IND VS AUS | Twitter abuzz as brilliant Bumrah executes perfect yorker to send Maxwell packing
Yorkers are a fast bowler's prized weapon and when perfectly delivered, as its difficult to execute, they leave batsmen in a host of problems. In the third ODI between India and Australia, Bumrah showcased his mastery, nailing a flawless yorker to dismiss Maxwell and send him back to the pavilion.
Australia opted to bat, and their innings progressed steadily as every batsman was determined to contribute to the scoreboard in Rajkot which saw the visitors pile on 267 in just 37 overs. Meanwhile, the Indian bowlers were striving to tighten their control over the run rate of the visiting team. Consequently, in the last ball of the 39th over, Jasprit Bumrah delivered an astonishingly perfect yorker that resulted in the dismissal of Glenn Maxwell.
Maxwell attempted to divert the yorker by angling the face of his bat, employing a common technique to direct the ball behind square on the offside. However, the yorker proved to be too swift and precise, slipping beneath Maxwell's bat. This failure to make contact with the ball led to his dismissal and gained a wicket for the Men in Blue.
Twitter erupted in celebration, with users expressing their admiration for Bumrah's exceptional bowling brilliance.

Having a bad day so far, it's so hot in Rajkot, running in and bowling a 142 kph Yorker to Maxwell and cleans him up.
