His teammate KL Rahul does not understand why this Indian fast bowler’s 9 wickets in the first Test against England which ended in a draw here is being called his ‘comeback’. In the World Test Championship final against New Zealand, Bumrah was not in the mood at all. Apart from this, his performance in the series against England in Australia tour and Indian ground was also not strong.

praise for pace attack
KL Rahul praised the Indian pacer who took 20 wickets in the match.

It was believed that the team winning the toss would be in the advantage and we bowled with utmost discipline.
‘Reward for the right plan’
KL Rahul said, ‘The way Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah started and Shardul (Thakur) and Mohammad Siraj continued it, how they all worked together and in the right place bowled. The way he stuck to his plan, he got the reward.
‘It was a challenging pitch’
Rahul said that the batting unit performed well between breaks due to rain in difficult conditions. “It was a challenging pitch and the kind of weather, going out and coming back again and again was not easy for us to maintain concentration. It is challenging to go out and come back again and again. Rahul said that after sitting out for more than two years, he is happy to play Test cricket.
