India scripted a stunning victory against England in the third match that took place in Ahmedabad. Though the pink ball Test is known to support the seamers, something different came up on the table on the match day. Spinners led the bowling attack from the front and scalped the majority portion of wickets. Talking about Indian spinners, they took a combined 19 wickets in a two-day Test affair that ended on February 25.
In the same light, Indian pacers, including the star pacer Jasprit Bumrah didn’t have to bowl even a single over in the 2nd innings of the game. Axar Patel bagged six wickets under his belt while Ravi Ashwin grabbed three, and the last one went to Washington Sundar who got to bowl only three balls. It was seen that Bumrah talked about workload management in the 3rd Test itself, where he had to remain on the field without bowling most of the time.
“Bumrah said I’m getting workload management while playing the game, and Ishi said ‘I’m playing my hundredth game and not getting a bowl. Eventually, he (Washington Sundar) was happy that he got three balls in the whole game. He didn’t get any with the bat also – poor guy. Bizarre game – I’ve never been part of a Test match where things have moved so quickly,” said Kohli in the post-match presentation.
Jasprit Bumrah not available for the 4th Test match
India has taken a 2-1 lead in the four-match Test series, and the result of the fourth match will be too significant in getting a final spot against New Zealand in the World Test Championship finale. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah has stated that he would not be available for the selection of the 4th Test due to personal reasons, and that is why he has been released out of the pool.
“Jasprit Bumrah made a request to BCCI to be released from India’s squad ahead of the fourth Test owing to personal reasons. Accordingly, the fast bowler has been released, and he will not be available for selection for the fourth Test,” said BCCI in a release.
