After years of struggling to take down tail-enders, India is finally giving its opposition teams a taste of their own medicine. First, they won an unwinnable series in Australia and today, Bumrah and Shami have just saved India the Test Match.
The partnership between Shami and Bumrah is now 77, taking India's 5th day lead to 259. The team has added 105 runs in just about 25 overs. That's almost 5 runs per over.
Now, when anything this special happens, Indian Twitter finds itself in the midst of it.
