HIGHLIGHTS

  • India dominated majority of the English batting
  • Bumrah took three wickets in the first innings
  • England scored 284 in reply to India’s 416

Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah created yet another record after hitting the highest runs in a single over in Test cricket in the fifth Test match between India and England being played at Edgbaston. Bumrah made the second day of the Test match his own, first, by hitting 35 runs off a single over of Stuart Broad, which broke Brian Lara’s record of highest runs in an over and then returning with the ball and taking three wickets to keep England reeling under pressure.

Bumrah’s exploits against England in the home side’s first innings, made him the highest wicket-taker in a series against England, away from home for India, with 21 wickets to his name. He surpassed Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s tally of 19 wickets in the 2014 series.

Bumrah has been brilliant throughout the tour, which originally started in 2021. He consistently troubled the England top order batters Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed. Bumrah’s exploits essentially began the conversation about the fragile English top order, which was later changed. However, the new opening pair of Alex Lees and Zack Crawley did not do well at all. Bumrah first went through the defences of Lees and then later forced Crawley into inducing an edge to the slip cordon.

India are on top after taking a sizable lead against England in the first innings, and have fared well at the end of the third day of the game, adding 125 runs to their lead. England are now looking at a mammoth total in the final innings of the game, which should be difficult for them to chase down against India’s bowling line-up.
