The Indian team is going to play the third Test match against England on Wednesday. This match is to be played in the world’s largest cricket stadium. This match, played at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad, is very important for India in terms of the series as well as the World Test Championship. Along with the team, this match is also special for many players. This match is the 100th Test of Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma but this will be the first time when India’s star bowler Jasprit Bumrah will hit his home ground for the first time in his international career.
Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah started his international career in 2016. He made his ODI debut against Australia, while also making his T20 debut on the same tour. Two years later, in the year 2018, Bumrah made his Test debut against South Africa. Jasprit Bumrah’s first Test match in India was the first match of the current series against England.
Bumrah Will Play The First Match At Home
Bumrah has proved himself against every format and every team in the last years. With the help of his accurate York, he has made almost every star batsman of the world his victim. In a career of five years, Bumrah has played 18 Tests, 67 ODIs, and 49 T20 matches so far but Wednesday will be the first time when he will play at his home ground. Bumrah was born in Ahmedabad. He plays for Gujarat in domestic cricket. Bumrah has a special attachment to this ground.
According to the news of the Indian Express, Jasprit Bumrah often comes near the ground and stops his car and looks at the school grounds, and remembers his old days. Like Bumrah, this is a special moment for the fans of Ahmedabad. He is going to see his hero playing on his field for the first time.
