Bumrah was asked the same thing after the match and he said the England captain might have thought the ball would swing but he went straight to rattling his off-stump.

I learned to throw reverse swing before the conventional swing – Jasprit Bumrah
The main reason behind Bumrah’s success was his ability to use reverse swing. The pacer bothered the English batsmen and England’s legendary pacer Stuart Broad also praised that Bumrah was using reverse swing spectacularly. Talking about this, Bumrah said that he learned to bowl reverse swing before conventional swing.
“In first-class cricket, if you want to take wickets in India, you have to learn to bowl reverse. I probably learned to play reverse swing earlier than conventional swing because a lot of cricket is played on slow wickets,” Bumrah said.
“Then you understand what you have to do here. You have to find a way, what are the areas you have to attack. So, yes, in the nets, you practice all those skills and try to execute them (to get wickets).”
Bumrah castled last game’s centurion Ollie Pope with a lethal yorker in the innings and the batsman was back in the hut after scoring 23 runs off 55 balls. The pacer spoke about his thought process before bowling that magical delivery to Pope and said:
“At that time, the ball was relatively hard. So yes, there was a certain reverse twist. In the reverse swing, you don’t have to hit magic pitches on every ball.
“So I had played a few deliveries and then a thought occurred to me: what do I bowl? Should I do a long delivery or should I opt for a Yorker? But until then I had not bowled against a yorker. I thought okay, I might as well take a chance on that and it swung around a lot. The execution was good, I am very happy with that.”
On Day 2, the Indian national cricket team was 28/0 with Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal in the middle. India have a lead of 171 runs and they will be hoping to extend it. on day 3.
