India made fun of England’s batting as they bundled out the hosts for 110 runs. Mainly buried in the rubble was Jasprit Bumrah, who registered insane figures of 6/19. After losing the toss, England had to bat first and paid a price very early in the game when Bumrah dismissed Bairstow and Joe Root in the same over. But the bowler didn’t work out as he came back and dealt a blow to England once again by removing Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone. Earlier, Ben Stokes was dismissed by Mohammed Shami.
110 all out.
Bumrah hit a six.
It turned out to be a busy day India The wicketkeeper who took his second one-handed catch to dismiss the dangerous Jonny Bairstow (7) gave Bumrah his third wicket.
Bumrah soon posted 26 for five as Liam Livingstone (0) charged up the track to sabotage the bowler’s rhythm but ended up playing around a quick and swinging yorker at the leg-stump.
England captain Jos Buttler (30 off 32) showed positive intent to get his team out of the hole, but played more than one, given the state of the game.
Brought back into the attack, Shami goes for a short ball and Buttler mistimed the bridge to take a catch at deep square leg, leaving England for 59 for seven.
India, playing with four fast bowlers including Hardik Pandya and the famous Krishna, also helped the visitors keep the pressure off.
A 35-run ninth-wicket partnership between David Willey (21 off 26) and Bryson Kars (15 off 26) allowed England to surpass their lowest total of 86 runs against Australia in 2001.
Bumrah returned to the attack to take his second five-wicket haul in ODI cricket. It was no surprise that he reached the milestone with a yorker that was great for the Cars.
