Jasprit Bumrah Ruthless Spell: Demolishes Ollie Pope’s Stumps and Outsmarts Joe Root Again in 2nd Test

Jasprit Bumrah is bound to happen. He has often demonstrated his worth, and when the second Test of the series against England appeared to be going badly, the Indian pacer picked up the pace once more. Bumrah was hauled back after giving up 20 runs in his opening spell because the ball had become remarkably rough and magical.The Indian pacer defeated Joe Root in yet another match; in just 20 innings, he has now removed the legendary batsman from England eight times. He then produced what may have been the biggest shot of the series, hitting Ollie Pope in the middle and leg stumps, ending the English batsman’s innings at 23.

Following the drinks break in the second session of Day 2, England seemed set to make a significant score as they had only lost one wicket and amassed 114 runs. The Indian captain, Rohit Sharma, chose to put in Axar Patel to end the partnership. The left-arm orthodox spinner made an almost instant impact, bowling out the dangerous Zak Crawley on 76. Joe Root came at number four, and Rohit did not waste any time in sending in Bumrah. The Indian pacer was well in the lead going into Visakhapatnam. After finding a hint of reverse, Bumrah kept up the pressure on Root’s edge, using a variety of away swingers to keep Joe Root off-balance.

In his second over of the spell, Bumrah bowled a deceptive line that tilted straighter than expected, putting pressure on the English batsman gradually but masterfully. Root was unprepared for the ball’s sudden veer away since he was expecting it to come inward. Shubman Gill gladly accepted the little edge at first slip, thereby ending Root’s career. India took advantage of the dismissal to put even more pressure on England, and Bumrah, in form, spent no deliveries in introducing Jonny Bairstow, the next batter, with a menacing yorker. Nevertheless, Ollie Pope was unable to withstand the delivery, while the England wicketkeeper-batter did.

In the following over of the period, Jasprit Bumrah produced an unbelievable yorker that astounded both analysts and fans. Pope was completely bewildered as he was thoroughly defeated by Bumrah’s yorker, even though he faced 55 deliveries with little difficulty. The ball swung fast and hard into the batter’s stumps, smashing them as Bumrah’s perfect delivery gave them no chance of escape. The victim, who had shown incredible fortitude in the previous Test with a score of 196, was left vulnerable to Bumrah’s deadly yorker. England lost three wickets in a span of twenty-two runs during Bumrah’s final over of his second spell. India had earlier scored 396 runs, with Yashasvi Jaiswal scoring more than half of the runs (209) and Shubman Gill scoring the next-highest score of 34. The visitors were now trailing by 241 runs thanks to Tea.

T20 World Cup 2024: Team India’s First Group Arrives in New York

The principal cluster of Indian players, including skipper Rohit Sharma and lead trainer Rahul Dravid, among others, landed in New York. BCCI’s true online entertainment handle shared a video of the equivalent.

Any semblance of Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and the training staff loaded onto the trip toward the West on Saturday. Rohit, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Gasp, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, and voyaging holds Shubman Gill and Khaleel Ahmed arrived today.

All groups highlighting the players from India’s 15-man World Cup crew were taken out of the Indian Head Association (IPL) 2024 preceding the last.

Prior, a video did the rounds via web-based entertainment in which the stars of the Indian cricket crew should have been visible showing up at the Mumbai air terminal.

As announced by CricketNext, Virat Kohli still can’t seem to take the trip to New York for the 2024 T20 World Cup. The star India hitter will probably interface with the crew before the main warm-up apparatus versus Bangladesh on June 1. It is perceived that he will fly towards the month’s end.

“He will arrive in New York before the warm-up versus Bangladesh on June 1. Regardless of whether he plays in the warm-up, it will be the board’s call—whether they feel there is a sufficient hole between his landing and the warm-up installation,” says a source near improvements.

The second group of players left earlier today, and Sanju Samson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan, and Yashasvi Jaiswal will join the crew soon. Both Sanju and Avesh shared the report on their particular Instagram stories.

