Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been the team’s go-to bowler in the series so far. He has picked up nearly 20 wickets in the series and made a match-winning contribution with the bat at Lord’s Test. In a recent conversation with Dinesh Karthik, Bumrah spoke about his on-field spat with James Anderson which became one of the highlights of the series so far.

Jasprit Bumrah along with all the other Indian bowlers targeted Anderson with bouncers directed at the body. This plan from the Indian bowlers did not please the veteran England pacer one bit.

The Indian pacer clarified that the bouncer barrage on Anderson was not done to hurt him. He further said that the veteran pacer’s ‘unpleasent’ words after the day’s play galvanized the whole team and made them eager to fight.

“I don’t want to go into the details. But when we play the sport, it’s never our intention to really hurt the batsman or try to aim to hit the batsman. It was a tactic to get the lower order out because when we go to Australia or South Africa, this is what happens. That’s what was to it. But as soon as the day got over, some words were exchanged which were not really pleasant so we were not happy about it. I did not hear at that time because I was really tired (chuckles) but all my teammates heard and usually I am a person who doesn’t go looking for a fight or get riled up when needled. But when I heard what was said, I got really riled up” Bumrah said.

“Then it was like, if something comes up [ahead in the game] I won’t really back down and give it back ten times. Everyone was really charged up and ready for a fight, to go really hard but [also keeping in mind] to not lose shape and remember that we are here to do a job, not just talk and make an impact. We wanted to use the fire to our advantage and make a result out of it that eventually happened further added.

Later, Indian skipper Virat Kohli also said it was the on-field incident that made India go all out for the famous victory at Lord’s.
