India vs England 2nd Test: India's star pacer Jasprit Bumrah achieved another historic feat on Saturday as he became the fastest Indian pacer to clinch 150 Test wickets. Jasprit Bumrah reached the milestone in 33 matches while legendary pacers like Glenn McGrath and Jeff Thompson took 34 games to achieve the feat.

India vs England, 2nd Test Day 2 Live Score

Notably, Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin reached the 150-wicket mark in 29 Test matches while Ravindra Jadeja took 32 Tests to achieve the same feat.

Jasprit Bumrah is leading India's bowling attack on Day 2 of India's second Test match against England. The Indian pacer has clinched 6 wickets, which includes some big-ticket batters like Ollie Pope, Joe Root Ben Stokes, etc. Kuldeep Yadav took responsibility for the spin attack and the duo has placed India in a comfortable position against the visitors.

In the first Test match against England, Jasprit Bumrah notably excelled on a notably spin-friendly pitch in Hyderabad, securing four wickets in the second innings while conceding a mere 41 runs. Despite his overall six-wicket haul in the match, India experienced an unexpected 28-run defeat.

Brilliant comeback

The terrific performance from Jasprit Bumrah marks his brilliant comeback from a back injury that kept him off the field for almost a year. In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Team India struggled with its pace attack as Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj didn't bring that variance into the play.

Jasprit Bumrah made his Test debut in 2018 and his capacity to produce both speed and movement, combined with crafty variations, especially in the form of well-disguised slower deliveries, has rendered him a formidable challenge for batsmen across the globe.

On Day 2, Bumrah demonstrated his prowess by claiming six wickets, restricting England to a total of 253. With this, the home team established a significant lead of 143. Despite a brisk initial contribution from Zak Crawley, who scored 76, England consistently lost wickets at regular intervals, and their innings concluded in the third session in Visakhapatnam, concluding with skipper Ben Stokes making 47.
