Footage of Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah entering the Long Room after their remarkable partnership of 77 before lunch is enough to make the hair stand up on the back of any Indian fan’s neck. Shami hit his first Test match fifty for seven years, and Jasprit Bumrah, averaging the best part of 3 before this game, saw off some hostile England bowling to hit 30 not out and send a section of the Lord’s crowd into raptures. The partnership saved India from likely defeat, stretching their lead towards 260.
A partnership to remember for ages for @Jaspritbumrah93 & @MdShami11 on the field and a rousing welcome back to the dressing room from #TeamIndia.
What a moment this at Lord’s 👏👏👏#ENGvIND pic.twitter.com/biRa32CDTt
