Jasprit Bumrah Celebrates Series Win
India’s captain, Jasprit Bumrah, lauded the young, confident players for their contribution to the team’s victory in the T20 series against Ireland on Wednesday. Due to rain, the third T20 was cancelled, resulting in India clinching the series 2-0.
Jasprit Bumrah’s Return to the Field
I’m delighted to be back and playing cricket. Disappointment kicks in when you are eagerly waiting for a game. I didn’t expect the cancellation; the weather was fine in the morning. Leading the team is an honor, and everyone was very keen and enthusiastic. Whenever you get an opportunity to lead your team, anyone would love to do so.
The Captain’s Perspective
As a cricketer, you always desire responsibility. Everything is good, no complaints on the fitness front. When players are so confident and they tell me what needs to be done, it makes my job easier,” Bumrah remarked during the post-match presentation. “From our side, we played good cricket in bits.
Insights from Ireland’s Captain
It has many positives, but it is about ending games. Hopefully we’ll learn,” said Ireland captain Paul Stirling. “It’s great to compete against India and play in front of a big crowd. It would be even more satisfying if we saw some new faces tonight. This is now a build-up for the next 10 months,” he added.
