ENG IND 2021 Watch: Jasprit Bumrah Castles Ollie Pope & Jonny Bairstow In Quick Succession On Day 5

Jasprit Bumrah 100 wickets

India struck twice in quick succession post-lunch to inchi closer to winning the fourth Test at The Oval. First Ravindra Jadeja bowled Haseeb Hameed who played a defiant knock 63. Soon after Jasprit Bumrah castled Ollie Pope to give India an advantage on the final day. India thus took four wickets after England ended 77 overnight chasing 368 to win.

The ball that dismissed Pope, came back after pitching and the right-hander played down the wrong line. This wicket has really given Indian an opening into dismissing the England middle-order quickly with skipper Joe Root being their only hope.

From 77 for no loss to 140 -odd for four, The hosts have lost four wickets for seventy runs. England need to chase a record fourth-innings total at The Oval to take a lead in the Test match.

Soon after he dismissed Pope, Bumrah came back to dismiss Jonny Bairstow in his very next over. England slumbered further with the wicket of Bairstow which was Bumrah’s 101st in Test cricket.

India came back strongly on the final day after the England openers kept the visitors at bay with a 77-run opening stand. All that hard work was undone after Shardul Thakur took the first wicket of Rory Burns.
