India vs Australia: Jasprit Bumrah Reaches Maiden First-class 50 With a Six, Virat Kohli Goes Berserk

It doesn't generally happen for Team India that their tail-enders put up a stellar show against quality bowling, but in the second warm-up match against Australia A, Jasprit Bumrah did just that. Not known for his batting abilities at all, Bumrah struck a quickfire fifty to help India score some valuable runs in time of utter need. He pulled Will Sutherland for a huge six to reach the milestone. Also, he remained unbeaten on 55 from just 57 balls, while the Indian innings folded at 194.
