There is no guarantee of success: Bumrah
The Indian pace bowler was speaking with the media after the third ODI. He stated that they bowled well till the 35th-40th over and he admitted that they gave away a bit of runs towards the end, but he feels that’s the part of the game.
Since 2017, in matches played between the top 10 teams, Bumrah, Bhuvi, Kuldeep and Chahal all feature in the top 12 wicket takers list.
And of the top 15, 5 most economical:
Basically the Indian bowling attack and Rabada.

Difference between Bumrah and rest of the Indian seamers the same difference as between Virat and rest of the batsmen in ODIs.

He explained that in the position they bowled, there’s no guarantee of success. He added that somedays it will go well, somedays it won’t.
The right-arm pacer felt that Bhuvneshwar Kumar who leaked runs in the death overs was clear in his plans but the batsmen were in a better place.
Bumrah said that in the next ODI they will be better prepared when they bowl at the death.
Bumrah gives the credit to Windies batsmen
The Indian pace bowler accepted that India gave a little bit of runs in the end, so maybe, that could be the difference. But overall, he felt that the bowling performance was not bad.
He noted that the Windies played well and you have to give credit to the batsmen.
Bumrah makes a solid comeback
— CricTracker (@Cricketracker) October 27, 2018
Bumrah who was rested for the first two ODIs in this series made a solid comeback in the team by claiming four wickets in the game. He removed both the Windies openers early in the innings and claimed the big wicket of Shai Hope in the death overs with a terrific yorker.
However the lack of support from other bowlers allowed Windies to pile up a match-winning total of 283 runs on the board.
