It began in South Africa in 2018 and we lost that awesome series 2-1. I needed to release Bumrah in that first Test in Cape Town. I skiped the thought off Virat months prior and told the selectors: ‘Don’t release him in India. I don’t need the world to see him in Test cricket before Cape Town.’ That was three years prior. From that point forward he’s taken 101 wickets. It’s surprising,” said Shastri to The Guardian.
