England captain Joe Root also said that Bumrah’s spell changed the course of the match. “Credit should be given to India, they got the ball to reverse swing and it turned out to be a turner,” he said.

Bumrah made his Test debut against South Africa in Cape Town in January 2018 and has been a vital part of the Virat Kohli-led Indian team since then. The English captain said that, ‘It was disappointing not to get anything from today’s match. We thought we had a chance to win. We could have taken more lead in the first innings, and you have to take chances against world class players.
