Jasprit Bumrah Stuns Keaton Jennings & Cricket World With The Ball That Swung 3.77 Degrees — Watch

Jasprit Bumrah is full of surprises

Former West Indies fast bowler Michael Holdings feels that Jasprit Bumrah is not a new ball bowler. But it seems like Bumrah is adamant in proving him wrong. Being able to swing the ball is a must-have trait for an opening bowler. The 24-year-old did that when he opened the bowling on the fourth Test as well and stunned the world with a beautiful inswinger to take opener Keaton Jennings’ wicket.

Bumrah tactically set up Jennings by bowling two outswingers followed by one sharp inswinger to catch him off-guard. The left-handed opener was bamboozled by the delivery as he could not even offer a shot. All he did was awkwardly get struck on the pads, plumb in front of the stumps.

The ball swung a massive 3.77 degrees. The 26-year-old has scored just 94 runs in 7 innings but the booming inswinger from Bumrah was almost unplayable for him.

Here’s the video of the dismissal:

There were mixed reactions on Twitter as few lambasted the opener while others just praised it as a peach of a delivery from Bumrah:

The 24-year-old fast bowler could have had the perfect first session on Day 1 of the fourth Test but he got skipper Joe Root’s wicket off a no ball. Despite being in good form, bowling no balls seems to be a norm for him.
