With a short run-up, Bumrah did a good job at imitating the legendary leg-spinner. Bumrah – who missed out on the last Test in Brisbane due to an injury – is expected to make a come back to the side for the first Test at Chennai starting February 5.

The yorker-specialist would be expected to play a pivotal role for India in the upcoming Test series. He would also get support from an experienced Ishant Sharma – who is also expected to return.

At home, India would start favourites but England cannot be taken lightly as they are coming into the series on the back of a 2-0 series win against Sri Lanka – which means they would not have a problem in acclimatizing with the conditions in Chennai.
