Wasim Jaffer, Jasprit Bumrah

Ravichandran Ashwin broke the stand by dismissing Crawley for 45 before Duckett and Ollie Pope steadied the ship again. They took the score past the 100-run mark and looked set to take England into a position of strength before Jasprit Bumrah turned the game on its head.

Wasim Jaffer praises Jasprit Bumrah:
