Indian ace speedster Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc against England in the first ODI in the three-match ODI series at the Kennington Oval in London on Tuesday, July 12.
Jasprit Bumrah tallies career-best figures
Team India skipper Rohit Sharma had won the toss and opted to bowl first. India was without the service of Virat Kohli who was sidelined after sustaining a groin injury.
Jasprit Bumrah ran riots at The Oval with his destructive bowling display. He returned with his career-best figures in ODIs with 6 for 19 while Mohammed Shami took 3 for 31 as India bundled out England for a paltry 110 runs. Prasidh Krishna claimed the remaining one wicket to bundle the hosts. The English batters faltered early on in the match.
Bumrah struck twice in one over with the wickets of Jason Roy and Joe Root before Mohammed Shami bowled a sublime delivery to dismiss Ben Stokes. Later, Bumrah got the better of Jonny Bairtsow and Liam Livingstone. Prasidh Krishna got Moeen Ali, while Shami returned and picked the wickets of Jos Buttler and Craig Overton.
Jasprit Bumrah then dismissed Brydon Carse and Reece Topley to register a six-wicket haul and became the first Indian pace bowler to take six wickets in an ODI in England. Jos Buttler was the top run-scorer for England with his 30 off 32 balls.
Coming on to bat, Team India chased down the low total of 111 runs with 10 wickets in hand. Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Rohit Sharma completed the run-chase flawlessly. Dhawan scored 21* off 54while Sharma notched a brilliant half century and finished the game with 76* off 58 balls.
India are set to face England in the 2nd ODI on Thursday, July 14 at the same venue.
