England recovered from early shocks on day 4 after Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes put up a 169-run partnership to take their score from 62/4 to 231/4. But Bumrah did well to shift the momentum back to India and dismissal of well-set Buttler (103) brought wickets in a cluster for the visitors. India picked up 5 wickets in the last session.

India won the third Test by 203 runs after Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed James Anderson in first 10 minutes of play on day 5.

England were 311/9 at the end of fourth day's play and India needed just one more wicket to win the match. On the other hand, England had to survive a whole day and need 210 to win.

Bumrah, the pick of the bowlers in second innings, had missed the first two Test because of injury. He talked about his five-wicket haul to BCCI.tv. The 24-year-old said it would not have been possible without pressure from both ends. He lauded the whole Indian bowling unit for their effort.

Not only Test, Bumrah was out of limited-overs series against England too. When Indian bowling spearhead Ishant Sharma asked the youngster about his comeback, the man of the moment said it was very difficult to recover from the injury. Fans don't get to see the hard work of a cricketer behind the camera and Bumrah pointed out that.
