Jasprit Bumrah, who was drafted into the Leicestershire side, was pitted against the likes of Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Cheteshwar Pujara, etc on Saturday. But the best of the lot was the pacer's duel with the former India captain.

Virat Kohli hit Jasprit Bumrah for a six, a delectable upper-cut, in the 55th over, then a four in the 71st over. But the pacer had the last laugh, getting the big wicket the very next delivery.

Watch it here:

Kohli made 67 off 97 balls with the help of five fours and two sixes. The first of the maximum came in the 44th over, against Sai Kishore.

Bumrah also got a chance to test Cheteshwar Pujara. The Test specialist batter, who had earlier turned up for the county side, made 22 off 53.

At the end of the 89th over, India were 356/7 for a lead of 358 runs. They declared the first innings at 246/8. Leicestershire scored 244 in their first innings.

The rescheduled Test match will be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham from July 1 to July 5. India's tour of England last year was canceled due to COVID-19 cases in the visiting camp hours before the toss in Manchester. India were leading the series 2-1.

The Edgbaston will be followed by three T20Is and three ODIs.

Also, another Indian team, led by Hardik Pandya will play Ireland in a two-match T20I series, on June 26 and 28.
