India’s bowling attack has come under question recently, but star pacer Jasprit Bumrah on Friday showed why his return was so highly expected to be caught by Australia captain Aaron Finch in the third T20I in Nagpur. Finch looked in a disastrous mood until Bumrah came on to bowl in the short match and was cast with a short full toss. The delivery fell on Finch and left him tight for space, and the Australia opener could not drop his bat in time. The ball hit his leg-stump, ending his 15-ball 31.

Bumrah’s delivery was so good that on his way back to the dugout, even Finch applauded him.

Bumrah once again showed his skill with a scintillating yorker to Steve Smith, who had the batsman on the field.
He ended with a spell of 1/23 as India restricted Australia to 90/5 as a wet outfield meant the match was reduced to eight overs.
Matthew Wade continued his good form for Australia, remaining unbeaten on 43 off 20 balls, while Axar Patel once again proved to be India’s best bowler, taking two wickets for just 13 runs in his two overs.
Rohit Sharma then scored an unbeaten 46 off just 20 balls to guide India to a six-wicket victory.
The win means that India have leveled the three-match series 1-1. Both the teams will now play the deciding match in Hyderabad on Sunday.
