The first ODI match between England and India was an unexpected one. The entire England team was seen languishing for runs and wickets that kept on falling. The England team was all out for 110 runs in just 25.1 overs and were utterly disappointed.
All credits for this goes to the star pacer, Jasprit Bumrah, and his teammate, Mohammed Shami who took 6 and 3 wickets respectively. We’ll say something to your astonishment about Bumrah in the match.
- The first wicket for Bumrah came in the form Jason Roy (0 off 5)
- The second wicket for Bumrah came in the forms of the world class Joe Root (0 off 2)
- The third wicket for Bumrah came in the form of Jonny Bairstow (7 off 20)
- The fourth in line for Bumrah was the big hitter Liam Livingstone (0 off 8)
- The fifth wicket for Bumrah came grabbing the wicket of the tailender Brydon Carse through a beautiful yorker (15 off 26)
- And then not least David Wiley going out for (21 off 26)
The entire England team seemed to struggle with the bat but truth be told, the sharp line and length along with the swings that the pacers were enjoying helped the Indian team take a big leap against England.
So, overall, it was Bumrahhhh Bumrahhhh!! With a big share of cake, just for himself.
In the press conference when asked Bumrah, about his performance in the game, look at what he has to say on it,
“See, it was a good day and then you get applauded. But I am the type of person who does not get carried away by applause and criticism. Today was a good day, but I do not think about where I am at in each format, I always focus on trying to do what I can do. Very grateful for the applause you get, but I always try to keep a stable head,”
In applauding the player for this innings came out the master blaster himself Sachin Tendulkar and the former cricketer, Nasser Hussain, who were seen sitting in the commentary room.
Jasprit Bumrah becomes the first Indian pacer to take 6 wickets in England in an ODI match.@Jaspritbumrah93 #milestonealert #recordalert #Jaspritbumrah #ODI #India #TeamIndia #IndianCricketTeam #cricmazza #INDvsENG #ENGvIND #jasprit pic.twitter.com/LwWE2O4Mle— Cricmazza (@cric_mazza) July 12, 2022
Coming back to Jasprit again, in his statement made further he seemed evenly fed-up using words like Outside noise and stuff which was quite similar to what the skipper Rohit Sharma spoke about. Look at what Bumrah said further,
“I always like to stay in the present, these days there is outside noise, too many opinions. There can be confusion that can get created, so I try to focus on my own evaluation and my preparation. If I tick all the boxes, what I can do, I do that and I accept the result that comes after. I try to remain consistent and that gives me stability,”
Jasprit Bumrah’s performance in real sense was sort of a tight slap to all the outside noise going on against him and his teammates such as Kohli, and Rohit. Infact, Rohit Sharma scored a beautiful 76 off 58 deliveries,with help of seven 4s and five 6s.
To conclude, Rohit Sharma has been declared the Player of the Match for his stunning 6 wickets innings.
