Been a lot of fun captaining this side: Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah

In India’s 2-0 T20I series win over Ireland, stand-in skipper Jasprit Bumrah finished the week-long trip with figures of four wickets in eight overs, giving away 39 runs, including a maiden 20th over, in the second game.


With fast bowler Prasidh Krishna also taking four wickets and bouncing out batters, India can take a sigh of relief over two of its pace bowling options looking fit and raring to go at the Asia Cup and World Cup after returning from back injuries.

“It’s been a lot of fun [captaining] and it was an honour captaining them. They were enthusiastic and eager even when rain was around. Makes my job easier when players are so confident, and they tell me what to do,” said Bumrah, who also took the Player of the Series award.

He said that thoughts of injuries weren’t crossing his mind while bowling in Ireland. “Not one year, 10-11 months [away from the game]. I don’t think about that [injury]. When you get a chance to captain your side, you always take it. As a cricketer you always enjoy responsibility. All good no complaints.”
