07 Nov 2018: Bumrah left furious with Mumbai Indians team-mate Pollard: Know why

Jasprit Bumrah was excellent in the second T20I versus West Indies in Lucknow.

The fast bowler played a crucial role in helping India seal the match by 71 runs.

Bumrah's 2/20 saw him picking the important wicket of celebrated T20 player Kieron Pollard.

However, the antics of the West Indian, who is also his Mumbai Indians team-mate, happened to annoy the pacer. Here's more.

Incident: How did the incident unfold?

An awkward incident took place in the 11th over when West Indies were batting.

JB got the fourth ball to skid off the deck, which climbed on to Pollard.

The batsman managed to top-edge the same.

He hurried on towards the direction to take a catch.

Pollard, who by then was under the ball, only removed his hand at the last moment.

Fact: WATCH: Bumrah unhappy with Pollard's antics

Form: Contrasting forms of Pollard and Bumrah

This is for the second game in succession that Pollard (6) failed to do any justice in the middle order.

The player is out of form and he didn't even get a single over after being disastrous in the first match.

JB, on the other hand, was terrific in both the games.

INDvWI: India thrash West Indies yet again

Meanwhile, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma (111*) gave the best gift to fans, as he slammed his fourth T20I ton and helped India win.

India have sealed the 3-match series 2-0, with one more game to play.

Batting first, India set a target of 196 for WI. In reply, the visitors could only manage 124/9.

The third match is on November 11.
