The premier Indian fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah is considered by many the best all-format fast bowler in the current scenario and he has shown why he got the label during India’s opening ODI of the three-match series against England on Tuesday. Under overcast conditions at the Oval, Bumrah started his spell with a double maiden wicket over to send the hosts in disarray.

Team India got off to a dream start against England in the First ODI on Tuesday. After Rohit Sharma won the toss and asked Jos Buttler and his men to bat first, the Indian fast bowling attack, featuring Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, took three wickets inside the opening three overs. As a result, England was reduced to 7/3 in 2.4 overs.

Out of three dismissals, two came in the second over, bowled by none other than,  Jasprit Bumrah. The 28-year-old Indian fast bowler could not have a better possible start to begin things in the new series. His fourth ball was full and pitched outside off stump which Roy tried to drive, only to get a thick inside edge and shattered the stumps. 

Then, Bumrah outfoxed Joe Root with a shortish delivery outside off stump. The former England Test skipper tried to play towards the third man to get off the mark, only to find a nick before Rishabh Pant grabbed a simple catch.
