Jasprit Bumrah Nears Comeback, Could Join Indian Team Before Asia Cup

Bengaluru: Jasprit Bumrah’s absence from the national team has had a significant impact on India’s performance in major events over the past year. However, there is some good news for fans as Bumrah might make his comeback sooner than expected. According to a report in the Indian Express, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is considering including Bumrah in the second-string Indian team for the tour of Ireland. This decision comes as Bumrah has been making promising progress at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

Last month, a report revealed that Bumrah had started bowling at the NCA and was set to participate in a few practice matches soon. Bumrah’s workload has gradually increased from light workouts and bowling sessions to seven overs at the NCA nets. Constant monitoring is essential for an injury of this nature, but the source tracking the development expressed optimism about Bumrah’s recovery. The next step will be assessing his fitness after playing a few practice matches at the NCA next month.

Former strength and conditioning coach of Team India, Ramji Srinivasan, emphasized the need for caution when reintroducing Bumrah to competitive cricket. While playing practice matches at the NCA is a positive step to acclimatize his body to match demands, Ramji suggested that Bumrah should also participate in actual domestic matches before returning to top-level cricket.

Bringing Bumrah back into the Indian team for the tour of Ireland could serve as a crucial stepping stone in his comeback journey. The BCCI’s decision to include him in the second-string team indicates their confidence in his progress. Fans eagerly await Bumrah’s return to the national team, hoping that his presence will bolster India’s performance in future tournaments.
