The series happened to be Bumrah’s maiden Test series at home. So far, he has played just a couple of games and has managed to claim four wickets at an average of 32.25, as the spinners have made most of the impact.

As for his replacement for the fourth Test, either Umesh Yadav or Mohammed Siraj could get the nod, alongside all-rounder Hardik Pandya. However, if the team management opts for an extra spinner, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav could be back into the fray.
