The tag of a ‘big-match player’ is often earned when you perform under pressure on the big stage. India’s Jasprit Bumrah might be close to attaining a similar badge as he led the bowling department from the front after cleaning up dangerous Phil Salt early in the game in the second semi-final.

Winning the toss and electing to field first, Reece Topley and Sam Curran struck early inside the powerplay before a 73-run partnership between Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav stabilized the stage to set up a 172-run target for England. In reply, the Three Lions lost captain Jos Buttler after a decent start to Axar Patel before Bumrah sent the other English opener packing in the fifth over. 

Having faced seven balls and scored just five runs, Salt seemed determined to release the pressure with a no-look attempt on the fourth ball of the fifth over. However, he was startled by the outcome as Bumrah came over the wicket and dished an in-jagged on a good length to beat the inside edge of the bat. The ball clattered onto the leg stump while Salt could only hold the pose for a brief period before strolling back to the dressing room. The dismissal of the dangerous opener sprinkled hope into the Indian camp, leaving the Twitterverse amazed.
