This veteran raised questions after Root got the man of the match
The first Test match ended in a draw, but England captain Joe Root was adjudged ‘Man of the Match’ for his century. Former India opener and commentator Aakash Chopra has raised questions on Joe Root getting ‘Man of the Match’. Aakash Chopra admitted that the real contender for ‘Man of the Match’ was India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.
Told this Indian man of the match contender
Let us inform that India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah had brought England on the back foot. Jasprit Bumrah took 9 wickets in the first test match. Commentator Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel, ‘Man of the match for me is Jasprit Bumrah, because Bumrah has taken a total of 9 wickets in the match.’
This bowler had turned the bet
Aakash Chopra said, ‘When you bowl after losing the toss, then it becomes necessary to take wickets on the first day. Bumrah set the tone of the entire match by taking a wicket in the very first over. After that he took one more wicket and quickly wrapped up the tail batsmen too.
Showed amazing with the bat too
According to Aakash Chopra, the contribution made by Jasprit Bumrah with the bat cannot be ignored. Aakash Chopra said, ‘Jasprit Bumrah also scored the necessary runs for the team after this. Had he not scored those runs, India would not have got a lead of 95 runs. So you should keep that in mind as well.
