"Most by any man in the world" - Jasprit Bumrah creates a unique record in 2nd T20I against England

"Most by any man in the world" - Jasprit Bumrah creates a unique record in 2nd T20I against England
The second match between India and England is underway at Edgbaston. And as per the current situation, it looks like the hosts are struggling with nine of their batters are back in the dugout. The Indian bowlers did an amazing job, and it all started with the very first ball of the innings. 

The veteran pacer, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, once again gave India a perfect start and picked up the wicket of Jason Roy off the very first ball. Then he came back for his second over and picked up the wicket of the English skipper, Jos Buttler, once again.

However, Liam Livingstone came out and hit three good boundaries and showed some intent. But he also couldn't do much. He was dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah for a slower ball. Livingstone couldn't pick the slower bowl and the ball hit his stumps. He only scored 15 runs off 9 balls.

However, he didn't end there. Bumrah registered his name in the record books for a very unique reason. The wicket of Livingstone brought Harry Brook to the crease. But Bumrah was too good for the youngster to handle. India's ace pacer bowled the next five balls at a really good line and Brooks wasn't able to score a single run off them.

As a result, it turned out to be a wicket maiden for Bumrah, and he became the bowler with the highest number of maidens in the history of T20I cricket. He has now bowled nine maiden overs in 58 matches. 

Earlier in the match, England won the toss and chose to bowl first. India started well and added 49 runs for the first wicket, but then lost three quick wickets. Debutant Richard Gleeson bowled brilliantly and ended up with a figure of 3/15 on debut, while Chris Jordan picked up 4/27.

The visitors scored 170/8 in the 20 overs with Ravindra Jadeja remaining not out at 46 off 29 balls.
