IND vs SA: The land brings back special memories

Indian speed bowler Jasprit Bumrah shared a heartfelt message on his return to the Newlands Stadium, where he made his first Test for India in the 2018 Tour of South Africa.

Bumrah was seen as a white ball specialist early in his career, before he had the chance to play the red ball on the Protean coast. Since then, he has not looked back and has become one of the best players in the world.

“CApe Town, January 2018 – was the starting point for my cricket test.Four years on, I have grown as a player and as a person, and returning to this land brings special memories,” Bumrah captioned the tweet.

Here’s Jasprit Bumrah’s tweet:

Bumrah’s maiden Test wicket was probably his most memorable as he knocked out legendary South African batsman AB de Villiers. Bumrah also scored his Virgo 5 wickets in the Test in the final match on the same tour, finishing with a 5/54 figure in Johannesburg.

Since then, he has played a total of 25 Tests and won 106 wickets with an average of 22.33. The tally includes six five wickets, each from overseas matches.

Along with Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma, Bumrah formed the famous pace trio that revolutionized India’s pace attack. They have started to dominate away games, a rarity before 2018.

The latest entrant to the attack is Mohammad Siraj. He played a major role in India, leading 2-1 in England and winning Australia’s Frontier-Gavasca trophy in 2020-21.
