Let us tell you that there was a debate between Bumrah and Jansen in the second Test. This incident occurred when Jansen threw many shorts balls to Bumrah. Bumrah took his revenge and pitched Jansen cleanly for 7 runs. Bumrah also saw Jansen angry after taking the wicket, but there was no conversation between the two. After the end of the game day, Bumrah was questioned at the press conference. He said he did not speak to Jansen on this test and did not come into contact either. Both teams are trying to play the way they want to play.

Jasprit Bumrah said: ‘I don’t remember talking to him even once (in this match). Whatever happens in the last game, it ends there and we’ve moved on in life. I don’t even remember arguing or making eye contact with him at this match. But yes, we are focusing on what our team has to do, the opposition can do whatever they want. We are trying to follow our procedures and our contribution to get the team in good shape.

Not only did Bumrah take Jansen, but he also took four more wickets for South Africa. Thanks to their explosive 5-42 spell, India outscored the hosts with 210 runs. The Indian team had scored 223 runs in the first innings and gained a 13-run lead. At the end of the game on the second day, India scored 57 runs for the loss of 2 wickets. The hitters who came out were KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Captain Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara came back undefeated.

These 5 Bumrah pitches are also special because after the last match it had come under fire. Bumrah was not effective in the Johannesburg Test. But the fast pitcher didn’t attribute his superior performance to this criticism, saying he didn’t pay “extra” attention to it and kept his focus on his overall preparation.

Jasprit Bumrah said: ‘Not extraordinary. I was just concentrating on what I had to do, my routine and my procedures … or whatever I had to do to prepare for a test match. Nothing out of the ordinary, he wasn’t paying more attention to her. He really wasn’t too angry. I was just focusing on what I wanted to do and trying to be in the present.
