Jasprit Bumrah has been sorely missed by the Indian team in recent games as the pacer was ruled out by injury, but on his return in the second T20I against Australia at Nagpur on Friday, Bumrah reminded fans of his true class.
The 28-year-old claimed Australian skipper Aaron Finch’s wicket by bowling a pin-point yorker and even the batsman himself acknowledged Bumrah’s effort by applauding after his dismissal.
As soon as Bumrah contained Finch’s stumps, the veteran was seen walking away toward the dugout, but not before applauding Bumrah’s accurate Yorker.

“If I come back after a few months, the back injury could be tricky. I’m not going to talk too much about how he bowled. We got the crucial wicket for us. As a team, we’re not going to analyze too much. I just want him to come and enjoy,” he said.
India won the match by six wickets while Rohit went unbeaten at 46, leaving his side chasing the required goal of 91 runs.
