The first match of the five-match Test series between India and England in Nottingham ended in a draw. On the last day of the match it was raining so hard that not a single ball was thrown the whole day, forcing the umpires to declare the Test a draw. The match was good for Indian fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah and he took 9 wickets in a spectacular performance. After the match, a question was asked about opener KL Rahul, in which he was surprised. The match proved to be very good for Rahul and he scored more runs for the team in the first innings.

Let me tell you, Bumrah was not in rhythm in the final of the World Test Championship against New Zealand. Despite this, his performance in the tour of Australia and the home series against England was not impressive. Asked what it would look like when Bumrah returned to the farm after the match, Rahul expressed surprise. At a post-match press conference, Rahul said, ‘Sir, I don’t know why you are saying that Bumrah is back. They have proven themselves at all times, in every match, in every situation and they are our number one bowler. We are happy that they are still doing what they have been doing since the first Test.

Rahul, who had already spoken about his batting two days ago, praised the fast bowling attack for taking 20 wickets in the match. Rahul said, “What kind of bowling we did in the first innings and the bowling first after losing the toss is a positive aspect of discipline. The team that won the toss was thought to be in a favorable position and we bowled very disciplinedly. “The way Mohammed Shami and Bumrah started and Shardul (Thakur) and Mohammed Siraj continued, how they all worked together and bowled in the right places, it was great.
