Fresh from a brilliant bowling spell in the must-win game against South Africa,  Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave India the best possible start in the ongoing second semifinal of the Champions Trophy against Bangladesh by castling Soumya Sarkar’s leg-stump in the very first over.

The right-arm pacer began the over with two out swinging deliveries to in-form opener Tamim Iqbal before the latter scampered for a single on the fourth ball, bringing his partner Soumya Sarkar on the strike. The left-handed batsman shouldered arm the first ball he faced from Bhuvneshwar which was full and around the fourth-stump. However, Soumya Sarkar could not resist playing a shot when the India pacer bowled a similar delivery which was missing the stump by a good margin. With his foot planted firmly in the crease, the batsman threw away his bat at the ball and paid the price for it as the ball, after taking the inside edge of the bat, sent his leg-stump for a ride.

Here is a clip of that wicket:

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
