Why did Bumrah hug Siraj?
Jasprit Bumrah, who leads the Indian bowling attack, could not play in the Brisbane Test due to injury. In his absence, Siraj played Bumrah’s role well. Bumrah must have been happy that the responsibility he entrusted to this young fast bowler, he fulfilled it. It seemed that Bumrah had more happiness than Siraj on taking 5 wickets.
