Jasprit Bumrah, the talented Indian fast bowler, is set to make his much-anticipated return to international cricket after a gap of nearly 11 months. Bumrah last played in the T20I series against Australia in September 2022, before suffering a stress fracture in his back. After undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, he is now ready to lead a young Indian side in the upcoming three-match T20I series against Ireland.
In the same vein, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), recently, shared a video clip of Jasprit Bumrah bowling at the nets, showcasing his fiery pace and skill. In the video, he delivered a deadly bouncer followed by a toe-crushing yorker, indicating that he is back in form and ready to make an impact on his return.
Bumrah's return is crucial for the Indian team as they prepare for the 2023 Asia Cup and the ICC ODI World Cup. The responsibility of leading a young side, Bumrah will play a vital role in preparing players for the upcoming mega event which is scheduled to take place in October and November this year in India.
Laxmipathy Balaji believes back surgery is a bit jittery for pacers like Bumrah
However, former Indian pacer Laxmipathy Balaji has warned that Jasprit Bumrah may face some challenges in his comeback. Balaji highlighted that any back surgery comes with its own set of hiccups and that Bumrah will need time to adjust and perform at his best. Despite these challenges, Balaji expressed confidence in Bumrah's abilities.
“Any back surgery, it’ll have some little bit of hiccups here and there," Balaji told Sportstar.
India will be looking to bounce back from their recent series loss against West Indies and regain their winning form. Led by Bumrah, the team will aim to showcase their skills and dominate the three T20Is against Ireland, which will be played on August 18, 20, and 23, respectively, in Dublin.
