Jasprit Bumrah registers 3rd best bowling figures by an Indian bowler in ODIs
Jasprit Bumrah was the hero with the ball for the Indian team. Bumrah picked 6 crucial wickets in the first ODI against England. He shattered the top order of England. Mohammed Shami too picked 3 wickets in the first ODI. As a result, England was restricted to a total of 110 runs against a strong Indian bowling attack.
The Team India pacer in the post-match presentation said, “When I bowled the first ball, I found some swing and we tried to exploit that. When it doesn’t swing, I have to pull my lengths back. When the ball is doing something you don’t have to try a lot. When the wicket is flat your accuracy is tested. It is a good place to be when the ball is swinging.”
