Ire vs Ind - Jasprit Bumrah's roaring first over on return to international cricket

Jasprit Bumrah returned to international cricket after a year out due to injury, and immediately made an impact. He struck twice in his first over in the first T20I against Ireland, even as the over stared with a boundary. This is how ESPNcricinfo’s ball-by-ball commentary recorded the over.

Not a good start for Bumrah, a great start for Balbirnie. Full and straight and just a gentle nudge behind square sees the ball race away as Ireland get off the mark

BOOOOOM! Knocks him over! Full outside off, seaming in to take the inside edge onto the stumps as Balbirnie hangs his bat out limply

Lorcan Tucker
