“It was a good day. One of those days where what I was executing was working. Wicket looked sticky (early on). Disappointed with my last ball. When the first over was bowled, I realised ball was gripping a bit. Wanted to bowl a good hard length.

“I’ve been doing this for 11 years, so I’m used to it. What happened at the end was dew set in and it got better to bat on. Don’t want to get too high or too low with good and bad days. This game is a great leveller. Want to keep working hard. The wicket did get better. DK played a special knock. Over here, it’s tough to stop someone when they get going,” said Bumrah after the innings.
