The much-awaited multi-format series between India and Australia gets underway with the opening ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday. As has been the trend in recent times, Jasprit Bumrah will once again lead the bowling unit and be India skipper Virat Kohli’s go-to-man both at the start of the innings as well as in the death overs.
While it can be quite daunting for a 26-year-old to shoulder the responsibilities of leading a bowling attack, Bumrah says that he loves challenges and playing against the best in the business is what brings out the best in him.
“It will be interesting, always a challenge when you go to Australia and it is a well-fought series. You look forward to it as you always want to play against the best, you always want to challenge yourself and be in pressure situations,” he told ANI in Dubai during the business end of the IPL.
