Jasprit Bumrah: A wicket in every spell

Bumrah came to bowl the third over in the tie that was largely in Pakistan’s grasp after Babar Azam and co bowled India out of 119. Needing 120 runs at run-a-ball, Pakistan openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were cruising.

However, Bumrah removed Babar in his first spell, got the better of Rizwan who was looking set in his second. He then came back in his third spell to send Iftikhar Ahmed back to the pavillion and tilted the tie in India’s favour.
