Jasprit Bumrah’s Rampant Bowling , England’s First Innings, Trails by 143 Runs:

However, the English batsmen showcased their mettle amidst challenging conditions, with opener Zak Crawley leading the charge with a solid knock of 76 runs off 78 deliveries. Crawley’s innings was punctuated with 11 boundaries and 2 sixes, providing England with a strong start despite the early loss of Ben Duckett.

Ben Duckett’s departure after a brisk 21 runs off 17 balls saw England momentarily on the back foot, but Crawley’s partnership with Ollie Pope helped stabilize the innings. Pope’s patient 23 runs off 55 balls contributed crucially to England’s effort, although he fell victim to Jasprit Bumrah’s pace.

The Indian bowlers, spearheaded by Jasprit Bumrah, posed a constant threat to the English batsmen, with Bumrah finishing with impressive figures of 6 wickets for 45 runs from his 15.5 overs. Kuldeep Yadav also made significant inroads, claiming 3 crucial wickets to further dent England’s progress.

Despite losing wickets at regular intervals, England’s middle order showed resilience, with Jonny Bairstow and skipper Ben Stokes making valuable contributions of 25 and 47 runs respectively. However, the Indian bowlers continued to apply pressure, restricting England to a total of 253 runs, trailing India by 143 runs at the innings break.

The fall of wickets at crucial junctures hindered England’s momentum, with the lower order unable to capitalize on the platform set by the top order. Nevertheless, the English batsmen displayed determination and grit in the face of a potent Indian bowling attack.
