Jaffer praised the Indian bowling assault saying, “(Jasprit) Bumrah and Shami are an incredible opening bowling pair. Within the second ODI as effectively, they beat the bat fairly a number of occasions. England had been fortunate that the bowlers didn’t discover the perimeters. The bowlers have accomplished their job. Even Yuzvendra Chahal has impressed. Hardik Pandya has nearly made a contribution. They should take accountability within the third one-dayer as effectively.”
