The Virat Kohli-led Indian team put on a fantastic performance at The Oval, defeating England by 157 runs to grab an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-match Test series. The match was a thrilling affair, with all four outcomes appearing probable on the final day.
Team India’s bowlers, on the other hand, once again stood out for the team and demonstrated their talent. Jasprit Bumrah, who heads India’s fast bowling unit, spoke about the strategy employed by the team to achieve this success.
Jasprit Bumrah was one of the architects of Team India’s win. He brought India’s victory closer by taking the wickets of Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow. The team’s success, according to Bumrah, is due to their positive attitude.
“We focus on the good things. We want to focus on controllable things and we as a team are a bunch of individuals who are very happy and fun-loving people, not always trying to find needles in all the things,” said Bumrah at a virtual press conference as reported by TOI.
Bumrah’s role in the Test series
In the post-lunch session on the fourth Test match’s last day, Bumrah moved the tide in India’s favour with two crucial wickets. Bumrah stated that the team was committed to fighting till the end. The pacer also expressed his belief that the team’s goal was to bowl in the right places and force a mistake from the opponents.
The IPL and the T20 World Cup are on the horizon. Bumrah is an important member of both his IPL franchise and India’s national team. Many expectations will be placed on him to assist the teams in making an impact at these tournaments. The Indian pacer, on the other hand, is not looking too far ahead and is instead focusing on the present.
