IND vs ENG: After going wicketless in the WTC final, Jasprit Bumrah returned back to from by dismissing Rory Burns off the first ball in the very first over to give India an early breakthrough at Trent Bridge. Bumrah bowled three outswingers & then followed it up with quick incoming delivery to caught Rory Burns in front of the stumps.
Rory Burns went for a review but it ended up as an umpire’s call & that confirmed an early wicket for India.

In today’s match, Jasprit Bumrah is bowling a full-length delivery which has helped him to regain his form.
