During the second Test of India’s tour of England, Bumrah and James Anderson had a heated debate during the middle of the game and it continued until India won the match by 151 runs. The episode started with Bumrah bowling a couple of bouncers to Anderson on day three.

Bumrah bowled four no-balls in the over and bowled a total of ten deliveries before completing his over. His first bouncer hit Anderson on the helmet and a concussion check was done. But, this didn’t stop Bumrah from bowling bouncers. Anderson was not at all pleased with the treatment he received from the Indian bowler and said a few words.

These words motivated Bumrah when he came out to bat as he stitched a partnership of 89 runs for the ninth wicket along with Mohammed Shami. Bumrah had an altercation with England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler while he was batting and umpire Richard Illingworth had to step in to calm Bumrah.
