Fans and cricket fraternity are waiting eagerly for the return of Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who is rehabilitating after suffering a stress fracture to his back before the home series against South Africa and was immediately replaced in the squad. Bumrah has avoided surgery but is getting better and recovering quicker than expected.
The 25-yeard-old fast bowler from Gujarat is currently rehabbing at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru since last week. Though it has been reported that Bumrah may be fit in time for the visiting West Indies team, the management and BCCI won’t be risking him until the New Zealand tour early next year, which will see India play 5 T20I matches.
Danielle Wyatt says baby weights to Bumrah’s fitness photo
Bumrah recently posted a photo from the NCA in Bengaluru of him doing weights in the facility, which showed that the pacer is leaving no stone unturned to make a comeback to the national fold and regaining full fitness. Sharing his progress with his fans, Bumrah shared the latest picture from his gym session on his official Instagram account. He captioned it, “Coming Soon”.
However, this image proved to be the perfect opportunity for England’s women cricketer Danielle Wyatt, who is known for her wit and funny digs at fellow cricketers and Indian players as well. She is known for her admiration for Indian batting greats like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and she has praised them on social media many times. This time, however, it was her making fun of Bumrah’s weight lifting exercises.
Meanwhile, Bumrah has been utterly successful for India since being discovered by Mumbai Indians in IPL. Making his debut in 2016, Bumrah has become the mainstay of the Indian bowling attack. Apart from limited-overs cricket, the right-hand fast bowler has made a big mark on Test cricket as well, making his debut in 2018. He became the only Asian bowler with five-wicket hauls in Tests in South Africa, England, Australia, and West Indies.
Bumrah also became the third Indian to take a Test hat-trick, a feat he achieved in the Caribbean and with focus on ICC T20 World Cup 2020, the team management want him fitter and better than ever, given his importance in the scheme of things, as India looks to win its second T20 world title in Australia.
