“It doesn’t make a difference to me. Whenever I get an opportunity, I try and do it well. Of course, I have played a lot of Ranji Trophy cricket, so these conditions are not alien to me. It’s always a special feeling to play Test cricket anywhere. I don’t look at a match or a particular place. I just analyze the wicket and use it to my advantage. It is no different now,”Jasprit Bumrah said while speaking in the press conference.
Further, the 28-year-old also opened up on India’s Test combination for the first Test match against Sri Lanka, scheduled in Mohali. Team India are likely to make some key changes in the playing XI as both Ajinkya Rahane and Chesteshwar Pujara have been dropped from the team.
