After the game, Bumrah on his performance said,

“Nothing special, just tried to have fun, and enjoyed my game. Very happy with how the last game went. The wicket is quite fast here, there’s pace and bounce. There wasn’t much swing, so we assessed the conditions and tried to execute our plans. Whenever you are new to the game, improving your game is a yearly process, it doesn’t stop. We need to analyse next year and come back strong.  After the ball is released from my hand, I can’t do much. I just try to keep things simple, and execute as much as I can.”
