That's the beauty of Test cricket: Jasprit Bumrah
After getting defeated by England in the final Test match of the series, Jasprit Bumrah shared a lot in the post-match presentation about their performance in this game. "I won't go that far ahead (of calling himself an all-rounder).
That's the beauty of Test cricket, even if you have three good days. We fell short with the bat yesterday and that is where we let the opposition in to let the match slip away from us. Ifs and buts can always be there," Jasprit Bumrah was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"If you go back, if there was no rain in the first match, we could have won the series. But England played really well.
We have drawn the series and both teams played very good cricket and it was a fair result. Pant takes his chances. He and Jaddu got us back into the game with their counter-attack. We were ahead in the game," he added.
"He takes his chances, backs himself and very happy for him. Dravid is always there to guide us and back us. We could have been a little straighter in our bowling lines and use the variable bounce.
The captaincy future is not what I decide. I like the responsibility. It was a good challenge, a new challenge. It was an honour to lead the team and a great experience," he further added.
Netizens on Twitter have started to troll the Indian team and Virat Kohli after getting defeated by the hosts at Edgbaston Test. However, the series has ended in a draw and India will look to seal the upcoming limited-overs series against England.
