Ace Indian speedster Jasprit Bumrah had a decent outing with the ball against Namibia on Monday during the ongoing 2021 ICC T20 World Cup. He bowled an economical spell of four while picking up the important wickets of Michael van Lingen and David Wiese.

However, the 27-year-old indulged in a comical incident in the penultimate over of his own bowling in the first innings. Bumrah bowled a fiery yorker to Namibia all-rounder Jan Frylinck, who managed to dig it out with a drive. The ball went straight back to the Indian bowler who picked it up with one hand. Meanwhile, Frylinck had started off on a run and was miles out of the crease as Bumrah targeted at the stumps to run him out.

The Namibian batter, by this point, had given up but the Indian pacer’s throw was not on-point as he missed his aim by the narrowest of margins. This allowed Frylinck to get back to the crease.

The Virat Kohli’s men also ended their campaign at the ongoing ICC tournament with a clinical victory of nine wickets. Batting first, Namibia posted a below-par total of 132/8 on the board at the end of their quota of 20 overs. In reply, the ‘Men in Blue’ chased down the target in 15.2 overs with the help of brilliant half-centuries from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul.

With this, India finished at the third spot in Group 2, preceded by Pakistan and New Zealand respectively. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also won his second consecutive ‘Player of the Match’ award after recording an outstanding spell of 3/16 in four overs.
