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 has been off to a cracking start as the hosts are reduced to 0 for 1 after just 5 deliveries. An out of form Jasprit Bumrah has striked early for the visitors and it is definitely bad news for the England side as we all know what Bumrah is capable of doing on his best day. He picked up the important wicket of English opener Rory Joseph Burns on the 5th delivery of his very first over.

Having won the toss, England chose to bat first. A very wise decision indeed given the early hints by English pacer James Anderson that they will be going for a green top pitch as they have the home advantage. If so, it will be difficult for the Indian batsmen to face England’s deadly pace attack in the second innings and that is exactly what English captain Joe Root had in his mind.

What they didn’t expect for sure, however, was that they would lose a wicket in the very first over of the match. The umpire had given it an LBW straight away but Rory Burns had some doubts. After discussing it with his opening partner Dom Sibley, he decided to go upstairs to (took the DRS). As expected, the Ultra edge detected no bat and ball tracker gave convincing evidence of the fact that it’s the umpire’s call of hitting the stumps. A big blow to England indeed and that too in the early phases of the game. This dismissal will definitely add to the confidence of Jasprit Bumrah which he is in dire need of.
