The three-match ODI series between India and England kicked off in The Kennington Oval, on Tuesday. With great form, the Indian Squad looked fierce in all aspects including batting, bowling, and fielding. Indian bowlers took charge from the start as Indian skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Even by the time England had already been relayed by ten wickets in 44 overs – of course, this is 50 overs a side, although the entire match seemed to last just hardly any longer than that of the three T20Is that preceded it – Bumrah had accumulated the astounding figures of 6/19, surpassing Ashish Nehra’s 6/23 against England in the 2003 World Cup.
Jasprit Bumrah was on the money during the first ODI against England as he didn’t give a chance to the English batting order. Jason Roy was Bumrah’s first wicket of the day and he got the crucial wicket of Joe Root in the same over. The Indian pacer also sent the dangerous Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone back to the pavilion and ended the day with an impressive six-wicket haul in 7.2 overs while conceding just 19 runs.
Jasprit Bumrah had a phenomenal outing at the Oval, and his wife, who is also a talk show host Sanjana Ganesan also made fun of the English batters. Ganesan happened to come across a food stall called the ‘Crispy Duck’ while doing a feature on the food stalls just outside of the stadium, and ended up going on to troll the English batters.
Bumrah manage to send back four batters in the English innings without scoring a run to which Ganesan said, “We’ve come to a stall that not a lot of English batters would like to come to. It’s called the ‘Crispy Duck’. We’ve got a duck wrap is, and we will see how good the duck off-the-field is. Because the ducks on the field have been absolutely fantastic.”
