‘Yorker King’ Jasprit Bumrah again proved his worth in the Indian cricket team and helped them beat Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Tuesday. With the win over their neighbours, India has secured its place in the semi-final of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup. Opening batsman Rohit Sharma scored his fourth century in the tournament while Bumrah claimed 4 wickets and lead India to victory.
Bumrah has been a tad unlucky to not get wickets with the yorker. Everything just fell into place against Bangladesh at Edgbaston though. He snapped three of his four scalps through these full and wickedly fast deliveries aimed at the block-hole. Sample the two back-to-back wickets he took to end Bangladesh’s vigil. So furious was the delivery to Rubel Hossain that he had no chance to bring his bat down.
Similarly, No.11 batsman, Mustafizur Rahman was barely contemplating the task at hand, by which time Bumrah’s bullseye dislodged his off-stump. The banality with which he whipped out these yorkers was almost mind-boggling.
For your viewing pleasure 👀👌
