Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah likes to play under Virat Kohli’s captaincy. He has said that it has always been great to play under his captaincy (Virat Kohli). It generates a lot of enthusiasm in the team.
Bumrah said: ‘I made my test debut under Virat Kohli’s captaincy. It was always great to play under his direction. They are always there to support you. He brings a lot of enthusiasm to the team.
Jasprit Bumrah played brilliantly on the second day of the ongoing Cape Town Test between India and South Africa. Took 5 wickets in the first South African innings. Due to Bumrah’s strong pitch, the Proteas team was only able to score 210 runs in the first innings. Bumrah made her test debut four years ago in Cape Town.
After the end of the second day’s game in Cape Town, Bumrah said at the press conference: ‘It is very special that I started my Test career from here and I am playing here once again. I’m very happy. Individual performance always makes you happy, it gives more joy when it proves to be decisive in the match.
Due to Bumrah’s brilliant bowling toss, the India team gained a 13-run lead despite scoring fewer runs in the first innings. In India’s second inning, this lead increased to 70. On the third match day, captain Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara will take this lead further.
What goal will be safe for South Africa in the match? In response to this question, Bumrah says: ‘Currently, I cannot distinguish any such magical figure. All I can say is that this wicket is useful for the new ball. The new ball has more stitching here. As the ball ages, the stitching becomes less and it becomes easier for hitters. We just need to build some good bat associations.
