Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah survived a bad record in ODI International. In the first ODI of the series in Sydney, Australia scored 374 for 6 wickets in 50 overs thanks to captain Aaron Finch (114) and Steve Smith (105). Barring Mohammed Shami, no other Indian bowler was particularly impressive.
In the match for India in Sydney, Shami took 3 wickets for 59 runs while Bumrah, Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal took 1-1 wickets. While Bumrah lured 73 runs in 10 overs, Saini gave away 83 runs. Chahal then took 89 runs in 10 overs.

Bumrah took the wicket of Finch, the captain of the host team, but he got this wicket after 282 balls in One Day International. Earlier, in 2008, there was a wicket blow after a gap of 283 balls with former Indian bowler Praveen Kumar.
Bumrah survived with just one ball from Praveen’s uncontested record. This year, Bumrah has had to struggle a lot in international ODIs, having taken just 2 wickets in 66.1 overs.
