Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant chose the stadiums that helped them reach significant career landmarks. It was the Wanderer’s for the former and Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) for the latter.

Pujara was quite adamant about the MA Chinnaswamy Stadium as his favorite Test venue. And why not? After all the 33-year-old made his debut at this venue. Lastly, Trent Boult‘s choice was a bit surprising and he was quite aware about it.

“Mine is a little weird,” said Boult as he chose the Adelaide Oval. “Good atmosphere, good hype and yes a lot of good history,” he further added.
