Former spinner Monty Panesar has fiercely criticized his own team England for his bad behavior on the field with Jasprit Bumrah. At the same time, he said that England’s bet backfired. They did not know what would be the consequence of teasing Virat Kohli’s player? Kohli never forgives. Let us tell you that in the Lord’s Test, the Indian team defeated England by a huge margin of 151 runs. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami had turned the dice of the match by sharing an 89-run partnership.
Team India did amazing, won the Lord’s and took the lead in the series
It’s hard to tease Virat and his team.
He further said – England started but it had the opposite effect and all the credit goes to Virat. England was scared of the Indian team. On the 5th day when he got Rishabh Pant out, he thought he would also get Shami and Bumrah out cheaply. But everything turned upside down for England. You cannot play with India. Virat and his team back the tampering firmly.
Silverwood’s idea was to go sledding
Panesar credited the entire matter to coach Silverwood. He said- I am sure that all this was done by England coach Chris Silverwood. It was his idea, let’s trouble India’s No 10 and 11, but it all proved fatal for England. Bumrah currently leads the list of highest wicket-takers for the series with 12 wickets in 2 Tests.
This is how Bumrah started sledging
It is noteworthy that after the early dismissal of Rishabh Pant on the final day of the second Test at Lord’s, the British wanted to get out Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami early in the Indian lower order. Mark Wood was the first player to introduce sledding. He bowled a short-pitched delivery on Bumrah’s helmet. And, this is where the matter started.
Apart from showering bouncers, the England cricketers started sledging Bumrah and Shami in an attempt to distract them. Jos Buttler was also one of the cricketers to exchange words with Bumrah. But this did not affect the Indian pace duo, as they converted a 89-run partnership for the ninth wicket and helped India set a target of 272 runs for the hosts, enough to beat England .
Kohli does not forgive, Bumrah was bet to sledge it upside down.. Monty Panesar got angry on his own team
