Indian paceman Jasprit Bumrah registered his third five-wicket haul in Test cricket and a six-wicket haul overall in the third Test against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Friday.
Nathan Lyon was Bumrah’s fifth victim and was dismissed on a duck with a brilliant incoming delivery coming on to the pads. Apart from Lyon, Bumrah picked the wickets of Marcus Harris, Shaun Marsh, Travis Head, Tim Paine and Josh Hazlewood.
Bumrah has now become the first Asian bowler to take a 5-fer in Australia, England and South Africa in the same calendar year.
Bumrah’s 6-33 is also the best bowling figures for an Indian at the MCG.
