Jasprit Bumrah held his nerve in the third ODI and helped India win the series in a nail-biting contest at Kanpur.
Tom Latham got run out by Bumrah and MS Dhoni on the fifth ball of the 48th over which turned out to be the turning point of the game. Bumrah bowled a superb yorker to Colin de Grandhomme and all he could do was to save his stumps.
The ball went towards Dhoni who threw it towards Bumrah as Grandhomme and Latham were involved in a huge mix-up. Latham was way down the pitch and had to return as Grandhomme was not ready to take a single. Bumrah hit the stumps directly and it gave India the most crucial wicket they needed in the death overs.
However, when Dhoni threw the ball towards Bumrah he had enough time to run towards the wickets and dislodge the bails. But, Bumrah went with his instinct and took a shot at the stumps and it worked. After the wicket, Dhoni was laughing and signalling to Bumrah that he could have run towards the wickets and dislodged the bails.
Here’s the video of Tom Latham’s run-out:
