Jasprit Bumrah’s brutal fast bowling against England on the last day of the Oval test broke the back of English batting for India to get a win at the Oval. It also helped the Indian fast bowler to complete the big milestone of 100 test wickets.
England was 141/3 when Bumrah was brought on by Kohli for another short burst. The ball was reverse swinging well and Bumrah made use of it and his extra pace to first get through the defences of Ollie Pope with a ball that came in and breached the gap between bat and pad. With Pope’s wicket, Bumrah completed his 100 test wicket in his 24th test and thus became the fastest pace bowler from India to achieve the feat breaking Kapil Dev’s record doing it in 25 tests.
After Pope’s dismissal, Bumrah’s 101 wicket also came quickly as a brutal Yorker completely ripped through Bairstow’s defences to put England in disarray. It was pace bowling of the highest class by the Mumbai Indians and the Indian superstar.
India’s another fast bowling great Srinath got his 100th test wicket in his 30th test.
That spell from Bumrah completely derailed any winning chances that England had. The hosts were completely shot after that over as the other bowlers Umesh Yadav & Shardul Thakur got together to torment the English batters further.
However, Bumrah broke the back of the English batting with those two deliveries as India marched on to a famous win at the Oval,their first in 50 years after the historical 1971 test and series win, which was India’s very first test and series win in England under Ajit Wadekar’s captaincy.
India is now on the verge of a 4th series win in England as they lead the series 2-1 with one test to play
