Despite failing to connect a single ball in Jansen’s over, Bumrah was observed smiling at the end of the over.
Nonetheless, Bumrah smashed a huge six when one of his reckless swings connected off Jasprit Bumrah’s next over. Before being dismissed by Lungi Ngidi, the tail-ender added 7 runs to India’s total. Jansen, by the way, was the one who caught the scorching lower-order batter at point and sent him back to the Pavillion.
