Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma's men have been impressive since losing the opening Test of the series by 28 runs. They bounced back to win the 2nd Test in Vishakhapatnam by 106 runs, thanks to Yashasvi Jaiswal's 209 in the first innings. Nevertheless, Jasprit Bumrah's nine-wicket haul was the real difference on a docile track.
