As Bumrah scalped his 100th wicket in red-ball cricket, the cricket on-lookers and experts are all full of praises for the speedster. A Twitter user posted a video that shows the first and 100th wicket of Bumrah. It in a way displays the long path the pacer has traveled over the years, leading India’s fast bowling unit.
Jasprit Bumrah picked up his maiden Test wicket on day one of India’s opening Test against South Africa at Cape Town. And the wicket was not of just any other batter. The Indian speedster had received his Test cap that very morning and garnered the audacity of the occasion by getting his first Test wicket in South African batsman AB de Villiers. The batter tried to play the delivery of Bumrah but the ball hit the inside edge and then hit the off stumps. His 100th wicket happened to be England’s batter Ollie Pope. Pope got beaten by the pace and the ball went on to shatter the stumps.
