During the World Cup match between India and Afghanistan, Jasprit Bumrah celebrated his dismissal of Ibrahim Zadran by replicating footballer Marcus Rashford’s signature ‘temple point’ celebration.
In the ongoing India vs. Afghanistan match at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, Jasprit Bumrah provided the crucial breakthrough after Afghanistan’s openers, Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmanullah Gurbaz, had given their team a solid start at 28-0 in the initial six overs. Bumrah entered the attack to bowl the second over, and after an initial boundary from Zadran’s edge, he adjusted his length effectively.
His fourth delivery was a subtle masterpiece, pitching around off and moving slightly, leaving Zadran with no option but to cautiously defend. The edge found its way to wicketkeeper KL Rahul, leading to Bumrah’s exuberant celebration. His unique ‘temple point’ gesture, likely signifying a tactical victory, was a clear homage to England’s football star, Marcus Rashford.
Following Zadran’s departure, Afghanistan quickly lost two more wickets – Gurbaz to Pandya and Rahmat Shah to Thakur. Afghanistan’s captain, Hashmatullah Shahid had won the toss and chose to bat first in Delhi.
India is eyeing their second victory in the 2023 ODI World Cup, seeking a strong start against Afghanistan. Their previous match saw them convincingly defeat Pat Cummins’ Australian team, setting a positive tone for their campaign.
