Headingley will host the third Test match in the five-match series between India and England. This match between the two teams will begin on August 25.
For Team India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, the third match against the English team is particularly important. In this match, he has a chance to break the record for the fastest 100 wickets for India. If Bumrah achieves his goal, he will succeed in replacing former skipper and famous all-rounder Kapil Dev.
Jasprit Bumrah is in fantastic form right now, with 95 wickets in 22 matches. He appears to be in good form for the third Test against England, which will be held at Headingley.
Captain Kapil Dev, who led India to the 1983 World Cup, completed this achievement in only 25 Test matches. Bumrah will also exceed Venkatesh Prasad’s 95 Test wickets and Manoj Prabhakar’s 96 Test wickets if he achieves this record.
Bumrah In Form
In the past, Bumrah’s Test match versus England at Lord’s was highly successful. He not only bowled brilliantly in this match, but he also batted well, sharing an 89-run partnership with Mohammed Shami, after which England’s victory was taken from their hands. In this match, India defeated England by a large score of 151 runs.
The England batters had targeted Jasprit Bumrah for bowling a beamer against James Anderson earlier in the Lord’s Test.
While returning to Bumrah’s bowling route, Mark Wood shouted something from the non-end. striker’s Bumrah was furious and complained to the on-field umpires right away. Meanwhile, Root and Butler visited Bumrah to find out what was bothering him.
Despite the fact that England tried everything during this time, it had the opposite effect on the English team. The Indian team’s tail batters contributed 33 runs to increase India’s lead to more over 200 runs. The England players were after Bumrah when he bowled a bouncer on James Anderson while batting on the third day. Anderson then sledged Virat on the fourth day, but he received a proper answer.
