Jasprit Bumrah is the hero Of the Match

Nottingham, Aug 22: Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah's freakish ability to bowl yorkers in Twenty20 cricket has made him an IPL superstar but now he has proved he can be a real force in Test cricket too.

Bumrah is the first Indian fast bowler to take two five-wicket hauls in his first four Tests after his five for 85 that left England on the brink of defeat here on Tuesday.

Four of Bumrah's five wickets came in the final session of the fourth day. The pacer dismissed England captain Joe Root in the first session and was made to wait for long. But his second wicket of the match prove to be the most important one.

Bumrah dismissed Jos Buttler, who scored his maiden century in the match, to break the stubborn 169-run stand between the batsman and Ben Stokes. He later went on to dismiss Jonny Bairstow, Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad.

Bumrah's first five-wicket haul came against South Africa in the away series earlier this year. In the Johannesburg Test, Bumrah snared five for 54 in the first innings as India won the match by 63 runs.
