Jasprit Bumrah recorded his maiden first-class fifty in the second practice Test match against Australia A. Bumrah dragged a short-pitched ball to the fine-leg boundary to accomplish his half-century

Jasprit Bumrah smashed 55 runs from 57 balls. He formed a crucial 71-run last-wicket stand with Mohammed Siraj. This was the Indian pacer's second-highest first-class score. The previous was 16 not out. The bowler has never crossed his highest score of 10* in ODIs and Tests.

With this, Bumrah posted the highest score with an unbeaten 55-run knock from 57 balls. His unbeaten knock consisted of six fours and two sixes. He also shared a 71-run last-wicket stand with Mohammed Siraj to help the visitors scale to 194 in the 49th over.

Bumrah's cameo came at a time when the side was struggling

The leading Indian pacer received is a guard of honor after completing the innings along with Siraj. The entire Indian team stood up and were seen clapping for Bumrah's heroic innings. India's stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane won the toss and opted to bat first at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The middle-order fell cheaply to the hosts.

Bumrah, Siraj, Shaw, and Shubman Gill put up a decent score for the visitors. Sutherland bowled out Shaw for 40 runs off 29 balls. He scored eight boundaries in the innings. Shubman Gill, on the other hand, scored 43 runs off 58 balls before getting dismissed by Cameron Green.

The rest of the Indian line-up including Rahane, Agarwal, Pant, and Hanuma Vihari failed miserably. The stand-in captain, Rahane was caught behind for 4. During that period, India had already lost three wickets.

Many Indian players faced it difficult as they played only once with the pink ball. They played one Test against Bangladesh. India won the match at Eden Gardens in Kolkata by an innings and 46 runs. The visitors were down to 123/9 in the 35th over. The crucial partnership between Bumrah and Siraj got team India to a total of 194.

At the same time, Sean Abbott and Jack Wildermuth were in top form for the Australian side. Abbott picked up three wickets and conceded 46 runs. On the other hand, Wildermuth grabbed three wickets and conceded only 13 runs.

Mitchell Swepson, Harry Conway, and Cameron Green managed to take a wicket each. The hosts scored six runs in 1 overs as the second session of the day came to an end, with Harris and Burns at the crease.
