India pacer Jasprit Bumrah wasn’t a happy man as KS Bharat‘s advice to skipper Rohit Sharma cost him the wicket of England batter Ben Duckett on Day 3 of the first Test at Hyderabad. Bumrah seemed to have trapped Duckett in front of the stumps, prompting a loud appeal but the umpire turned it down. The India pacer was keen for the decision to be reviewed but wicket-keeper batter KS Bharat rushed to skipper Rohit Sharma and hinted that the ball could be going down the leg side. Rohit went with Bharat’s suggestion.

When the replay was brought on the giant screen and ball tracking was shown, Bumrah was quite disappointed as the trajectory suggested that the ball would’ve hit the leg stump. Had India gone with the review, Duckett would’ve been given out.’

Bumrah was quite animated on the field upon realising that he was robbed of a wicket. But, in the next over, the veteran pacer dismissed Duckett by shattering his stumps. Bumrah’s celebration to that dismissal signified how much the wicket meant to him.

It isn’t common for Bumrah to celebrate the dismissals of batters in the manner he did in the case of Duckett. Understanding that he might not get another opportunity to dismiss the England star soon, Bumrah was understandably charged. 

Bumrah didn’t have to seek anyone’s help the next, sending Duckett packing clean bowled. Duckett was England’s top performer in the morning session of Day 3, scoring 47 runs off 52 balls before he had to return to the dressing room.
