Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best fast bowlers in the world at the moment and is on the cusp of becoming the best death bowler.

He is 5 scalps away from surpassing Rashid Khan as the bowler with most wickets in the death overs (16-20).

The premier spinner of Afghanistan has picked up 33 wickets in the last five overs (all in T20Is starting from 2013) while Jasprit Bumrah is third with 29 wickets to his name.

The second spot is occupied by Lasith Malinga with 31 wickets.

Earlier, from 89-2, Australia nosedived to 113-7 as India tightened its bowling and fielding.

Bumrah struck off successive balls in the 19th over to go past 50 wickets in T20 internationals, only the second India bowler after Ravichandran Ashwin (52) to do so in this format.

With 14 runs needed from the last over, Umesh Yadav conceded two boundaries and Pat Cummins (7 not out) and Jhye Richardson (7 not out) gave Australia the win by scampering home for two runs off the final delivery.
