Marco Jansen and Jasprit Bumrah may spend some time together in the locker room of the Mumbai Indians, but when they face off in the tension of the Johannesburg Rangers, there is little sign of love between the two.After South Africa’s frustration Shardul Thakur made a cameo, The enraged rapids then tilted towards Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah, who was quickly dismissed for a duck.
Bumrah did not take it lightly and seemed to be annoyed by South Africa’s strategy. When the shoulder was hit, he responded to Jensen, pointing at the pitcher and gestured as if he was dusting the shoulder pain.
Jensen didn’t back down either, and soon used bodyguards to cheer on his former Mumbai Indian teammate. Bumrah seemed to be even more angry, and made a further gesture to Jansen, his left arm quickly and not taken lightly. Soon, the players walked towards each other, prompting the referee and other players to intervene.

Bumrah still felt frustrated after the confrontation. Soon, the South African players led by Dean Elgar, who had another confrontation with KL Rahul last night, squeezed around Bumrah, and the referee separated the players again.
I know it’s fun to watch Bumrah pump, but I’m glad he walked away without injury.

Bumrah – Jansen is an upgraded version of the Sreesanth – Nel series. Both bowlers are better than their opponents. It will be interesting to see how Bumrah reacts with the ball.

Marco Jansen bounces Bumrah repeatedly. Hit him. Jason has some follow-up words. Bumrah was smiling and chatting happily. But I am not sure that ending Bumrah is the best plan. Don’t think that South African batsmen will enjoy this from Marco. #INDvSA #SAvIND

Bavuma said something to Pant, and Jansen angered Bumrah. The last game here will be very interesting. Bumrah with the ball and pants behind the stump. #INDvsSA

It is worth noting that Bumrah received a lot of criticism in the England Tour, because he generously used bodyguards against England’s tail. Many people think this strategy is very unprofessional. Then, James Anderson is at the receiving end of Bumrah’s barrage.
Either way, the angry Jasprit Bumrah is bad news for Proteas, who have been battling bats throughout the series and recently.
