England batter Ollie Pope had no answer to Jasprit Bumrah’s stunning yorker
Second Test, Visakhapatnam (day two of five):
India 396 (Jaiswal 209; Anderson 3-47, Ahmed 3-65, Bashir 3-138) & 28-0
England 253: Crawley 76; Bumrah 6-45, Kuldeep 3-71
India lead by 171 runs

England were blown away by a scintillating spell of reverse-swing bowling by India’s Jasprit Bumrah on day two of the second Test in Visakhapatnam.

Bumrah took 6-45 in a devastating burst either side of tea, sensationally knocking Ollie Pope’s middle and leg stumps out of the ground with an unplayable in-swinging yorker.

Zak Crawley batted beautifully for 76, but his loose swipe at Axar Patel allowed Bumrah and spinner Kuldeep Yadav to rip the heart out of England’s middle order. In all, the tourists lost 6-68.

Ben Stokes fought back with 47 until he was bowled by Bumrah, who took his fifth when Tom Hartley was caught at first slip and then had James Anderson lbw to leave England 253 all out.

That gave India a first-innings…
