Jasprit Bumrah is arguably the best fast bowler in the world right now, and he proved it once again in India’s opening match of the Cricket World Cup 2023 against Australia at Chennai. Bumrah claimed India’s first wicket of the tournament, dismissing Mitchell Marsh for a duck in the third over of the innings. He then bowled a tight spell, conceding only 16 runs in his first five overs and keeping the pressure on the Australian batsmen.

How Jusprit Bumrah dismissed Marsh

Bumrah’s wicket of Marsh was a classic example of his skill and accuracy. He pitched the ball just outside the off-stump, making Marsh play at it. The ball moved slightly away from the right-hander, taking the edge and flying to Virat Kohli at first slip, who took a brilliant catch. It was a huge breakthrough for India, as Marsh had scored a century in his previous ODI against England.

Bumrah’s wicket also had a sense of déjà vu, as he had also taken India’s first wicket of the 2019 World Cup when he dismissed Hashim Amla in their opening match against South Africa. Bumrah had bowled a superb spell in that match as well, giving away only 35 runs in 10 overs and taking two wickets. He had also troubled the Australian batsmen in the 2019 World Cup semi-final, where he took one wicket and conceded only 40 runs in 10 overs.

How Bumrah became India’s most reliable bowler

Bumrah has been India’s most consistent and reliable bowler in all formats of the game, especially in ODIs. He has taken 121 wickets in 75 ODIs at an average of 23.61 and an economy rate of 4.66. He has also taken five four-wicket hauls and one five-wicket haul in ODIs. He is known for his ability to bowl yorkers, bouncers, slower balls and cutters with equal ease and effectiveness.

How Bumrah set the tone for India’s victory

Bumrah’s performance in the World Cup opener was crucial for India, as they were facing a strong Australian team that had won their last two ODI series against England and New Zealand. Australia had also won the toss and opted to bat first on a flat pitch at Chennai. Bumrah gave India the early advantage by removing Marsh and setting the tone for the rest of the bowlers.

India went on to restrict Australia to 264 for 9 in 50 overs, with Bumrah finishing with figures of 2 for 47 in 10 overs. He also took the wicket of Pat Cummins in the death overs, breaking a dangerous partnership between him and Glenn Maxwell. India then chased down the target with six wickets and nine balls to spare, thanks to Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 121 and KL Rahul’s 68.

Conclusion

India started their World Cup campaign on a high note, beating their arch-rivals by six wickets. Bumrah was one of the heroes of the match, along with Sharma and Rahul. He showed why he is regarded as one of the best bowlers in the world, and why he is vital for India’s chances of lifting their third World Cup trophy.
