Windies skipper Jason Holder had high praise for India pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who claimed a stunning five-for as the regional team barely got to 100 runs in its second innings against India on Sunday.
Bumrah took a damaging 5 wickets for just 7 runs, at one point leaving the Windies fighting to get to a half a century as the team struggled at 15 for 5. In the end, 38 from tail-ender Kemar Roach did see the Windies dismissed for 100, still losing by a massive 318 runs.
The Indian pacer was responsible for the dismissal of three of the team’s top-order batsmen, with Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell and Darren Bravo combining for 10 runs between them.
“Today Bumrah bowled some magic balls and he got few of our batsmen with some very good ball. We have to find ways. He is a quality bowler but definitely, there is a solution out there,” Holder said following the match.
Holder also had praise for Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami as they claimed 2 and 3 wickets, respectively.
"They bowled well. Bumrah bowled an exceptional spell, Ishant was very supportive as well as Shami. I just want those spells where the opposition gets on top and stays on top. We have seen that happening around the world."
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
