Team India pacer Jasprit Bumrah unleashed a searing yorker to dismiss Glenn Maxwell in the third and final ODI against Australia on Wednesday, September 27 at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. The dismissal pegged Australia back in the innings, however, they still ended up with 352 runs on the board.
The visitors were going great guns in the match with a 137-run stand for the second wicket. However, quick wickets pushed them back. In the thirty-ninth over, Jasprit Bumrah bowled a series of slower deliveries. However, he brought a change in the pace of the final delivery.
The pacer bowled an inch-perfect yorker at 142.3kph to Glenn Maxwell. The ball tailed back in late and went under Maxwell’s bat to knock off the base of the off-stump. Bumrah was not having a great game until then, but made a good comeback with Maxwell’s dismissal, who had to walk back for five runs from seven deliveries.
