Australia coach Justin Langer was all praise for the Indian bowlers for the manner in which they have kept Australian batsmen on the backfoot in the series so far. Even though India lost the first Test before coming back hard to clinch the second, their bowlers have been on the spot right through the two Tests. Jasprit Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin were brilliant in the Boxing Day Test while debutant Mohammed Siraj provided him excellent support.
Jasprit Bumrah, the leader of India's pace bowling attack, has revealed that he prefers bowling with the Dukes ball manufactured in England in comparison to India's SG Test or Australia's Kookaburra. According to Bumrah, the assistance the Dukes ball offers gives the bowlers some much-needed confidence.
