Bazball meets its match in the ‘magic’ of Bumrah

Bazball meets its match in the ‘magic’ of Bumrah

[ad_1] NEW DELHI : England came prepared for the usual trial by spin that greets touring sides in India but a “magical” seam-bowling masterclass by Jasprit Bumrah in Visakhapatnam saw their hopes of victory in the second test vanish into thin air. To deal with the expected conditions, England picked spin-heavy attacks complemented by a lone fast bowler both in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam. The frequency with which their batters played the sweep shots also indicated their resolve to conquer the spin challenge. And after their spinners accounted for 18 of India’s 20 wickets en route to winning the first test, the tourists would have been anticipating another spin-fest in Visakhapatnam. What they probably did not expect is that Bumrah would emerge as their main threat despite having hardly any assistance from the pitches so far in the series. Armed with an unorthodox sling-shot action and a reversing ball, Bumrah went wide off the crease to create angles and operated with pinpoint accuracy to torment the batters. His 9-91 on a spin-friendly track saw him named …

Bumrah takes six as India are set 79 for victory in second S.Africa test

Bumrah takes six as India are set 79 for victory in second S.Africa test

[ad_1] CAPE TOWN : India seamer Jasprit Bumrah took 6-61 as the tourists bowled South Africa out in their second innings for 176 on the stroke of lunch on the second day of the second and final test at Newlands on Thursday and face a victory target of 79. Bumrah bowled a superb probing line but also profited from poor shot selection by the home batters, who seemed in a hurry to score runs on a difficult wicket. South Africa opener Aiden Markram blasted a quick-fire 106 from 103 balls as he defied the conditions but lost partners at regular intervals, which forced him to launch a blistering assault with the bat. India will have plenty of belief they can level the series at 1-1 but having bowled South Africa out for 55 in the first innings of the match they will also be wary of getting through the new ball relatively unscathed. After South Africa resumed their innings on 62 for three, David Bedingham was Bumrah’s first victim in the opening over of the …