Hardik Pandya Vacations Amid Natasa Stankovic Divorce Rumors, Set to Join India T20 WC Squad in New York

More than just Virat Kohli, there were others who did not board the Saturday flight from Mumbai to New York for the T20 World Cup, where Rohit Sharma was leading along with some Indian players and coaching staff, beginning on June 1 in the USA and the West Indies. Hardik Pandya, the captain of Mumbai Indians, had a terrible IPL season, performing poorly as both a leader and player, and was also missing.

As per a report in Cricbuzz on Sunday, Hardik, who is dealing with personal struggles amid rumors of splitting with wife Natasa Stankovic, is presently holidaying in a secret location abroad. After Mumbai’s disappointing IPL season ended with a second last-place finish in three years, he left the country. The report also mentioned that the all-rounder, who will assist Rohit in the upcoming ICC tournament, will go straight to New York to join the Indian team for the T20 World Cup.

Though the precise time of Hardik’s flight to New York is unknown, the source states that he would arrive in time for India’s first practise.

As for the other players, they will depart for New York later, including Rinku Singh of the Kolkata Knight Riders, who played in Sunday’s IPL final, and Sanju Samson of the Rajasthan Royals, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Avesh Khan, who all participated in the Qualifier 2 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on May 25 in Chennai.

After leaving on Saturday night, the remaining team members—Rohit, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and replacements Shubman Gill and Khaleel Ahmed—arrived in New York on Sunday night.

As per a report published on Sunday, Kohli did not travel with the team since he requested an extension of his leave from the BCCI following Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s elimination in the IPL 2024 Eliminator match last week. On the other hand, the former captain of India won the Orange Cap after making 741 runs at a strike rate exceeding 154 and an average of 61.75 in 15 matches. There are 105 fifty runs in the run total. He was the leading run scorer in an IPL season for the second time with this win. His record-breaking 973 runs in 2016 allowed him to win the trophy for the first time.

Gautam Gambhir’s Post-IPL Final Chat with Jay Shah Fuels India Head Coach Speculation

Gautam Gambhir’s Post-IPL Final Chat with Jay Shah Fuels India Head Coach Speculation

After leading his team to an IPL trophy victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday night at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Gautam Gambhir, the coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders, was elated. Along with celebrating with every KKR player, he also obliged with pictures, demonstrating his busy schedule. Amid the festivities, he had time to greet BCCI secretary Jay Shah, who was in attendance at the IPL final. They later had a long conversation, which raised rumors that he would be appointed England head coach.

As the frontrunner to succeed Rahul Dravid as head coach, Gambhir has surfaced. The 2024 T20 World Cup in June will mark the end of the legend of India. BCCI invited candidates to take Dravid’s place for the prestigious job, as he was unwilling to reapply. The agreement will remain in effect until the conclusion of the ODI World Cup in 2027.

During BCCI’s search, two Australian icons—Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer—were mentioned as potential candidates for the India head coach post. However, both men declined to apply. The board wants an Indian to take up the role since he is more accustomed to and knowledgeable about domestic cricket action than a foreign coach would be. Shah also explained that the BCCI never approached the two for the position. If Shah’s hinting at Gambhir’s preference for the position wasn’t enough, his actions on Sunday, when he saw the World Cup winner in 2011, congratulated him, took pictures, and had a long conversation with him outside of KKR’s celebration in Chennai, certainly did.

As per the news that appeared in Dainik Jagran on Saturday, Gambhir has not yet submitted his application to become India’s head coach. He is keen on replacing Virat Kohli. After the IPL final, he might have a meeting with some BCCI executives in Chennai. But BCCI will publicly announce him as Dravid’s replacement as soon as he does. Because the story also states that Gambhir must speak with Shah Rukh Khan, KKR’s co-owner, before applying for the position, Gambhir finds himself in a bit of a pickle. Before the IPL 2024 season officially began, the Bollywood actor was instrumental in persuading Gambhir to rejoin KKR as the team’s mentor from the Lucknow Super Giants. He also encouraged Gambhir to lead the team for ten years, offering him a blank check with the stipulation that he would pay any amount he chose.
