The International Cricket Council (ICC) has punished Jasprit Bumrah who has been found guilty of breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct. The incident happened on day 4 of the IND vs ENG Hyderabad Test wherein, Jasprit Bumrah tried to block Ollie Pope’s way after being frustrated by India not clinching a wicket.

Indian captain Rohit Sharma’s tactics in Test Cricket have been under the scanner ever since the hosts blew up a 190-run lead against England and conceded 420 runs in the 2nd innings to lose the Test by 28 runs. Team India’s problems seem to be rising by the day as Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is all set to be ruled out of the 2nd Test match after sustaining a hamstring injury in the 1st Test.
