Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami went after England bowlers on the fifth day of the second Test match at Lord’s. England players were seen having an argument with Bumrah. In the same turn of events, Wasim Jaffer came up with a hilarious meme to mock the hosts.
Bumrah was the target of England pacers who bowled deadly bouncers and one of the bouncers even hit the head of the Indian pacer. He was checked for a concussion and was given go head to bat. Jaffer came with a picture that stated that English batsmen are requesting their bowlers not to trouble Bumrah as they could face the consequences when they bat later in the day.

Earlier, Virat was lambasted for another failure in the Test series. Former legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar also criticized the India skipper for not batting well.
“That method has been successful for him. He has got 8000 Test runs with that back and across the movement. But he is playing at deliveries way outside off stump and a little too early in the innings. This time around, the foot is somewhere else, the bat is somewhere else, which means that he hasn’t really played well. It could be about this much-talked-about word intent but in a five-day game, every batsman goes in to score runs. It’s the method that differs,” said Gavaskar while discussing the game.
