IND vs BAN, World Cup: Jasprit Bumrah's toe-crusher to Mahmudullah puts laser-guided missile to shame | WATCH

Jasprit Bumrah has equalled India's legendary allrounder Kapil Dev in terms of the most wickets taken by an Indian in ODI World Cup history. Bumarh has grabbed 28 scalps and recorded the feat in his 13th World Cup game. On the other hand, Kapil took 26 matches to snare 28 scalps in the tournament.

Jasprit Bumrah is one of the finest exponents of yorker in world cricket at the moment and the 29-year-old once again displayed how excellent he is when it comes to the execution of the lethal delivery in the World Cup game against Bangladesh at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Thursday, October 19.

Bumrah's corker on the second ball of the 50th over of Bangladesh's innings brought an end to Mahmudullah's cameo. In a fine display of craft, India's pace spearhead nailed a toe-crusher with pinpoint accuracy akin to a laser-guided missile headed to destroy its target.

The ball cannoned into the base of the middle stump and even a set Mahmudullah wasn't good enough to keep it out. The Bangladesh veteran was prepared with a high backlift to launch him down the ground and also for a short-pitched delivery as he was sitting deep in his crease but Bumrah who has been plying his trade for quite some time now disturbed Mahmudullah's woodwork without making much fuss.

Bumrah will certainly remember the game against Bangladesh for a very long time as he equalled India's former allrounder and the 1983 World Cup-winning skipper Kapil Dev to become India's joint-fifth leading wicket-taker in ODI World Cup history with 28 wickets to his credit.
