Watch: Bumrah’s magical in-swinger to dismiss Cummins
Indian right arm fast-bowler Jaspirt Bumrah had bowled a gem of an in-swing delivery to dismiss Australian player Pat Cummins on the day of 1st Test.
The first Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy that is played between India and Australia is well poised now as the hosts are also struggling to find the runs with the bat like the visitors.
India managed to put 250 runs in their first innings with the help of Cheteshwar Pujara’s 16th Test ton after a batting collapse in the top and middle order of the Indian batting line-up.
In reply, Australia are also experiencing the same problem since the Australian batsmen also found themselves in trouble on day 2 in Adelaide Oval. Travis Head is the only hope for the hosts at the moment as the left-hander registered a much needed fifty.
Travis Head had a fifty run partnership with Australian quick Pat Cummins and that partnership took Australia to recovery from 127/6 to 177/7. The partnership irritated the flow of wickets for the Indian bowlers.
India’s go through fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah managed to break the partnership straight away after taking the second new ball in the 81st over of Australian innings.
Bumrah bowled a huge inswinger at Cummins and the later didn’t offer any shot which caught his legs, apparently outside the line of the wicket. Umpire Nigel Llong gave the verdict in favor of India but Cummins went upstairs seeking a review.
The review showed the late and long inswinger was on its way to crashing onto the off stump and the on-ground umpire’s decision stayed. The pacer was back into the hut and Australia were 177 for 7.
