Sanjana and Bumrah had remained tight-lipped about their relationship until the two got married. The 27-year-old had opted out of the fourth Test against England, citing personal reasons. He has also been rested for the five-match T20I series against the visitors keeping his workload management in mind.
Meanwhile, in the shortest format, Team India made a brilliant comeback in the T20I series as the team registered a comprehensive 8-wicket victory in the second T20I on Sunday after losing the first game. The third game of the series will be played on Tuesday.
