ENG vs IND 2021: Twitter Erupts As Jasprit Bumrah Takes On Jos Buttler

Jos Buttler-Jasprit Bumrah

The second test match between England and India is underway at the Lord’s cricket ground in London. During England’s first innings, Jasprit Bumrah bowled a barrage of short-pitch deliveries to  James Anderson on day three. This time, the England pacers have decided to give it back to Bumrah.

Mark Wood started bowling fiery bouncers to Jasprit Bumrah. The two also engaged in a heated face-off. Bumrah was seen chatting with the umpires and Jos Buttler in the overs break.

The first ball of over, Mark Wood bowled another bouncer, this time Bumrah wildly swung his bat and slammed the ball for a four. The Indian dressing was up on their feet including the Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, animately applauding the boundary.

Meanwhile, the Indian team has crossed the 200 runs lead. The partnership between Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah has also crossed 50 runs. With England trying to restrict India to a low score, this last-wicket partnership between Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami will significantly impact their chances in this test.
