Jasprit Bumrah ends England’s innings with a yorker: The much anticipated test series between India and England has started and the arch-rivals are currently squaring off at Trent Bridge in the first match. The first test was off to a cracking start as the hosts were reduced to 0 for 1 after just 5 deliveries. After that, however, England were able to regain momentum thanks to a much-needed responsible partnership between Zak Crawley and Dom Sibley.

Having won the toss, England chose to bat first and it seemed to be the right decision at that time. But little did they know that India’s pacers were waiting to flourish their skills and dismantle them completely. Coming on to bat first, England were off to a horrible start as opener Rory Burns lost his wicket in the very first over courtesy of Jasprit Bumrah’sindividual brilliance.
The Englishmen seemed to have regained momentum post that but it was only for a fraction of a moment as Mohammad Siraj dismissed in-form Zak Crawley shortly after. It was all Mohammad Shami’s show after that. The pacer went on to take 3 big wickets that totally unnerved England’s batting order. He picked up the wickets of in-form batsmen Dom Sibley, Dan Lawrence and Jonny Bairstow.

However, it was Jasprit Bumrah who became India’s highest wicket taker in the first innings. The pacer dismissed tailenders Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson to increase his tally to 4 wickets. The delivery that dismissed Jimmy Anderson and ended England’s innings is particularly being praised a lot as he completely beat the batsman to pick the off-stump with a deadly yorker.
