Nagpur, Jan 30: Young Jasprit Bumrah shone in the death like never before as his excellent final over ensured India sensationally edged out England by five runs in the second Twenty20 International to level the three-match series here on Sunday night (January 29).
Needing eight runs off six balls, Bumrah, all of 23, perhaps bowled the over of his life as he restricted England to just two runs and end their innings at 139 for six in pursuit of 145.
The match seemed to be in England's bag when Jos Buttler clobbered veteran Ashish Nehra for 16 runs with two sixes in the penultimate over.
However, Bumrah had other ideas, eventually finishing with figures of 2/20 in 4 overs, while his senior colleague Nehra took 3/28.
This was after opener KL rahul stood out with a breezy 71 on a surface where shot-making was difficult.
Put in to bat, Rahul's knock was the lone bright spot as India could manage a modest score before the bowlers turned the match around on its head.
