The vice-captain of Team India, Jasprit Bumrah, received appreciation from pacer Mohit Sharma and said that if he is going to lead the Edgbaston Test the myth will be ‘disproved’.

The fast bowlers not being captaining the team ‘taboo’ would be broken against England. Many rumours surfaced on Saturday following the COVID-19 positive test for captain Rohit Sharma.

The pacer went on to say that regardless of the circumstances, the Indian pace attack usually produces solid outcomes.

“The nicest part about our fast bowling attack is that no matter the conditions, you can tell who is trying their hardest by how they are bowling.”

“They are constantly striving to do their best work. The outcomes have thus been favourable for us, and the good news in Birmingham will bode well for us”  Mohit Sharma Added.
