After undergoing back surgery in March of this year and undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, star Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah is finally ready to return to international cricket in the Twenty20 International series against Ireland in August of this year. The series will take place in India.
During this time, KL Rahul has checked himself into the NCA and is currently going through the rehabilitation process. After having surgery on his thigh in May, it is now uncertain when he will be able to return. It is quite improbable that he will be able to participate in the Asia Cup.
Regarding Shreyas Iyer, who also underwent back surgery, the state of his recovery is not yet completely understood.
Post-injury Jasprit Bumrah is scheduled to play against Ireland.
The BCCI wants to put him through a match in the shortest version of the game against Ireland before he participates in the One-Day International World Cup.
“Jasprit Bumrah is in great shape heading into the Ireland series in August of this year,” said the commentator. After a lengthy absence due to injury, it will provide Bumrah the opportunity to get some innings under his belt and provide a significant boost to the Indian cricket squad.
An official from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) stated to News18 that it is likely that Bumrah would hit the field in the best possible physical condition if all goes according to plan.
The pacer for the Mumbai Indians did not participate in the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia or the series that followed it against Bangladesh. In the beginning of this year, in January, he was selected for the one-day international team that would play Sri Lanka at home. However, he was later removed from the squad before the commencement of the series.
During this time, KL Rahul is also serving his sentence in the NCA and participating in rehabilitation. After having surgery on his thigh in May, it is now uncertain when he will be able to return. It is quite improbable that he will be able to participate in the Asia Cup. In addition to him, Shreyas Iyer is going through the process of having back surgery.
