The second Test between India and England is getting heated up with words being exchanged between both team's players. The Test has panned out perfectly and is up for grabs for both teams on the final day. As both teams are trying hard to take control of the game, the pressure has started taking a toll on players.
In the first session of Day 5, some words were exchanged between Bumrah and Mark Wood and later with Jos Buttler in between the overs. He was also seen uttering some words with animated gestures. Virender Sehwag, who is well known for his witty responses, had a unique suggestion for Bumrah.
Sehwag was in the commentary box when the incident unfolded. On seeing Bumrah losing his cool, Sehwag framed an answer for Bumrah to give it back to the English bowlers. He jokingly said, “If I was Bumrah, I would have said, I am from Mumbai Indians and will get all your IPL contracts cancelled”.
Earlier, at the end of the third day, James Anderson was seen saying something to Jasprit Bumrah. Anderson was angry at the fact that Bumrah aimed bouncers at him while the former was batting.
Shami, Bumrah take lead over 200
India are looking in a good position with having surpassed the 200 lead mark. England started the day well with two quick wickets. Ollie Robinson dismissed Rishabh Pant as the latter edged one to the wicketkeeper. After that, Robinson removed the experienced Ishant Sharma. However, the pair of Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah helped India better their position in the match.
Before that, Indian openers could not do much as Rahul fell early in the innings. Kohli also continued his poor run and nicked one off Sam Curran. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, who were under fire, pulled India back in the game with a 100-run partnership. Rahane scored a gutsy fifty before falling to Moeen Ali.
