Just like the five-time champions Mumbai Indians’ struggles this season, Jasprit Bumrah has had his fair share of struggle too in this season of IPL so far. But in the match against the Kolkata Knight Riders, Bumrah was on fire as he bagged an incredible 5 wickets and conceded 10 runs with 3-wicket maiden over.
This was Bumrah’s first ever five-wicket haul in IPL. After his performance, MI were able to restrict KKR for 165 runs in the 20 overs. He started picking wickets of first Andre Russell and Nitish Rana. In his third over, he sent back Pat Cummins, Sheldon Jackson and Sunil Narine to complete this feat.
And how did the fast bowler celebrate his performance? He punched in the air to yell out his frustration of not doing well in the last 10 matches. Before this match against KKR, he had taken only 5 wickets.
