Bumrah wears a smile

Bumrah outsmarted England skipper Joe Root (13) and then broke a 169-run stand spanning 57.2 overs between his Mumbai Indians teammate Jos Buttler (106) and Ben Stokes (62), trapping the former leg before. He bowled a marathon 26 overs on Day 4, including nine in the morning and 11 in the extended, final session. “When I made my first-class debut, my first spell was of 10 overs,” he said, after taking 5/85 for a match haul of seven. “I was always used to bowling lots of overs in Ranji Trophy. When I was injured I was working on my fitness. I was always in touch with our trainers -- whenever I come I should be in a good space.”

Hello and welcome

It’s a victory that would rank with the finest for India and the circumstances and margin will make it more special. However, India will have to wait to pick a wicket after their roll was turned into a battle of attrition initiated by two unlikely England batsmen in the Trent Bridge Test. Jasprit Bumrah fast forwarded India towards their target, snapping four wickets with the new ball to claim five in the innings, seven in all, in a superb comeback from injury. But England’s last wicket pair of Adil Rashid and James Anderson held out in the extended 30 minutes to keep India waiting till the last day. England were 311/9, 209 runs behind. Skipper Virat Kohli, hands clasped behind the back at third slip, watched his bowlers toil for well over four hours as Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes produced a mini-epic. India broke the resistance once the second new ball gave them more ammunition to attack on a pitch offering little help.
