In the second innings, Shami returned unbeaten on 55 off 70 balls with six fours and a six. Despite this, Bumrah scored an unbeaten 34, which is the best score of his career. Before Shami-Bumrah’s charismatic performance, India started at 181 for 6 in the morning and added 105 runs for the loss of two wickets in the first session. This quickly exacerbated England’s good form after the early dismissal of wicketkeepers Rishabh Pant and Ishant Sharma in the morning.
