Jasprit Bumrah came up with a match-winning spell against West Indies in the first Test at Antigua. He picked up 5 wickets giving away just 7 runs from his eight overs in the second innings as India made slight work of the West Indies batting order. His partnership with Ishant Sharma helped India bundle out the opposition for 100 runs in 26.5 overs thereby giving them a massive victory by 318 runs. During the course of the match, Bumrah also became the quickest Indian pacer to 50 Test wickets.

Bumrah, a keen learner and quick thinker, admitted that he is always finding ways to polish his craft to succeed consistently at the highest level. He said, "I used to bowl the in-swinger earlier, but the more Test matches I've played, I've gotten more confident to bowl the out-swinger, especially since England."

"I am always trying to evolve. I was a little stiff in the first innings since I returned after a break, but things were all sorted by the second innings." Bumrah was rested from the limited-overs leg of the series as per his workload management plan.

"This wicket was sometimes on the flatter side, that time we had to do things differently. It was swinging today, so we bowled this way. There's a lot of communication among us, the fast bowlers."

"We decided to bowl cross-seamed deliveries in the first innings. We have a good camaraderie, we all work hard and we all push each other."

His partner Ishant Sharma picked up five-wickets in the first innings of the Test. He finished with match figures of 8 for 74.

The second Test will be played at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica from 30th August.
