India’s best death bowler Jasprit Bumrah has hit the ground and is en route to recover from his lower back injury. It looks like he will be back soon on the cricket field and can be seen bowling his toe-breaking yorkers. He was scheduled for his home debut in Tests against South Africa but his injury ruled him out of the action.

Indian selectors will not be in a hurry over the recovery of 25-year-old pacer because he will play a vital role in India’s stint in the upcoming T20 World Cup which is scheduled to take place in Australia next year. Bumrah recently traveled to the UK in order to consult doctors and they reported that Indian quick doesn’t require any surgery.

It is expected that Bumrah will be back in action ahead of New Zealand tour as the selectors would like to test fitness of the illustrious bowler before the overseas series. The young Indian pacer last week won the prestigious Wisden India Almanack Cricketer of the Year award. He made his debut back in 2016 against Australia in ODIs. After that, he went onto became India’s best fast bowler across all the formats. Right-arm pacer featured in 12 Tests, 58 ODIs and 42 T20Is and managed to get more than 250 international wickets.

Meanwhile, Team India has performed decently well by winning their three-match Test series against South Africa by 3-0. Now, Virat Kohli and Co. is leading the ICC Test Championship table, after consecutively winning all of their last five Tests after the championship got underway. The Indian pace attack dispatched some brilliant performance in the absence of their premium fast bowler Bumrah.

In the upcoming series against Bangladesh, Deepak Chahar, Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur are the three pacers picked in the T20I squad whereas Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami will look after the pace attack in Tests.
