Cometh the hour, cometh Jasprit Bumrah! In the crucial T20 World Cup 2024 final, Bumrah once again showcased his extraordinary skills, dismissing Rezza Hendricks with an absolute peach of a delivery. In just the second over, Bumrah unleashed his magic. He bowled a full-length delivery that initially angled into the middle stump but then moved away late, catching Hendricks completely off guard.

Reeza Hendricks, attempting a front-foot push drive with a straight bat, played down the wrong line. The ball zipped past the outside edge and clattered into the top of the off stump. It was an unplayable delivery from the right-arm pacer, sending Hendricks back to the pavilion for just 4 runs off 5 balls. Hendricks could only nod in acknowledgement of the brilliant delivery as he walked back.

India set a competitive total of 177 runs, largely thanks to a resurgent knock from Virat Kohli. After struggling for form throughout the tournament, Kohli found his rhythm at the perfect time, scoring a commanding 76 runs. His innings was a mix of elegant stroke play and aggressive hitting, anchoring the Indian batting effort and giving them a solid platform to defend.

As the match progressed, Bumrah’s early strike was a reminder of why he is considered one of the best bowlers in the world. His ability to deliver under pressure and take crucial wickets in key moments has been instrumental in India’s journey to the final. With a strong total on the board and a formidable bowling attack led by Bumrah, India’s chances of lifting the T20 World Cup trophy looked promising.
