Mumbai Indians pacer Jasprit Bumrah bowled a fantastic yorker to dismiss the first centurion of IPL 2022, Jos Buttler, in the game against Rajasthan Royals. Bumrah bowled a brilliant spell with the new ball and accounted for the wicket of Yashasvi Jaiswal in just his second over. He came back to bowl the last over of his quota in the penultimate over and picked up both Shimron Hetmyer and Buttler to finish with 3 for 17.

The right-arm quick had a tough outing in his first game against the Delhi Capitals where he conceded 43 in just 3.3 overs at an economy rate of 12.90. He took the new ball in the second game where he excelled and made up for an off day in his first game with a good spell. Bumrah is as one of the best in the business when it comes to bowling the tough overs for his side.

Buttler got to his second century in IPL and was looking to take the game away from the Mumbai Indians. He has always had some great battles with Bumrah in the past but it was the bowler who had the last laugh with a stunning yorker that hit the middle stump and there was not much that the batter could have done against the delivery. In the process, it also brought an end to a superlative innings from Buttler.

The other bowlers around Bumrah for the Mumbai Indians went to the cleaners with the short boundaries at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy. Thampi conceded 26 in the one over he bowled while Murugan Ashwin and Kieron Pollard conceded more than 10 runs per over. Rajasthan Royals, on the back of Buttler’s century and a fine finish from Shimron Hetmyer (35 off 14), got to a big total of 193 on the board in their 20 overs.
