<p>In the Vizag Test, Bumrah’s outstanding bowling ability—which was shown by his 9/91 match figures—was important in India’s 106-run win against England to tie the series before to their third Test in Rajkot. Chris Woakes was among the many individuals who praised the 30-year-old for his unwavering performance, as were both fans and players.</p>
<p>In addition to winning Player of the Match in the second Test, the pacer’s great play was the primary reason he rose three spots in the Test rankings, overtaking his colleague Ravichandran Ashwin, who had been ranked first since March of last year.</p>
<p>Woakes praised Bumrah as one of the top bowlers in the world right now, citing his recent stats as evidence.</p>
<p>“Jasprit Bumrah, a world-class player, was the most impressive player in the most recent Test match. He is now among the greatest, if not the top, in all forms. Chris Woakes told ANI, “It’s fantastic to see quick bowling done properly, particularly in these weather.</p>
<p>Bumrah seemed keen to break records in Vizag, and he achieved a noteworthy first by becoming the first Indian bowler to collect 150 wickets in the game’s longest format.</p>
<p>Woakes also underlined the importance of the third Test, which is set to begin on February 15. Despite the fact that India has a significant home advantage, the 34-year-old thinks that the Rajkot Test, which is scheduled “in the middle,” will have an impact on how the series plays out in the end.</p>
<p>It goes without saying that India will be the favorites when you play them. Team England is aware of its competitive needs and will assess the current 1-1 status of the series. Since the next game is the middle game of the series, it will be crucial,” Woakes said.</p>
<p>Woakes was optimistic that England will win one more of the last three games and provide the Indian team with fierce opposition.</p>
