On Sunday in Chennai, Jasprit Bumrah gave Team India its first breakthrough in the ODI World Cup match against Australia.
The renowned pacer Jasprit Bumrah gave Team India their first success against Australia on Sunday in Chennai during the Cricket World Cup 2023 match. In the third over of the innings, the top Indian pacer eliminated opener Mitchell Marsh for a duck. Because of the extra bounce in Bumrah’s ball, Marsh, who had been opening with David Warner, was confused and ended up surrendering a catch to Virat Kohli at the slip. India was successful in dismissing an Australian opener for a duck, a first in the ODI World Cup’s history.
Anil Kumble, a former India spinner, held the record for the most catches in the ODI World Cup with 14, but Kohli (15) now holds the title.
Along with Kohli, it was a historic achievement for Bumrah, who made ODI World Cup history by becoming the first Indian bowler to dismiss an Australian opener for a duck. Bumrha gave India the early breakthrough that inspired the group.
In the 150th ODI between the two powerhouses, Australia captain Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bat first against India.
Due to a hamstring injury, Marcus Stoinis will not play in Chennai for the five-time champions.
Sean Abbott, Josh Inglis, and Stoinis were also left out, according to Cummins, who added that an injured Travis Head was “on a couch in Adelaide”.
Shubman Gill, the starting quarterback for India, is still reportedly sick with dengue fever. Ishan Kishan has been selected to bat first for the team.
With hundreds of people waiting outside the stadium, which was just halfway full before the first ball, the match is likely to draw a large crowd in contrast to the majority-empty stadiums thus far throughout the tournament.
