Of all the roles James Anderson has given his country in his glorious career and respect, seamstress, leader, mentor, slipper and entertainer – this is a provocative one that has been the focus of the best part of this series.
With the ball in motion, he tortured India’s best golfers of the century, from Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli , and as if that were not enough, he ignited flares, with flammable characters as well, such as Ravindra Jadeja and Virat Kohli, who continued to shoot up competitions. India – The tournaments in England were seldom in line with the vitriol level of their duel in Australia. But Anderson’s controversy with Kohli and Bumrah could put a weak, flimsy edge on what has historically been an incident without incident.
It started with the participation of generally less annoying staff – always smiling Jasprit Bumrah at the end of the third day. With 10 balls completed, thanks to four no balls, Bumrah went into the fray to soften golfer no. 11 from England. When it ended, Anderson was obviously alarmed.
The first ball was a jumper who exploded in Anderson’s face which the latter tried to avoid but the helmet smiled. Riff music followed and the ball hit the goal. The third ball was also aimed at Anderson’s ribs and somehow the batsman got a piece of wood on him. Then, after bowling a fiery yorker, Bumrah once again returned to short ball mode. Anderson jumped.
This is not the first time Anderson has completed such treatment – Mitchell Johnson made famous just that in the 2013-14 series, not only with Anderson but in the lower order. In the same series, he expressed his dissatisfaction with the method and even complained that he was crazy. “I do not know what a dangerous bowling is. It is personal to take a judge,” he told the BBC. Root even defended the system. “This is a cricket in the test. An attack like you should expect traffic in that area and make sure you can handle it,” he said.
However, unlike Johnson, Bumrah is one of the calmest players on the Indian team and from that point of view, his duel with Anderson came to an end. Then he just follows the orders of his captain. At the end of his entry into England, Bumrah approached Anderson and tapped him on the back. But he was not impressed and quickly whispered a few words to the Indian. After the trial , Ravichandran Ashwin revealed information about the conversation on his YouTube channel.
“The thing was, Jimmy was like, ‘Hey mate! Why are you bowling so fast? Am I doing the same to you? “The beauty of it, it looks like Jimmy said to Boom (Bumrah), ‘All of this, you cone at 80 miles per hour; suddenly as far as I can see, why are you bowling at 90 miles per hour? “Ashwin told India national team coach R Sridhar.
The older off-spinner was surprised by Anderson’s reaction. “What surprises me is this kind of question. I agree, maybe he was shaken. Wearing the helmet was certainly not easy and I sympathize with him, but still such a statement from Jimmy surprised me,” said Ashwin.
In a temporary test match, Kohli showed tactical tactics to aim for the opponent’s biggest victory in the opponent’s battle and won spectacularly. Anderson is not only shaken, his captain Joe Root, who revealed no. 11 in crossbar short ball, attacked personally and lost it tactically when Bumrah came to strike in the second half of India.

Leaving out of the Aussie book
India really took a leaf out of the old Aussie book – target the captain and give up the team. While Root’s striking elegance could save England, the hosts’ chances of success improve significantly when Anderson talks to the ball. So Kohli and company just changed their line of attack and chased Anderson, through the bumper and verbally.
When it comes to providing England’s best bowling with any product, Kohli is expected to take the lead. “You’re cursing me again, aren’t you?” This is not your backyard **. Huni kvak. “This is what old age does to you,” India’s central bank governor told Anderson as India bathed in the second round of talks. The tourists slowly but surely got under the skin of their opponents, which would lead to England sinking on the last day of the trial.
The days of Indian captains who addressed their English counterparts with the first lord are long gone. New India was created when Sourav Ganguly took off his shirt and waved it on the Lord’s balcony. Kohli comes from Ganguly’s captain’s school, which has been confused by some current and former England players.
Stuart Broad, out of action due to a calf injury, criticized Kohli and supported his ally with the new ball. Nick Compton, a former England player, called Kohli “the most stubborn person” with a tweet. Another issue was that Compton did not play against Australia and suffered mental breakdown, but England Root played into the hands of its rival by letting India’s aggression influence it.

Repeat the offender
Anderson is not a saint. He has a history of spades on the field with his opponents’ players. In 2014, on the second day of the first Trent Bridge trial, where players were returning for lunch, Anderson said Jadeja had used it in her own currency. This became the topic of the series.
At Ashes Down Under 2013-14, there was a frenzy between the speed of England and the Australian Michael Clarke, where the stump microphone picked up Clarke and told Anderson: “Be prepared for a broken arm”. The screams of 2013-14 showed how England retreated when Australia launched an attack from the front through the speed of Mitchell Johnson and proverbs.

When it comes to the ethical question of speed bumps avoiding each other’s bowlers, it’s a long time ago. Until the beginning or middle of the eighties, batsmen were almost unprotected and tail beats barely managed to hit. Now the batsmen are defending from head to toe and a lower order has broken through. Anderson has over 1,200 running tests and fifty. Also, India’s tail end has never received good treatment from competitors.
In 1976, the then captain of the Westman Islands, Clive Lloyd, ordered a “bloodbath” in Sabina Park and knew full well that India could not respond quickly. Syed Kirmani, a former Indian player, still remembers how Michael Holding threw him two shots in a row at Chepauk in 1983, because the cone was unhappy with an interesting decision.
Returning to modern times, Root’s tite for tat ‘approach to Lord Mark Wood saw him spreading Bumrah and Shami on the bouncers, with six farmers in the deep. Bumrah was hit on the helmet and he responded with a focused four. Both Bumrah and Shami were happy to tackle short bowling while winning 89 races. The plot of Roots dropped threats of bowling and a leg before a fight. The England captain later admitted that he had lost the ground.
The biggest benefit of India’s victory was that they considered England a surrender and forced the home side to carry a spiritual scar in the next three games. How England will react (or take revenge) and whether India will continue to use this method in this series will be an interesting story. Either way, what has been a tradition for warm (controversial) competition has heated up.

The Burnley lip
Anderson many collisions
The English fast lodge reported in its memoir that it collided with Michael Clarke in the locker room after the 2006 ash test in Adelaide.
At the 2013 Ash Test in Brisbane, the judges had to intervene, as Anderson and Clarke had a heated argument. “Be prepared for a broken arm,” the stump student said in a musical with Clarke in a conversation with a traveler in England, and the former paid 20 percent of his campaign fee. But Shane Warne, who as a commentator has access to all the stub micro albums, tweeted that Anderson threatened the pioneer George Bailey with a punch in the face.
In 2014, during a lunch break on the second day of the first Trent Bridge trial, Anderson took part in an argument with Ravindra Jadeja and the case led to the appointment of an ICC judge, who quickly forgave. But India needed a video and game judge, David Boon, to pay 50 percent of the fee against Jadeja.
When England first joined the Lord, Anderson was not good with the currency jumper Jasprit Bumrah and returned to India’s speedster after the race. He told Bumrah, “Hey woman! Why are you bowling so fast? Am I doing the same thing to you? In all this while you’re bowling at 80 miles; I suddenly see, why are you bowling at 90? mph? “
Kohli later told him: “You’re swearing to me again aren’t you? This is not your back country.
