Birmingham | India’s stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah has grasped the batsmen’s failure in the second half for their fifth Test defeat at the hands of England and said they let go of the match after building up pressure in the first three days. Centuries from Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow helped England beat India by seven wickets.
The hosts chased the goal of 378 runs, the biggest chase for them in Test cricket.
Bumrah said after the match: “The beauty of the test cricket is that even though he has played well for three days, it is possible. We could not beat well yesterday and from there the match went out of our JD. Had it not rained in the first “We had won the series. But England played very well.” Bumrah praised Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja for scoring centuries in the first innings.
He said: “Pant and Jadeja got us back in the match with a counter-attack. We had created pressure on the match.” He said he really enjoyed the responsibility as captain, saying, “It was not decided by me. I like responsibility. It was a good challenge, and it is a matter of pride and a great experience to be captain of the team. ” England captain Ben Stokes said his team is changing the way Test cricket is played.
“My job gets easier when players play like this. The hunt is easier when there is clarity in the locker room. The score of 378 was great five weeks ago, but now everything is fine. We’re trying to change the way we play test cricket.
This effort has been going on for the last four to five weeks. We want to give new life to test cricket. Do you want to inspire a new generation, create new fans, leave a mark on test cricket.
Match man Jonny Bairstow, who scored centuries in both innings, said he was never afraid of failing and just wanted to put pressure on the opponent.
“It’s a lot of fun right now,” he said. The last few years have been tough for me, but the last few months have been wonderful. I enjoy it to the fullest. We will lose matches with this option, but it is a very positive cricket brand.
The man in the series Joe Root said he was confident of reaching India’s given goals. As for his form, he said: “We are constantly trying to perform better and also enjoy the game. Johnny’s batting was brilliant and I just wanted to keep giving him a strike.
