Bumrah hit five batsmen in an innings for the third time in Test cricket, taking six wickets in Melbourne
Although Bumrah has taken five wickets in an innings of Test cricket before this, the six wickets he has taken in Melbourne are special. Let’s tell you why this is –
Bumrah Did The Best Performance
With six wickets in Melbourne, Jaspreet Bumrah hired five batsmen in an innings for the third time in Test cricket. Bumrah got five wickets in Melbourne for the first time. Not only Melbourne, but this is also their first five-wicket haul on Australia’s land. Before this, Bumrah hunted five-five batsmen in an innings on the ground of South Africa and England. Not only that, but this performance in Melbourne was also performed by Bumrah’s Best Test Performance.

Bumrah’s Five Wicket Haul
Bumrah was the first to hit 5 wickets for 54 runs in the Johannesburg Test during the tour of South Africa, and in the Trent Bridge Test match on England tour, he took 5 wickets for 85 runs and now he scored 6 wickets for 33 runs in the Melbourne Test and made history.
Bumrah Hunted These Batsmen
Bumrah hit Australia opener Marcus Harris (22) at Ishant’s wicket. After this, he made Shaun Marsh (19) an LBW out at the best slower yorker. Travis Head (20) Bumrah made bold. Australia captain Tim Paine (22) also became a victim of Bumrah. Nathan Lyon then completed his third five-wicket haul with LBW off zero, but Bumrah did not stop here, giving Josh Hazlewood a chance to open up the account, the Australian innings put on 151 runs.
After performing such a good performance, Bumrah is being praised in the cricket world. You see yourself, not only the cricket fans but also the former players, what are you writing about Bumrah:-
What an outstanding bowling effort from India and a really special effort from Jasprit Bumrah. He has been the best bowler on display across both sides by some distance and has put India in a really dominating position #AusvInd pic.twitter.com/sP3A05b4Ti

What a difference Jasprit Bumrah has made. I feel he has made the difference for the Indian attack from being very good to outstanding. 292 is a huge lead and India would be sensing one hand on the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Need to not give Australia a chance pic.twitter.com/GPTjxuEJ8f
