first_img India Today Web Desk MelbourneDecember 28, 2018UPDATED: December 28, 2018 19:10 IST Jasprit Bumrah picked up a six-for to help India bowl out Australia for 151 in the first innings of the Boxing Day Test (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSJasprit Bumrah picked his third five-wicket haul in Tests this year on Friday in the third match vs Australia He has so far picked 45 wickets in his first year in Test cricketJavagal Srinath said Bumrah was unplayable against Australia on Day 3 at the MCGFormer India pacer Javagal Srinath lauded Jasprit Bumrah after his career-best 6 for 33 derailed Australia on the third day of the Boxing Day Test.Bumrah broke a 39-year-old Indian record for the most Test wickets in his debut year; he also became the only Asian bowler to take five-wicket hauls in South Africa, England and Australia in the same calendar year.After India declared their first innings at 443 for 7, the focus was on India’s bowlers on a pitch which has troubled batsmen with its variable bounce. Bumrah, like has done so often, stepped up and ripped apart Australia’s batting line-up with a clever mix of yorkers, bouncers and slower deliveries.Not surprisingly, Bumrah dominated cricket headlines on Friday and he found an admirer in Srinath, one of India’s finest pacers with 236 Test wickets.”This would definitely be one of the best spells bowled in Australia. That is what my opinion is. He was unplayable all the way through. It was not just one spell but every ball he bowled he looked terrific. The pace he generated was unbelievable and the line he bowled was too good. He has brought in more variety and he has truly showcased all varieties in fast bowling,” Srinath told MyNation.Bumrah has given India a massive advantage in the Test after Ricky Ponting questioned Cheteshwar Pujara’s slow strike rate during a gutsy hundred. Virat Kohli doffed his hat off to Bumrah who said the Indian domestic cricket was key to his superb performance in Test cricket this year.advertisement”… Yes, I have played in the IPL. But for Test match cricket, I always credit, first-class cricket. IPL is four overs but over there you have to continuously bowl. So first-class cricket has really helped shape my career, even in ODI cricket and Test matches,” Bumrah said in a video interview available on BCCI’s official website.Also Read | Jasprit Bumrah does what Waqar, Wasim and Vaas could not doAlso Read | Jasprit Bumrah reveals Rohit Sharma suggested slower ball to Shaun MarshAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
