The recent move from the management team of India and BCCI came into being when the fans of India have been looking forward to seeing Bumrah make his test debut in India. So far, the pace bowler has played around 12 Tests when he was away from his home. During that time, Bumrah had taken around 62 wickets. In addition to this, Bumrah addition stats is around 19.24.
On the other hand, the 12 test cricket games were reportedly played on distinctive foreign grounds such as South Africa – 3 Matches, England – 3 Matches, West Indies – 2 Matches, Australia – 4 Matches. It is easier to gain wickets in these ground as they support the pacers. In addition to this, Bumrah is one of the top performers of India who has already played in the conventional white uniform.
