After Jasprit Bumrah sent England's two top-order batters back to the hut in the early phase of the first innings, Umesh Yadav then dismissed Joe Root before scalping another couple of wickets on the second day morning. The Vidarbha pacer was the best bowler for the Indian side in the Test, which surprised Michael Holding a fair bit. The legendary Windies pacer stated that both Bumrah and Umesh bowled with pretty good control.
"Yadav surprised me a little bit because I didn't expect him to be a little bit more effective than Bumrah and I think he did. Bumrah bowled some fantastic deliveries and both of them showed pretty good control," Holding said on Sky Sports.
"What disappointed me after the first hour was the fact that they didn't have anyone to continue the pressure – Thakur came in and bowled but he's not the type that is going to get wickets like Bumrah and Yadav. There just wasn't anything there and he's just not going to be very effective under these conditions."
India bundled England out for 289, conceding a 99-run lead thanks to a late Chris Woakes onslaught.
