India's fast bowling sensation, Jasprit Bumrah, has successfully spearheaded the team's pace battery in the absence of veterans Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami in the Australia tour. The talented bowler is said to be a composed campaigner on the field and is often very poised irrespective of the situation. However, the 27-year-old seemingly looked dejected at one point in time during the India vs Australia 3rd Test and went on to do something that was not received well by the on-field umpire. 

India vs Australia 3rd Test: Umpire Paul Reiffel unimpressed with Jasprit Bumrah's actions

The Indian speedster toiled hard at the Sydney Cricket Ground for his team. The unorthodox pacer also had an additional responsibility of leading an inexperienced pace battery in the crucial Test. The bowler's patience was tested during Australia's second innings, where Steve Smith and Cameron Green stitched together an impressive partnership.

While the two batsmen seemed comfortable in facing the Indian bowlers on the placid wicket, it also took a toll on the fielding side. Jasprit Bumrah, while walking back to his run-up, surprisingly knocked off the bails from the stumps with his hands. Umpire Paul Reiffel was not very pleased with the bowler's behaviour and was seen giving him an angry look. The star seamer had to face the wrath of Australian fans online because of this incident. 

It was an eventful Test match for the Indian contingent where they defied all odds to claim a memorable draw. With injury woes to racial slurs, the visitors tackled all the obstacles purely through cricketing merit and won the hearts of the fans with their gritty outing. However, the Jasprit Bumrah injury news could prove to be the final nail in the coffin for India's fast bowling attack as it is bound to leave a huge void.
