Jasprit Bumrah, who is without doubt one of the wonderful exponents of the yorker in world cricket, exhibited his command on it but once more on Saturday because the 30-year-old seamer produced a supply for the gallery to depart Ollie Pope inconsolably crestfallen on day 2 of the continued 2nd Test between India and England at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam.
Watch the video of Jasprit Bumrah’s deadly yorker to Ollie Pope:
The occasion unfolded on the penultimate supply of the twenty eighth over and the 4 deliveries that preceded Pope’s undoing did not give him any clue about what was to transpire.
The over began with Bumrah delivering a very good size ball and adopted it up with a pitched-up ball. The third ball of the over was a slower one and was safely negotiated by the batter. The subsequent one turned out to be a brief ball and Pope flicked it for a pair that he was going to remorse in hindsight.
Pope got here again on strike after finishing the 2 runs on provide solely to satisfy a telling blow. His dismissal highlights the category of Bumrah as he did not give something away to the batter and caught him fully off guard.
The wicket-taking supply tailed again many a mile and uprooted the center and leg pole of Pope earlier than his bat got here down.
Notably, Pope had obtained his eyes in and was wanting set for an enormous one. He had struck two fours and was batting on 23 off 54 balls. However, Bumrah’s supply reverse-swung within the air to penetrate Pope’s inflexible defence and was ok to even break into the agency defence of any batter batting on 100 or extra.
Pope was left gobsmacked by the jaffa and trudged away to the customer’s dressing room after he realised what had hit him.
