Jasprit Bumrah gave Mumbai Indians a flying start vs the Delhi Capitals with two early wickets at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Saturday. The 28-year-old, the first Indian pacer to take 250 T20 wickets, dismissed Mitchell Marsh and Prithvi Shaw in his first two overs.

After electing to bowl, Rohit Sharma brought Bumrah into the attack in the fourth over. The pacer first managed to take Mitchell Marsh’s edge with a good length delivery just outside off stump. The skipper took the catch diving low to his right at the slips. 

In his next over, Jasprit Bumrah delivered what was described as an ‘unplayable bouncer’ that smashed Prithvi Shaw on his gloves and flew to the wicketkeeper.
