Jasprit Bumrah had an off day with the ball during the second ODI against New Zealand at the Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday. He was at the receiving end right through the contest and also failed to deliver at the death overs where he is normally at his lethal best. At the backend of the New Zealand innings, Ross Taylor and Kyle Jamieson toyed with the Indian bowling line-up as Bumrah who bowled the final over ended up giving away 14 runs.
The star pacer finished with figures of 0/64 in his 10 overs at an economy rate of 6.40. As the youngster had an ordinary day at the office even the fans were not impressed either.
Just like the second ODI, Bumrah had also gone wicketless in the previous one as well where he ended up giving away 53 runs as the Kiwis took the Indian bowlers to the cleaners to chase down a stiff t 348 and draw first blood. The fans came forward to criticize the pacer after he was off-colour in the must-win contest.

btw Bumrah looks out of form
Something wrong with Bumrah. He is not putting his 100 percent on the field. Needs to get his act together quickly. #INDvsNZ— Amar R G (@AmarRG3) February 8, 2020
However, there were fans who backed the speedster as well.
Bumrah had been good in t20's he played in New Zealand. One bad series can't change anything. Waiting for him to come back soon— Tina (@Tina41894744) February 8, 2020
