India won by 2 runs, despite the rain! Jasprit Bumrah led from the front and bagged the Player of the Match award

Dublin: Although the rain disappointed the thousands who filled The Village Stadium in Malahide, Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah did not disappoint.

With a win, star pacer Jasprit Bumrah made his debut as India’s T20 captain spectacular. In Dublin, India defeated Ireland by two runs using the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method (DLS). This was a match that India should have won in the run chase had the rain not dampened the fun.

When the game was called off due to rain, India had scored 47 runs for two wickets against a small victory target of 140 runs. The match could not be resumed after that. By becoming India’s captain in this match, Bumrah also achieved a shattering record. He became the first fast bowler to captain India in T20s.

This match was also Bumrah’s comeback after being out of action for 11 months due to injury. He celebrated this with a man of the match performance. In this match, Bumrah has performed admirably as captain. He had shown a good captain’s hand in rotating the bowlers and setting the field.

Through this match, Bumrah showed that he has all the talent to become India’s regular captain in the future. Hardik Pandya, India’s star all-rounder, has been tipped as the country’s next white-ball captain. But Bumrah has shown that he is a step above Hardik in the role of captain. Bumrah took Ireland’s two wickets in his first over. This was given away by four runs. He conceded only six runs in the next over.

After that, Bumrah came to bowl his next spell in the 16th over. He bowled the 19th over to complete his four-over quota. Bumrah gave away 13 runs in the 16th over but only one in the 19th over. In four overs, he took two wickets for 24 runs. However, if we look at Hardik’s captaincy, we can see that he frequently tries to get applause by appearing calm and deliberately tries to avoid risky situations. After becoming captain, Hardik started handling the new ball himself.

Even when the team has wicket-taking specialist fast bowlers, Hardik tries to impress by assuming this role and not giving them the new ball. Hardik not only handles the new ball, but he also ensures that he completes his quota before the death overs. He is aware that the opposition batsmen will attack and try to score quick runs in the death overs. Hardik also fears that this will worsen his bowling status.

It is clear that he is motivated by the goal of gaining praise without conceding more runs. Hardik also has a knack for ‘victimising’ other bowlers in the death overs instead of himself. Despite finishing brilliantly in the first two overs against the Irish team, he was willing to risk himself in the death overs.
