Jasprit Bumrah has been a go-through bowler for India and he proved it again in the India vs England second Match where he scalped 9 important wickets for the team. With these 9 wickets, Jasprit Bumrah reached his 150-wicket mark in just 34 matches.

He got some crucial wickets like Ollie Pope, Joe Root, and Stokes in the first innings, and Jonny Bairstow and Ben Foakes in the second innings. Jasprit was the most economical bowler for India in the test with an economy of less than 3 runs per over whereas others were struggling to go below 5.

Batting first, India put forth a 396-run total following the exceptional 209-run knock of Yashasvi Jaiswal. The other Indian batters also got a good start but failed to capitalize on it. The same went for England as only opener Zak Crawley was the only batter to go beyond the 50-run mark.

Amid England’s innings, Bumrah bowled two just-unplayable deliveries, one to Ollie Pope and the other to Ben Stokes, that were later floating on social media the entire time. ICC also posted the iconic bowled moment on X.com. Stokes became the 150th scalp of Jasprit Bumrah. England were bowled out at 253 runs and India got a lead of 143 runs.

In the second innings, India lost a few early wickets but Shubman Gill stood up this time and posted a century. 45 runs from Axar and 29 from Ashwin helped India to get a lead of 398 runs after the second innings.

A 50-run opening stand for England helped England to get early momentum. Things were turning in England’s favor when Ben Foakes and Zak Crawley were batting. The skipper called Bumrah and Bumrah delivered and sent Bairstow back to the pavilion just before lunch.

Bumrah caught and bowled Ben Foakes and bowled an absolute peach to Tom Hartley to bundle up England’s innings 106 runs away from the target. Bumrah took 9 wickets in the match with an economy of less than 3 runs per over which is just phenomenal.
