IND vs ENG Vizag Test: Jasprit Bumrah Takes 5-For, Completes 150 Test Wickets To Leave England Reeling

India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah on Saturday completed 150 Test wickets during the ongoing match against England in Vizag. Bumrah clean bowled England captain Ben Stokes with a peach of a delivery in the third session of Day 2 to achieve the feat.

He sent back Stokes on 47 with a delivery that came back into the left-handed batter after pitching in the 50th over to leave England reeling at 229 for 8, still 167 runs behind India in the first innings.

Stokes could not believe his luck at facing such a delivery from Bumrah, and just put his arms out in front of him to say that he couldn’t have done anything with that ball.

He had given a similar reaction after getting bowled against Bumrah in England’s first innings in the first Test in Hyderabad.

Exactly two overs later, Bumrah sent back Tom Hartley to complete his 10th five-wicket haul in Test cricket. It’s the second time Bumrah has managed to take five wickets against England in Test cricket.

The visitors were 234 for 9 after Hartley’s dismissal, still 167 runs behind India’s first innings score of 396 which they put up thanks to Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 209 on Day 2.

Jasprit Bumrah’s current average in 3 formats:

Test – 20.50.

But more than the Stokes dismissal, his searing yorker to castle England vice-captain Ollie Pope is being talked about on social media.

The entire cricketing fraternity was left in awe after watching Bumrah uproot Pope’s middle and leg-stump with the perfect delivery in the block-hole.
