Internet Desk: Whenever his team needs a wicket Jasprit Bumrah is always there to produce it in every format of the game. MS Dhoni called him the ‘find of the tour’ after a very successful Australia T20I series in which India whitewashed the hosts 3-0. Earlier,India struggled a lot to find a good death over bowler. Captain’s long search came to an end as Bumrah bowled well in the series.
This dream journey started when former Indian coach John Wright spotted him from Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and selected him for Mumbai Indians. His debut match in IPL was also very exciting as he took 3 wickets for 32 runs against the Royal Challengers Banglore. Virat Kohli was his first ever hunt in IPL.
He got some big names in his wicket tally right from the start of his International career as he picked Australian opener David Warner’s wicket. After some stunning shots Bumrah’s short of length delivery ended up Warner’s innings as Virat Kohli caught a simple catch in the mid on to depart the Aussie opener for 17 in his T20I debut.
Bumrah got his first ever ODI wicket by taking Steven Smith’s wicket. It was a very good short ball just outside off and around throat-high, Smith failed to read the delivery and looked to muscle it over mid-wicket but failed as he caught by Rohit Sharma while batting on 28.
In his debut Test match at the Newlands Cape Town today he continued his nack of getting big fish as he got the wicket of AB de Villiers after a full ball shattered AB de Villiers’s stumps. There was a hint of seam movement into AB, who was looking to pull off another audacious drive. This time, he could only get an inside edge onto the stumps. He scored 65 off 84 deliveries before getting out.
