HIGHLIGHTS

  • Jasprit Bumrah won the Player of the Match award in the first ODI
  • Jasprit Bumrah picked up six wickets for 19 runs
  • India beat England by 10 wickets in the first ODI of the series

Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah reckoned that bowlers don’t need to try hard to pick wickets when there is swing and seam on offer. On Tuesday, July 12, the lanky speedster picked up a six-wicket haul and helped the Men in Blue win the first ODI against England by 10 wickets at the Kennington Oval in London.

Moreover, with the win under their belt, India also took a crucial 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Bumrah picked up six wickets for 19 runs and registered the third best figures by an Indian bowler in ODIs after Stuart Binny and the legendary Anil Kumble.

“When there is swing to offer and seam movement, it is exciting times for white-ball cricket. Very happy when there was some help for us in the beginning. When I bowled the first ball, I saw some swing… If there is no swing, you pull your length back. When the ball is doing something, you don’t have to try too much. But when the wicket is flat, your accuracy is tested,” Bumrah was quoted as saying.

Bumrah also heaped praise on Mohammed Shami and said that the latter has the potential to run through the best of batting lineups.

“As soon as he [Shami] bowled the first over, we felt he can go fuller since there was some help. He had a discussion with me that we should go fuller. Very happy for him, but when he beats the bat, I told him there will be a day when he runs through sides! When the bowling is moving around, the slip cordon and keeper are very active. Very happy for Pant [for his catches]!” he added.

Shami also did his bit in the game as he picked up three wickets, including that of Jos Buttler, who top-scored for England.

The second ODI is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 14 at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground.
