If Sunday started with P.V. Sindhu decimating Nozomi Okuhara 21-7, 21-7 in the final of the World Championships in Basel, it ended with Jasprit Bumrah destroying a hapless West Indies batting line-up with a fierce spell of fast bowling (5/7). And in between, all-rounder Ben Stokes played the role of Superman to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat for England in the third Ashes Test at Headingley.
Making and breaking records is part and parcel of a sportsperson”s life. And in today”s world of social media coverage, no achievement is overlooked or misses hogging its share of limelight. But it was the sheer turn of back-to-back events that made Sunday all the more special and gave fans just the adrenaline rush that they would have wished for after a long and busy week in schools, colleges and the workplace.
