India vs Bangladesh, World Cup 2019: Jasprit Bumrah on verge of massive record
Jasprit Bumrah, India’s premiere fast bowler, has a chance to enter the record books when India take on Bangladesh in their next ICC World Cup match at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Tuesday. Bumrah, who gave away only 26 runs in his last five overs in the death and also picked up the important wicket of Ben Stokes, could not stop England from posting 337 for 7 on Sunday, which turned out to be a bit too much for even the strong Indian batting line-up as England restricted them to 306 for 5. India suffered their first loss in World Cup 2019 by 31 runs.
Virat Kohli’s men, however, would look to quickly shrug off the defeat and ensure their semi-final qualification against Bangladesh, who desperately need a victory to be in the race to semi-finals.
Bumrah, once again will play a key role against the likes of Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, who have been in scintillating form in the World Cup so far.
Despite being brilliant with the ball, Bumrah has not been able to pick up a bag full of wickets in the World Cup. 10 wickets in 6 matches does not give the entire picture, Bumrah has bowled way better than that. But the World No. 1 fast bowler has a chance to make amends against Bangladesh.
Bumrah needs a five-wicket haul against Bangladesh to become the joint-fastest Indian bowler to take 100 ODI wickets along with Mohammed Shami. If manages to pick up 5 wickets against Bangladesh then He would become joint 6th fastest to 100 wickets overall along with Trent Boult (56) and Mohammed Shami (56).
