Day 2 of the third and final Test at Cape Town’s Newlands Stadium saw Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah have the last laugh as he knocked out South African pacer Marco Jansen.
In their last match in Johannesburg, Jensen and Bumla had an altercation after the former knocked out a string of bodyguards. The two exchanged a few words before the referee on the field had to separate the two.
The duel between the two continues, but this time, it’s Jensen who strikes and Bumrah doing what he does best. He started rattling Jensen with a couple of bodyguards, which seemed to work for the young man.
Before the coffee break, Bumrah finds one to hold its course, and Jansen has no answer. He was stunned when the stump rolled over in the background. Bumrah looked down at the tall South African bowler as he stepped from the ground.
