Jasprit Bumrah Yorker |

Team India's pacer Jasprit Bumrah pulled off a sensational yorker to remove England batter Ollie Pope during Day 2 of the second Test at DR YS Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on Saturday, January 3.

Ollie Pope was looking well set until Bumrah was brought into the attack in the 28th over of the India's first innings bowling. Pope was batting on 23 off 54 balls when he faced a reverse swing yorker from Indian pacer on the fifth ball of the over. Bumrah's sensational yorker landed at the base of the stumps, two of which got rattled.

England batter was trying to defend the yorker but the ball already passed the bat and hit the stumps. Pope was visibly frustrated by his dismissal as he punched the bat while walking back to pavilion. Ollie Pope's wicket was crucial for Team India as he was looking to build his innings, replicating his performance in the 1st Test in Hyderabad.

Bumrah picked his first wicket of the innings by dismissing Joe Root for just 5 runs. Indian pacer delivered the ball outside off-stumps and edged the bat of former England captain, which got into the hands of Shubman Gill who was fielding at first slip.

Thereafter, Jasprit Bumrah bowled out Ollie Pope with a yorker for 23 at 136/4 to put India in commanding position.

However, Bumrah's sensational in-swinging yorker to rattle Pope's defence not just received a loud cheer from the crowd but also sent internet into frenzy. Many cricket fans on social media, especially X (formerly Twitter) called it as 'Yorker of the Year'.
