India pacer Jasprit Bumrah on Monday (October 18) showed a teaser of what's coming for the opponents in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. Bumrah is known for his accuracy and he troubles the batsmen with his perfect yorkers.

During the warm-up match against England, Bumrah produced a stunning yorker to get rid of Jonny Bairstow. It was a brute of delivery as Bairstow failed to work the ball into the on-side and his leg-stump was shattered.

This dream delivery from Jasprit Bumrah also reminded the cricket fans of his peach of a yorker that sent Jonny Bairstow packing in the fourth Test between India and England at the Oval last month.

Coming to the warm-up match, Bumrah returned with impressive figures of 1/26 in his four overs but England still managed to pile up a massive 188/5 in their allotted 20 overs. Bairstow was the top scorer with 36-ball 49.

In reply, India lit up the powerplay with KL Rahul’s stunning 51 off 24 balls. Ishan Kishan top-scored in his role as opener with 70(46) and it was Rishabh Pant 29(14) and Hardik Pandya 16(10) who finished off the chase with seven wickets in hand and an over to spare
