Tried to hit the seam as much as I could – Jasprit Bumrah on his game plan against Pakistan
10 Jun, 2024 By Editor

Team India seized a thrilling victory against their arch-rivals Pakistan to restore their dominion at the top of the points table. A stellar showdown from Jasprit Bumrah seized the day for the Men in Blue as he registered figures of 4-0-14-3.

His exploits for the day included the prized scalps of Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed while his miserly bowling shoehorned Pakistan into a tight corner from which they could never break free. He was also the Player of the Match for the second consecutive time as Team India bolstered their grip of the top of the group table.

Talking at the post-match presentation, Bumrah said, “It feels really good. We felt we were a little under and the wicket got a little better after the sun came out. We were really disciplined so it feels good. Tried to hit the seam as much as I could, tried to be as clear as I could with my execution and it all came out well so I felt happy.”

He concluded by saying, “Felt like we were playing in India, really happy with the support and that gives us energy on the field. We focus on the now. We’ve played two games and played really well. You stick to your processes and look to play well.”
