Following these key dismissals, fans celebrated Bumrah's performance on X (formerly known as Twitter) with the trend 'Boom Boom.'
In the ICC Men's ODI World Cup 2023 Final against Australia at Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium, Jasprit Bumrah, recovering from a challenging first over that conceded 15 runs, redeemed himself by securing two crucial wickets within the Powerplay.
His first breakthrough came in the 4.3rd over, dismissing Mitchell Marsh for 15, caught by keeper KL Rahul. Bumrah delivered a short-of-a-length ball outside off stump, enticing Marsh into a cut shot that resulted in an under edge, cleanly pouched by KL.
Bumrah's second victim was batter Steve Smith, who, potentially, could have saved himself with a review. Bumrah cleverly deceived Smith with a well-disguised off-cutting slower delivery. Despite having a discussion with partner Travis Head, Smith opted not to review, and the finger went up. Subsequent replays revealed that the impact was outside the off stump, leaving questions about the decision.

As of the current update, 12 overs were completed, and Australia reached 68 runs while losing three wickets. India aims to continue taking wickets and restrict Australia after setting a target of 240 runs in the 1st innings.
