Coming Soon! Jasprit Bumrah Gives An Update On His Fitness, Expected To Make A Comeback Sooner Than Expected
Jasprit Bumrah could be back in action sooner than expected. The right-arm pacer, who is currently out of action due to a back issue, has dropped a big hint that he will make a comeback to the game soon. Earlier, it was expected that he might only be back for the New Zealand tour next year.
India play Bangladesh, West Indies, Sri Lanka and Australia at home before flying to New Zealand and Bumrah’s fitness might be tested before the overseas series. Here is his post –
Burmah, who had made his Test debut in January 2018, was to make his home Test debut against South Africa earlier this month. However, a stress fracture in the back ruled him out of the series. He was replaced by Umesh Yadav.
Bumrah led India’s pace attack on the tour of England and Australia in 2018/19. Keeping his workload in mind, Bumrah was rested for the ODI series against Australia and the tour of New Zealand. He played home series against Australia, IPL and World Cup before being rested for white-ball series against West Indies. The 25-year-old also did not play South Africa T20Is.
The team management is unlikely to test Bumrah’s fitness in T20Is and he might play an ODI series at home before the New Zealand series.
Bumrah had recently flown to the UK to consult doctors and it was decided that he will not require surgery. He has returned to India and will soon be checked on by tem India’s physio Nitin Patel.
In his absence, Deepak Chahar, Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur are three pacers in the T20I squad. For Tests, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami will continue to share the new ball in the series.
While team India’s pace attack in Tests is well settled, the selectors have opportunity to continue to test pacers in the shortest format in the absence of Bumrah, who will lead the pace attack at next year’s T20 World Cup.
