What made the occasion really special was that the premier pacer executing his yorkers to perfection.

This happened on the final ball of the fifth over. Finch who was looking well-set in the middle had hit Bumrah for a four on the first delivery of that over and looked to be in complete control to help the visitors in posting a mammoth total on the board.

Nonetheless, it was Jasprit who had the last laugh and removed the big threat Aaron Finch. Bumrah bowled a fiery yorker right on the blockhole that angled in. The batter failed to get his bat down in time and defend the ball as it hit the leg stump on the full and the home crowd erupted in celebrations. 

Meanwhile, the non-striker Matthew Wade thought that the ball had beaten the batter and the keeper, he attempted to run, but stopped midway after finally realizing that his captain has been clean bowled.
