When it comes to fast bowling there is no one close to Jasprit Bumrah across formats. He has been a nightmare for the batters in a span of few years. The spearhead provided India with a perfect start by dismissing Aiden Markram on second ball of Day 2 of the third Test match in Cape Town.

Bumrah set-up the batter smartly. Bowling from over the wicket, he bowled the first ball on a good length that took a thin edge and rolled to the gully region. The next delivery came back in sharply and Markram misjudged it completely, shouldering his arms allowing it to hit the stumps.

Bumrah had similarly dismissed Rassie van der Dussen in the first Test.
