India captain Rohit Sharma applauded bowler Jasprit Bumrah for his’ magnificent effort in the second Test against Sri Lanka.

Bumrah got a significant match total of 8/47 in India’s 238-run pink-ball Test win over Sri Lanka at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, along with a maiden five-wicket haul at home in the first innings, succeeding on a track where spinners were anticipated to do well.

Rohit Sharma emphasized how Bumrah can play effectively in a variety of situations, regardless of whether they are at home or abroad.

“He has a good understanding of the situation, which is a benefit.” Certain skill sets are required to bowl on certain pitches, and he appears to be bringing those technical skills into the circumstances and game, depending on the pitch’s offer.”

“We saw a different kind of pitch in Mohali, although he was still effective and got a few wickets.” This was an entirely different pitch (in Bengaluru). It was really helpful to spinners, spinning and bouncing, all was going on for spinners.”

Bumrah, but on the other side, with his skills, comes in and hits the wickets all the time. He is always in play whenever there is any lateral movement. I thought he did a good job of demonstrating that.

When asked how often Bumrah will appear in Test matches at home, Rohit Sharma stated:

Sharma stated that the pacer will be seen in more Indian matches in the future.

“In terms of red-ball cricket, Bumrah hasn’t played much in India.” With two against England and two against India, he’s played four Test matches in India, which isn’t much. But, bearing in mind the effort of the bowlers, we must rotate these men regularly when playing Test cricket.”

“As a result, we have to look after them, and he’s missed a lot of games.” When you talk to someone like him, you can tell he’s very eager to make an impact in Test cricket. He aspires to play a significant amount of Test cricket. There will be a lot of Bumrah in the next months and years.

India beat Sri Lanka by 238 runs in the second Test to wrap up the day-night match in Bengaluru on day three and win the two-Test series 2-0 on Monday.
