NEW DELHI: After an 11-month break due to injury, India’s premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah achieved a remarkable feat in the second T20I against Ireland on Sunday.
While leading the T20I side in the absence of Hardik Pandya, Bumrah played a pivotal role in securing an unassailable 2-0 series lead against Ireland. India defeated Ireland by 33 runs in the seocnd T20I.

In the course of the match, the 29-year-old paceman bowled a total of 4 overs and managed to claim 2 wickets, including one maiden over.

During the final over of the match, Bumrah had to defend 37 runs.
Bumrah bowled a wicket-maiden over, with the final ball resulting in four leg byes.
Bumrah’s accomplishment marked his 10th maiden over in T20I cricket.

With this achievement, he now shares the second spot for the most maiden overs in the history of men’s T20I cricket, alongside his teammate Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Both Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar have recorded 10 maiden overs in their respective T20I careers.

At the top of the list stands Uganda’s spinner Frank Nsubuga who has bowled a total of 15 maiden overs over the course of his T20I career.

“I am feeling good. Today was a little drier. We thought it would get slower and hence batted first. It is very pleasing. It is tough to pick an XI. Great headache to have. Everyone is eager. Everyone is confident. All of us wanted to play for India. Eventually, everyone has to work their way up” Bumrah said after the match.

“If you play with a baggage of expectation, you are under pressure. You have to keep those expectations aside. You are not doing yourself 100 percent justice if you are playing with so many expectations,” he said.
