Umpire Ignores Jasprit Bumrah's Handshake, Awkward Moment

India secured a dominant victory over England in their T20 World Cup semi-final clash in Guyana. The match proved to be one-sided, with Rohit Sharma and his team claiming a commanding 68-run win. They now advance to the final, where they will meet South Africa.

India defended 172 runs against England, bowling them out for 103 in 16.4 overs in a rain-affected match. Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav shone with three-wicket hauls each, supported by Jasprit Bumrah’s two wickets. Rohit Sharma’s half-century (57) powered India to 171/7 in 20 overs, while Chris Jordan impressed for England with three wickets.

After an eventful match filled with drama and thrilling action, a viral video captured a significant post-game moment. Indian players gathered to commend the umpire for a well-officiated game. However, amidst this, the umpire unintentionally overlooked Bumrah, who stood nearby. Despite briefly acknowledging him, the umpire proceeded to shake hands with other players, inadvertently snubbing the bowler.

Arshdeep’s three-wicket haul made him India’s top wicket-taker in a single T20 World Cup edition with 15 scalps, followed closely by Bumrah (13 in 2024), RP Singh (12 in 2007), and R Ashwin (11 in 2014). India’s latest victory extends their T20I winning streak to 11* (Dec 2023-Jun 2024), their second-longest streak in the format, after their best of 12 from Nov 2021 to Feb 2022.

India’s victory in this T20 World Cup marked their seventh win, placing them second in most wins in a single edition, just behind South Africa with eight wins in 2024.
