Nagpur (Maharashtra) [India]: Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah’s stellar performance conceding just two runs and taking two wickets in the final over helped India level the three match T20 series against England at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, in Nagpur on Sunday.
England required 41 off 30 with seven wickets in hand, and eight off the final over with six wickets in hand.
But India still managed to win courtesy some sensational end-overs by Bumrah.
India was asked to bat first after the visitors won the toss in the crucial match.
India started off on a jittery note, but K.L. Rahul’s defiant knock off 71 from 47 balls including six fours and two monstrous sixes made sure that it was able to post a decent 144 on the board.
England on their part started off well but Ashish Nehra’s stellar bowling performance, who became the leading wicket taker of India constantly troubled the batsmen.
Bumrah was later judged Man of the Match for his clinical performance. (ANI)
