Bumrah Shines in Spectacular Comeback: Twitter Celebrates His Amazing Performance against Ireland
When fast bowlers get injured, it’s often tough for them to bounce back. But Jasprit Bumrah proved everyone wrong. He was back in action after a year of dealing with a back injury, and he wowed everyone by taking two wickets in his very first over.
In a T20 match between India and Ireland in Malahide, Bumrah led the Indian team. People had doubts about him because of his unique bowling style that made him prone to injuries. But he surprised everyone by starting strong. In his first over with the new ball, he got two important wickets. One of them was a fantastic inswinger that knocked down the stumps of Andy Balbirnie.
At first, Bumrah’s delivery went towards the batter’s legs, and he managed to hit it for four runs. But then, Bumrah came back strong. He bowled the ball in a way that made Balbirnie try to hit it, but the ball swung in and hit the edge of the bat, breaking the stumps. Just a couple of balls later, Bumrah did his signature move – an inswinging yorker – and this left Lorcan Tucker in shock as the crowd went wild. Bumrah’s excellent over ended with Tucker’s attempt at a tricky shot going wrong, and Sanju Samson caught the ball behind the stumps.
Bumrah’s first match as a T20 captain couldn’t have been better. His amazing performance spread like wildfire on social media.
