Jasprit Bumrah talked about his return and said that he didn’t feel nervous and was happy with the way he bowled. He also talked about how as a leader he thought about other players as well. Speaking after that match, he said: 

“Felt very good, so many sessions I did at the NCA, didn’t feel I missed out a lot or was doing something new. Credit to the staff, they kept me in good spirits. You are not thinking about yourself, you are thinking about others out there. Not really nervous but very happy. There was some swing upfront so we wanted to use it. Luckily we won the toss and it was coming out fine. 

There was some help due to the weather, so very happy. In every game, you would want more. After a crisis, they played well, credit where it is due. Even when you win, there are areas to improve on. Everybody is very confident, they are very well prepared. I think the IPL also helps. It is always good, wherever we go, they support us, that helps us to keep the spirit high.”

Jasprit Bumrah will be next seen in action when India will take on Ireland in the second match on Sunday (20th August).
