India Tour Of England: Anderson On Bouncer Barrage From Bumrah, “I felt he wasn’t trying to get me out”

Highlights:

  • India leads the 5-match test series against England in India tour of England by 1-0
  • England pacer James Anderson said it did not feel like Bumrah was trying to get me out
  • 3rd test match will begin from 25th August

The Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah had an excellent Test match against England at Lord’s as he not only shine with the ball on the last day after picking three important wickets, he also scored an important unbeaten 34 run inning to help India set a fighting target.

Having said that, if there is one thing that stood out from the match, it was his battle with England pacer James Anderson.

Towards the end of the first innings of England, Bumrah unleashed a barrage of bouncers on Anderson. He banged it short and bowled at the body of the English pacer, Anderson.

Bumrah even caught the helmet once apart from a couple of body blows.

Speaking in Tailenders podcast, veteran pacer Anderson said that he was caught off guard a little because of the pace and felt that Bumrah was not trying to get him out.

Anderson said, “I got caught off guard a little bit because all the batters coming in were saying how slow the pitch was.

“Banged in short; it was really slow. When I came out to bat, Joe said Bumrah was not bowling as quick as he normally does. And then, the first ball was 90 miles an hour and on the money, wasn’t it?

“And it felt like, I haven’t felt like this ever in my career. I felt he wasn’t trying to get me out.

James Anderson reflected on the long over which Jasprit Bumrah bowled involving multiple no-balls as he struggled to survive that spell.

Anderson said, “I felt he wasn’t trying to get me out. He bowled an over, maybe 10, 11, 12 balls. He was bowling no-ball after no-ball, bowling short.

“I think he bowled two on the stumps which I managed to dig out. So for me, it was just about trying to survive that and get Joe back on strike.”

Anderson, however, failed to bag a single wicket in the second innings after he claimed a five-wicket haul in the first.

The third Test will begin from today at Headingley, Leeds.
