Bumrah takes his first Test wicket in India

Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best bowlers in the world right now. He is an integral part of the Indian cricket team in the last 5 years. He made his ODI debut in 2016 and also made his Test debut in the same year. He took the limited-overs format by storm by taking important wickets in crunch situations.

The manner in which he is consistently adding new ammo to his arsenal makes him a class apart and cut above the rest of the bowlers in the team. He is someone who can bowl inch-perfect yorkers and can easily outsmart the batsmen, especially in the death overs.

Bumrah is often tagged as a death overs specialist for his enough experience to turn things around in favour of the team. The Gujarat pacer who had already made a case for himself in limited-overs is gradually making a mark in Test cricket as well.

The pacer took the Test cricket by storm when he became the first Indian bowler to take most wickets in overseas Test matches. He showcased his mettle in the recently-concluded Border Gavaskar Trophy Test series against Australia.

The 27-year-old pacer represented the team in 3 matches where he played six innings. He took 11 wickets to his name. However, he couldn’t play the final Test match at the Gabba due to an injury. But, he has recovered from the injury to take part in the upcoming home assignment against England.

Bumrah takes maiden Test wicket in Indian soil

Bumrah made his Test debut in 2018. Since then he has taken as many as 79 wickets to his name. During the first Test match between India and England, Bumrah showcased his mettle as he got rid of Daniel Lawrence for an LBW and which was his first Test wicket in Indian soil.

After India reduced England to 63/2, Joe Root and Dominic Sibley took the game away from the Indians. The duo added a vital 200-run partnership for the third wicket. Root scored a magnificent 128 with the help of 14 fours and a six.

On the other hand, Sibley got out after making a well-made 87. Bumrah once again showcased his mettle by taking his wicket as England ended Day 1 with 263/3.
