James Anderson-Jasprit Bumrah’s incident last year was cited by Jaffer.
He argued that Marco should have taken the lesson from that and used it in his fight with Bumrah.
Bumrah got sweet retribution on Jansen when he bowled him out.
It was Wasim Jaffer who pointed out that Marco Jansen could have learned from James Anderson and Jasprit Bumrah last year when they faced off in Test cricket and how that should have prepared him for his match with the Indian pacer.
Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah castled South Africa pacer Marco Janssen and claimed sweet retribution for their violent altercation in the first innings of the previous Test in Johannesburg. One of Bumrah’s most memorable deliveries came on the second day of the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. The off-stump was lost because Jansen was late. After he was dismissed, Bumrah even looked at the batter with a sneer on his face. Angering Bumrah in this manner is not a good idea for any opposing player, as this episode remarkably demonstrated.
Bumrah and Anderson had a go at each other during India’s tour of England last year when they were both at the crease with the bat. Bumrah had the last laugh at the expense of his rivals.
It was made plain in Wasim Jaffer’s latest post that players need to “learn from history” and if they don’t, they are “doomed” against an “inspired” Bumrah.
Jaffer referred to Bumrah as “phenomenal” when describing her performance.
“Learn from the past and you’ll never have to repeat it. What a player, Jasprit Bumrah, is. #SAvIND.”
An impressive five-wicket haul from Bumrah helped Indians dismiss South Africans for the loss of 210 runs in the first innings. In 23.3 overs, he took 5/42 wickets. Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, and Shardul Thakur each got two wickets in addition to Bumrah’s lone.
However, India lost two early wickets and finished the second day at Stump’s with a lead of 70 runs instead of 57/2.
