India’s upcoming assignment against Ireland will see the much-awaited return of Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna. Notably, both pacers are currently in the scheme of things to make it to the upcoming ODI World Cup, which is slated to begin on October 5 and hence, the series holds extreme value. Bumrah, who’s been out of action for close to one year has recently gained full fitness and will be charged up to make a point while Krishna will have to perform extremely well in order to justify his spot in the ODI squad.

Speaking about the same, veteran India cricketer, Ravichandran Ashwin stated that the people who don’t think the Ireland series to be important are wrong. The 36-year-old added saying that he is eager to see the duo make their return to the playing XI as they can prove to be valuable assets for the national team in upcoming white-ball assignments.

“From an Indian team’s perspective, August 18-23 will be a very important time for Indian cricket. Are these 3 T20Is in India really that important? If you are thinking that way, then please change your thought process, because this series will be the comeback series for Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna,” Ashwin stated on his YouTube channel.

“And as much as everyone is anticipating Jasprit Bumrah’s comeback, I am eagerly waiting for Prasidh Krishna’s comeback too since he has been in terrific form as for as white-ball cricket is concerned for India. My best wishes for both of them to come out of this series with lots of wickets and come out hale and healthy,” he added.

Notably, Bumrah will also lead the team in the T20I series. It will be interesting to see how he manages the likes of Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma and Shivam Dube among a few others as all of them were terrific in the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League. On top of that, most of the players are part of India’s squad that will travel to China for the upcoming Asian Games and hence, the team combination will also be key in the series.
