Jasprit Bumrah’s knockout spell after Lunch on the final day of the Oval Test orchestrated India’s first win at the venue since 1971. In the post-match presser, India’s pace spearhead stressed the importance of shunning the outside noise and directing the energies towards the task at hand while riding high on self-belief. Bumrah’s heroics made for a firm riposte to the detractors who pointed fingers at the champion bowler when he went wicketless in the World Test Championship finale against New Zealand.
