled a total of 17 no-balls in the first innings, of which 13 were bowled by Jaspreet Bumrah. Bumrah made 79 in 26 overs, but could not get a single wicket in his name. Bumrah threw three consecutive no-balls in England’s innings. Bumrah, famous for Yorker bowling, is completely out of line. In the 126th over of the England innings, Bumrah pitched 4 no-balls against James Anderson and took a total of 10 balls. The bumra lasted 15 minutes. The fans trotted him over it and he became a villain in the eyes of the fans. But now he is a hero in the second innings.
