After recording the figures of 6 for 19, the premier Indian seamer, Jasprit Bumrah said there was some seam movement and he just tried to exploit that. Bumrah, along with Mohammed Shami, left no room for England’s top-order to survive and bundled out the hosts for an underwhelming total of 110 in just 25.2 overs in the first ODI match, which India won by 10 wickets at the Oval on Tuesday.

Talking about his performance, during the post-math press conference, Jasprit Bumrah said, “See I don’t look at end results and judge my bowling. There have been instances where I’ve bowled so much better than this and have not gotten wickets, but I always look to follow the same routine. Today was a day where the white ball swung and there was some seam movement, so I wanted to exploit that.”

He further explained, “When we started the innings, we saw there’s some seam and swing so we both of us had a conversation, Rohit and I, that we should go a little fuller and try and bowl the Test match length, so yeah it was a good day, we got wickets and there was some help in the beginning, and the wicket was also on the softer side.”

Jasprit Bumrah took a six-wicket haul and it is now the third-best ODI figure for an Indian bowler. Before him, Stuart Binny had taken 6 for 4 against Bangladesh in 2014 and Anil Kumble had returned with 6 for 12 against West Indies in 1993.

In spite of his brilliance with the ball, Jasprit Bumrah said he will keep a balanced head. He explained, “When things go well you can point out a lot of things that yes this went well, but I try to keep a balanced mind, not to go too far ahead. Yes, it was a good day, but we have to start again in the next game from zero.”

He further added, “So I look to do that, keep a balanced head and try and remember the things that have worked for me before as well, so in the previous tours as well when I have come here, what has worked, what has not worked for me, keep that in mind, keep those mental notes whenever you start fresh, so yeah all of these things I try to keep in mind and try to keep a balanced head.”

India has now taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series and now they will be locking horns with England in the second ODI at Lord’s on July 14.
