Jasprit Bumrah wasn’t even born when India last won a Test match in Melbourne, way back in 1981. But the Indian pacer is happy to have played his bit in the side’s convincing victory against Australia on Sunday.

“To play Test cricket is a great feeling: be it Boxing Day or any other day. I made my India debut in Australia, so great feeling,” Bumrah said.

“I always focus on consistency. When you have so many options, you may get confused. Someday you get wickets, someday another mate will, but we don’t think about those,” he said.

“We bowl a lot in Ranji Trophy cricket, and it pays off. When I made my ODI debut, I always just wanted to play Test cricket,” he said.
