Team India is currently locking horns with Bangladesh in the final of the ongoing Asia Cup. However, the 49th over of the match bowled by Jasprit Bumrah turned out to be the final over of Bangladesh’s innings as they lost two wickets in the first three balls of the over, first by the brilliant run-out by MS Dhoni and the second one was the result of the bulls-eye yorker from Bumrah.
Earlier in the day, Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field first as he was confident of chasing as India has been throughout the tournament. Bangladesh got off to an exuberant start after losing the toss, thanks to Liton Das and Mehidy Hasan, who made a solid opening partnership of 120 runs. However, they were bundled out for a small total of 222 in 48.3 overs.
On the first ball of the penultimate over of the first innings, Soumya Sarkar attempted an enthusiastic second run after chipping the short ball towards long-on only to be found short by a bullet throw from Ambati Rayudu. The second run was there but Sarkar wasn’t confident about it if you go by how they completed the first. Rayudu fires it flat to the striker’s end and Dhoni is there to catch him about an inch short.
However, Dhoni’s brilliance was also there in the dismissal as he didn’t gave an idea to the batsman that the ball was coming towards that end and Sarkar thought that Rayudu will throw towards the bowler’s end. On the third ball of the over, It was the brilliance of the Bumrah which pulled the curtains to Bangladesh’s innings.
The Indian pacer executed the yorker with perfection while bowling to Rubel Hossain and found the crease first followed by the leg stump. The No. 11 batsman couldn’t have the idea that the ball will be coming at such pace to him as the pacer also bowled a heavy ball.
