Jasprit Bumrah earned his first series victory as the skipper of a young cricket team. The team’s comfortable 33-run victory over Ireland in the second T20 International must have been a proud moment for him. It’s notable that the younger players in the national team seem to be performing well without the burden of excessive expectations, allowing them to tap into their true potential.
Rinku Singh’s impressive performance in the match, scoring 38 runs off 21 balls, certainly made a statement. Being named the Player of the Match must have been a satisfying recognition of his hard work over the years. His contribution to the team’s success in the T20 International series is commendable.
“It is very pleasing. It is tough to pick an XI. It’s a great headache to have. Everyone is eager. Everyone is confident. All of us wanted to play for India,” Bumrah stated at the presentation ceremony after his team’s win in the second game.
“Eventually, everyone has to work their way up. If you play with a baggage of expectation, you are under pressure. You have to keep those expectations aside. You are not doing yourself 100 percent justice if you are playing with so many expectations,” he attached.
These victories and performances are positive signs for the future of the team, showcasing the talent and potential of the younger players. It will be interesting to see how this team continues to develop under Bumrah’s leadership and how the players continue to shine on the international stage.
“I am feeling very good. I was trying to do what I have done in the IPL. I was very confident and tried to stay calm,” he stated.
When his captain and the post-match presentation ceremony translator Bumrah asked indulgently “Captain ki baat sunta hai (Do you listen to your captain?)”, Rinku’s smile was a disarming one.
“I listen to the captain (smiles). I am feeling very nice. I have been playing for 10 years. All my efforts have borne fruition. I am happy to get the Man of the Match award in my first game,” he stated.
