Jimmy Anderson had been through the wars, peppered by Jasprit Bumrah’s bouncers during that morning session on the fifth day at Lord’s. But as the old proverb goes, the comeback is always greater than the setback. The ageless spearhead bounced back with a vengeance, outfoxing India’s top-order before Lunch on day one at Headingley. He lured KL Rahul into a booming drive before playing on Pujara’s mind with a host of induckers only to swindle him with an away-seamer. Anderson also had his nemesis Virat Kohli edging behind to lead England’s prance into ascendancy early in the contest.
We think @jimmy9 enjoyed this one! 💥
