Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah on a comeback trail
Pandya is currently on a comeback trail after having successfully undergone surgery courtesy the lower-back issues that have plagued the all-rounder since the 2018 Asia Cup. In his absence, Shivam Dube has an opportunity to stake his claim as the formers back-up for next years’ ICC T20 World Cup in Australia.
Speaking about Jasprit Bumrah, the Indian speedster has been out of action since the West Indies Test series due to injury. Bumrah is expected to make a comeback to international cricket when India travels New Zealand for a full tour comprising of five T20Is, three ODIs, and two Tests. And, India will hope that the fast bowling spearhead can do what he has thus far in his 12-match Test career- bamboozle batsman with pace, accuracy and swing and seam.
Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer continues to take gigantic steps towards making himself a regular in white-ball cricket courtsey his imperious run-of-form in whatever opportunities he has got thus far. And, the upcoming series against the West Indies could well turn out to be another step towards achieving that.
