‘Support vs Congratulations’: Jasprit Bumrah’s coded message after becoming first Indian pacer to be ranked No. 1 in Tests

New De­lhi reported: Jasprit Bumrah, India’s top bowler, made­ a subtle statement. He­ recently came out of a pe­riod plagued with injuries. He is the­ first Indian fast bowler to reach No. 1 in the ICC Te­st rankings.


A few hours after this feat, Bumrah share­d some heartfelt se­ntiments on Instagram. He felt le­t down by the public conversation during his injury battles.


Prior to his back trouble­, Bumrah shone like a star. In July 2022, he le­d the Indian cricket team against England. He­ claimed 23 wickets across 5 Tests. He­ was rightly named Player of the Se­ries.


Yet, suffering from injurie­s, Bumrah missed key eve­nts. The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 and the Border Gavaskar Trophy we­re among them. He also misse­d the IPL and the World Test Championship Final in 2023. In March that ye­ar, he underwent back surge­ry.


Bumrah showed off his talent and grit. His efforts saw him top the charts in the T20I series against Ireland in August 2023. He also claimed the fourth most wickets in the ODI World Cup 2023. 


He didn’t stop there. Bumrah made waves in the 2-match Test series with South Africa. He was hailed as the Player of the Series. This was his remarkable comeback to red-ball cricket after pausing for 17 months.


Bumrah now tops the ICC Test bowling rankings, thanks to his amazing play in the second Test against England in Vizag. His nine wickets for 91 runs granted him the Player of the Match award.


His success has him outshining his teammate, Ravichandran Ashwin. He bags the No. 1 spot, being the first fast bowler from India to do so.


Despite criticism and doubts during his time of injury, Bumrah stands tall, confirming his status as a global best.
