“Spell reads like a tennis score: 6-3-6-2.”: Jasprit Bumrah earns plaudits for devastating spell; becomes fastest Indian pacer to reach 100 Test wickets


Jasprit Bumrah on Monday bowled a devastating spell in the Oval Test as he paved the way for an Indian win against England. His unplayable yorker that destroyed the stumps of Ollie Pope, in particular, became a topic of intense conversations on Twitter.

England needed to score 368 runs to win the fourth Test as Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed started day 5 of the match. The hosts were 77-0 at the end of the fourth day’s play.

However, thanks to impressive bowling by the Indian pacers, England found the going tough against India as they faced a spectacular batting collapse. Bumrah was responsible for knocking the stumps of Pope and Jonny Bairstow with his fast bowling, thereby ensuring that England were knocked out of the contention in the Oval Test.

As expected, netizens began to shower praises on Bumrah, who became the fastest Indian fast bowler to reach 100 wickets in Test matches.

India would take a 2-1 lead in the ongoing series with a victory at the Oval cricket ground.
