    On Monday, July 4, Jasprit Bumrah, India’s acting captain in the upcoming Test at Edgbaston, accomplished a new feat by being the sixth Indian bowler to record 100 wickets in Test cricket’s SENA nations.

    On day four of the fifth Test match against England that was postponed, Bumrah dispatched England’s first batter Zak Crawley to attain the milestone.

    Jasprit Bumrah’s 100+ SENA wickets include 36 in England, 32 in Australia, 6 in New Zealand, and 26 in South Africa, the nation where he played his first Test match. Kapil Dev, Ishant Sharma, Zaheer Khan, Mohammed Shami, and Anil Kumble are the other Indian bowlers with 100 or more in SENA nations in Test cricket.

    Jasprit Bumrah removed Crawley in the second session, ending a powerful and quick opening combination of 107 runs. Significantly, openers Alex Lees and Zak Crawley put up a quickfire century-stand to help England get off to a great start in their pursuit of 378 runs. Following his return from the tea break, Bumrah assumed control of the fresh ball and promptly replaced Ollie Pope with a duck.

    India had previously completed their second innings with 245 runs, setting a 378-run goal for England. Only Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant were able to reach fifty runs for the visitors, who were unable to maintain their first innings form.

    Indian hitters were unable to overcome the fury of English captain Ben Stokes, who concluded with 4/33. India must either win the game to conclude the series at 3-1 or tie the game to maintain their 2-1 advantage in order to win the series.

    The fact that the openers returned to form in the final innings to give the team a strong start made it very evident that the England players’ only goal in this match is to win. If England prevails, the series will be tied and the captains will each receive one victory.
