Jasprit Bumrah, India's prime pacer, is set to return to the team for the 5th Test match against England. India have won the 5-match Test series, 3-1. The last game will start on March 7, in Dharmashala. It is a piece of good news for the Indian fans as Bumrah will play the final match of the series. Previously, India won their 4th Test match in Ranchi in the absence of Bumrah.

The young players played amazingly and helped India win the match. It was no less than a dream series for India as they dominated the English team through the series in their Bazball era. The match was all about Dhruv Jurel and his effortless batting in both innings. In the first innings, he missed a well-deserved century by 10 runs, while in the second innings, he supported Shubman Gill from the other end while half of the team was back in the pavilion. 

Moreover, the return of Bumrah is a sign of good news for the Mumbai Indians as well since the IPL is starting on March 22. The MI fans will be hoping for their prime bowler to take out the team from a 3-year trophy drought. 

'Started developing the partnership' - Dhruv Jurel on his partnership in the 4th Test match

For his brilliant 90 and 32 runs in the 4th Test match, keeper-batter Dhruv Jurel was awarded the Player of the Match. His effortless batting was the reason India could reach 302 runs in the first innings. Moreover, his 32 runs in the second innings took the pressure off Shubman Gill and thus, their responsible partnership helped India clinch the match as well as the series.

Jurel said, "I play according to the demands of the situation. In the 1st innings, we needed to get runs as well, we knew we had to bat last so any runs would be vital. I was involved in some partnerships, so credit does go to all those who stayed and added runs. I just saw the ball and then reacted to it, not thinking too far ahead. The conversation was good (with Shubman Gill in the 2nd innings), we just broke it into 10-run sets and started developing the partnership."
