new Delhi: The first Test match between India and England started at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai from Friday. On the first day, England’s condition was better and they have scored 263 runs losing three wickets. Joe Root remained on the field for England and scored 128 runs by the end of the first day’s play. He was supported by Dom Sibley. When both the players started attacking the Indian bowlers, India needed a big wicket and by the end of the match on the first day, there was a great deal.
This was done by Jasprit Bumrah, Yorker Specialist of India. Bumrah bowled the third ball of the 90th over so that Sibley lost his senses. Bumrah threw the yorker at Sibley’s feet, which became difficult to handle. The ball was directly on the stump, so the umpire did not have any problem in calling it out without taking time off. Although Sibley was not satisfied with the umpire’s decision and took the review, it was clear in the review that Ball was directly on the stumps.
England did not have a good start. Two wickets were dismissed for 63 runs. The first victim was opener Joe Burns, whom Ashwin got caught by Rishabh Pant. Burns was dismissed for the fifth ball of the 24th over. At this time England’s score was 63 runs. After this, Bumrah bowled such a dangerous ball on the fourth ball of the 26th over that everyone was left watching. Bumrah sent batsman Dan Lawrence on the inswing ball without opening the account. Lawrence could not understand the ball coming inside the wicket of Bumrah and the ball went straight to the pad. The umpire dismissed him without delay.
Bumrah never played Test at home before. He now holds the record for playing at home after playing most Tests abroad. Earlier this record was named after another fast bowler Javagal Srinath, who has played 12 Tests abroad since his debut and then got a chance to play at home.
Rudra Pratap Singh (11), Sachin Tendulkar (10) and Ashish Nehra (10) are also named in this sequence. Talking about Bumrah, he made his debut against South Africa on 5 January 2018 in Newlands. He was part of Australia’s tour of India last month.
He played in the Sydney Test but could not play in the Brisbane Test due to injury. Bumrah has taken a total of 79 wickets in 17 Test matches so far at an average of 21.59. He has taken five wickets in innings on five occasions and 6-27 in an innings has been his best bowling analysis so far.
