Asked if the memory of being reduced to 36 in the first Test would be fresh in his mind, then what would be the batsmen’s plan, Bumrah replied, “We are not thinking much ahead. We will concentrate on one session at a time. Bumrah said, ‘We don’t want to be mentally conservative in batting, we want to be positive. Don’t want to be careless but playing with confidence will be our motive.

We wanted to take advantage of the moisture – Bumrah
Captain Ajinkya Rahane made a good decision and put Ashwin to bowl in the first hour of the game. To this, Bumrah said, ‘When we were bowling in the morning there was some moisture on the wicket, so you saw Ashwin and Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja) getting some spin. “He said after the first day’s game ended,” because we wanted to take advantage of the moisture, we were trying to use them, he (Ashwin) was getting a good bounce. “
Shane Warne praised Rahane
Rahane was also praised for his fielding admiration, which included a veteran like Shane Warne and Bumrah said that in the second season, the bowlers changed the line length as the pitch was getting easier to bat. He said, ‘There was a constant discussion between the bowlers and the captain. The wicket changed after the first session. It got better for batting in the second season and the moisture was gone. Bumrah, however, refused to accept the suggestions that it has been India’s best bowling performance of the first day in Tests since he joined the team.
