After this, Mohammed Shami got the result of bowling consistently well from one end in the form of the wicket of Night Watchman Jack Leach. On Shami’s delivery, Virat Kohli dropped the catch of Leach in the slips but the next over the bowler caught him in the hands of Pant without opening the account. Jonny Bairstow is at the crease with captain Ben Stokes.
Earlier, Jasprit Bumrah played an unbeaten innings of 31 off 16 balls and the fire from his bat will be remembered by the visitors of Edgbaston for years. He took a record 29 runs off Stuart Broad’s one over with the bat while 35 runs were scored in that over, including six extras. In his first match as captain, Bumrah broke Brian Lara’s 18-year-old record for the highest score of 28 runs in an over in a Test match.
It was the impact of Bumrah’s all-rounder game that it reduced the brightness of Jadeja’s century. In the morning, Jadeja started the day with care and completed his third century and he hit 13 fours in his innings. For England, James Anderson took five wickets for 60 runs. He took five or more wickets for the 32nd time in a Test innings from Anderson, who turns 40 next month. During this, Broad completed 550 Test wickets.
