India vs England Test Series: In the recently concluded Test series between India and England, apart from the battle between the ball and the bat, there was also a war of words between the players. Players of both the teams sledged fiercely on each other. This confrontation between the players was maximum during the Lord’s Test. In this match, there was a heated argument between English fast bowler James Anderson and Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. What actually happened between these two, Indian team all-rounder Shardul Thakur has revealed it.
Anderson abused Bumrah – Shardul
Shardul Thakur said in a conversation with the English newspaper Indian Express, “We were trying to attack James Anderson. Something that happened during the Lord’s Test and went on till the Oval Test. I was told later that Anderson did something to Bumrah. Said that which he should not have said. I was told that he had abused Bumrah.”
Let us tell you that in this series, the English bowlers bowled a lot of bouncers against the Indian tailenders. Indian bowlers also gave a befitting reply to the lower order batsmen of England, especially Anderson. Shardul further said that Indian tailenders are often targeted with such balls and hence it is appropriate for them to target the lower order batsmen of rival teams with the same strategy.
Shardul said, “Our tailenders also have to face bouncers when we go abroad. In Australia, Natarajan was bowled by bouncers by Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins even though he knew this guy played first-class cricket. I haven’t batted much either.”
He further said that when the talents of the opposing team come to bat, why can’t we throw bouncers to them? Why don’t we bowl bodyline? We are not playing to please anyone. We also go abroad to win.
India was ahead 2-1 and then the last Test was canceled
