The Test series between India and Australia has fans all over the world hooked to the matches as every day takes a dramatic turn. The modern-day rivals are currently locking horns for the third Test in Sydney. India made a strong comeback on day 2 after a solid stand between Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne. A moment that stood out was one where ace Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah put up a bowling masterclass as he dismissed Australian captain Tim Paine with a peach of a delivery.
Bumrah has been regarded as one of the best all-format bowlers in the world. He proved just why as he attacked the Australian batsmen on Friday. He cleaned up Cameron Green for a 21-ball duck which prompted the umpires to call for lunch. During the second session, he dismissed Tim Paine with an amazing delivery.
Jasprit Bumrah set up Tim Paine brilliantly by bowling four good length deliveries outside off stump before pitching one up and bringing it back to set the bails fly. Paine, who was rooted to the crease, was clearly late in bringing his bat down. Bumrah’s delivery set Twitter on fire.
Twitter goes berserk for ‘Boom Boom Bumrah’
The Twitterati fired up as messages poured in after Jasprit Bumrah’s dismissal of Tim Paine. Here is what people had to say:
Bumrah had a fantastic spell with second new ball. He bowled 7 overs for 13 runs picking up important wickets of Green and Paine. The third Test will play a crucial role as the four-match series is at a stalemate of 1-1.
