1. The Rohit hand
"When I was bowling before lunch, the wicket was not doing a lot and the ball had become soft," Bumhrah told cricket.com.au. "Rohit was there at mid-off and he said, 'it's the last ball, you could try a slower ball'. He told me that I use it quite a lot in white-ball cricket and I could still try it. The execution was good and we got a wicket off the last ball. (I have to thank Rohit) for the suggestion, obviously. The wicket is on the slower side and sometimes the batsmen play with hard hands, so (the slower ball) could come into play. So that was the plan," said Bumrah.
2. Bumrah's belief
"I've been lucky in that no one has tried to change my action," he said. "They thought if I change my action, I'll lose the things that I have. So I've been lucky with that and I've always tried to make my body stronger. I've done relatively well in first-class cricket ... so I was always confident that whenever I got the chance, I would be able to do well. I used to love playing four-day cricket back home. I've always wanted to play Test cricket and living the dream is the best feeling."
3. Bumrah stands with Shami
Bumrah became the first Asian bowler to take five-wicket hauls in Australia, England and South Africa in the same calendar year. Bumrah is now India's joint leading wicket-taker in Tests in 2018 along with Mohammed Shami.
4. Bumrah's breaks records
With 45 wickets, Bumrah surpassed Dileep Doshi to grab most wickets for India in the debut year in Test cricket. In 1979, Doshi took 40 wickets. Venkatesh Prasad is third on the list with 37 wickets and he did that in 1996. Narendra Hirwani with 36 wickets in 1988 and S Sreesanth with 35 in 2006 complete the top five. On this day, Bumrah also recorded the best figures for any Indian bowler in Tests at the MCG, surpassing leg-spin legend B Chandrasekhar's 6/52 in 1977.
