Bumrah also broke a unique record for most Tests abroad before playing at home by an Indian. Prior to Bumrah's 17, it was another pacer Javagal Srinath who had played 12 away Tests before playing in India.

Unfortunately, Bumrah's first delivery in India saw a dropped catch as Rishabh Pant put down a tough chance down the leg side off opener Rory Burns. Burns and Dom Sibley were in a half-century opening partnership.
