On Sunday, Jasprit Bumrah made a remarkable comeback which led nearly to win India in the opening Twenty20 International (T20I) against Australia. However, Umesh Kumar was not successful to defend 14 runs in the final as Australia defeated India by three wickets taking a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. Bumrah has executed a perfect textbook T20 act, without betraying any break-induced rustiness.
After conceding just two runs and taking many wickets Bumrah bowled a spectacular penultimate over. After Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah became the second Indian bowler who has been successful in taking 50-plus wickets in T20Is. Additionally, the right-arm pacer ended up the match with figures of three for sixteen.
Bumrah took three wickets in the opening match which indicated that he had taken a total 51 wickets. Ashwin, who is India’s highest wicket-taker who has taken 52 wickets, Bumrah took his position just after him with 51 wickets.
On Wednesday, India is going to face again Australia in the second and final T20I at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. It is likely to say that Bumrah will have the opportunity to become the leading wicket-taker for India in T20Is.
Though Bumrah is quite behind compared to the all-time wicket-taker Shahid Afridi in T20Is with 98 wickets.
In spite of India’s loss, skipper Virat Kohli was all impressed with Bumrah. “Bumrah can do wonders with the ball when it is reversing and did exceptionally well to get us in the game,” Virat Kohli said after the game.
