IND vs ENG 4th Test: Shane Warne hails Jasprit Bumrah’s hostile bowling, calls it ‘Spell of the summer so far’: Legendary spinner Shane Warne on Monday showered praise on Jasprit Bumrah after the bowler became the fastest Indian pacer to reach 100 wickets in the longest format of the game. Bumrah achieved the feat in the ongoing fourth Test against England when he removed Ollie Pope for 2 in the second session of the final day.
Warne termed the outstanding bowling by Bumrah as the “spell of the summer.” “Take a bow @Jaspritbumrah93! That spell of 18.104.22.168 was outstanding and the spell of the summer so far. A class above any other fast bowler in this test match on a flat wicket! Outstanding,” Warne tweeted. Former England skipper Michael Vaughan in the second session predicted that India would go 2-1 up.

Former India bowler Irfan Pathan is next on the list, having reached 100 wickets in 28 matches while pacer Mohammad Shami occupies the fourth spot.
