India and Australia are locking horns with each other in the second game of the three-match series at the VCA stadium in Nagpur. India’s premier pacer, Jasprit Bumrah, who is making a comeback to competitive cricket after a couple of months due to an injury layoff cleaned up the Australian skipper, Aaron Finch with a searing yorker.
Earlier in the game, the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first in the shortened game of 8 overs due to the wet outfield. Both the teams made a couple of changes as for the hosts Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant replaced Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, while the Aussies replaced Nathan Ellis and Josh Inglis with Daniel Sams with Sean Abbott respectively.

The incident took place in the fifth over of Australia’s innings in Nagpur when Bumrah, although had failed to nail that perfect yorker, had managed that low full toss delivery to beat the batter and rattle the leg stump. Finch was the danger man for India as he had already clobbered four boundaries and a six in his 15-ball 31 for Australia.
However, Bumrah had managed to dismiss Aaron Finch which was his first wicket since coming back from the injury that had ruled him out of the Asia Cup. But more than the dismissal, it was Finch’s act that stood out as he had applauded the India pacer for his deadly yorker in his comeback game.
Here is the video of the dismissal of Aaron Finch:
