New Delhi: The Test series between Team India and England continues. After the first test turned out to be inconclusive, Team India rocked the second test. The Indian team defeated the British by 151 runs at the historic ground of Lord’s. In this match, there was a lot of heat between the two players and captain Virat Kohli’s anger was also criticized, although many people also got into his sport.
During this match, there was a big dispute between Gland fast bowler James Anderson and Indian pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah and its anger could be clearly seen in the players of both the teams. Now Ashwin has made a big disclosure on this matter.
Ashwin revealed on the feud
During a conversation with India’s fielding coach Ramakrishnan Sridhar on his YouTube channel, Ashwin said, ‘The point was, Anderson was saying, Hey friend! Why are you bowling so fast? Do I bowl the same way against you? You only bowl at 85 MPH to the rest of the batsmen, but against me you were bowling at 90 MPH. This is a hoax, I will not accept it’.
Ashwin later told R Sridhar, ‘So after the innings, when the players were going back to the dressing room. Then, Bumrah passed Jimmy and patted him, so that he felt that it was not done intentionally. We all know Bumrah, he is a very good person. So he went to talk to her and finish the matter, but Jimmy sidelined her.
There was a fight between Bumrah and Anderson
In fact, during the second Test, England captain Joe Root and Anderson were batting and England’s 9 wickets fell. The third day’s play was about to end. Then Indian star bowler Jasprit Bumrah came to bowl the over and he started putting bouncers one after the other, then one ball hit his helmet too.
After the dismissal of James Anderson, when the players of both the teams started returning to the pavilion, Anderson got angry and went to Jasprit Bumrah and called Bumrah bad. His anger grew so much that Root had to intervene. During the pre-show on Sony Sports, some scenes from the previous day after the stump were shown and a debate ensued over Bumrah’s over and Anderson’s reaction. On the next and fifth day when Bumrah came out to bat, the battle continued and the players got into an argument.
