Speaking after the match Jasprit Bumrah said, “It felt good. Usually, you try to analyze the wicket as soon as possible. We realized the wicket was on the slower side so we wanted to bowl hard lengths.

We were trying to make it as difficult as possible. (On how he reads pitches quickly and understands what lengths work) Just being aware I guess. I used to ask a lot of questions when I was young and that helps me now. Now I’m experienced.

In my younger days, they (seniors) were used to being troubled by me sometimes (with questions), but it helps to read the wicket and try different options. (On the slower ball to get rid of Rizwan) We were bowling in the middle overs and I saw Jaddu’s ball was turning, not too much but a little bit.

I count my slower ball as a spinner’s slower ball, one of those days where it came off. (On the ball that got Shadab) A little phase where there was reverse swing, one of the occasions when the white ball was reverse swinging,” he concluded.

India will be playing their next World Cup match against Bangladesh on October 19 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
