 Jasprit Bumrah unlikely to make a return for India tour to Ireland in August – Reports

Finally, a sign of relief for the Indian fans as lately there has been some positive news surrounding the injury of Jasprit Bumrah. The top pacer has started bowling 7 overs each day as he continues his recovery from back surgery. Bumrah has been out for about a year and is currently in the National Cricket Academy (NCA). On the other hand, it is unclear whether he will play in the T20 series between India and Ireland.

The games are scheduled to be played in August and Bumrah’s ability to manage the workload will determine a lot of things. In terms of the Indian cricket board, the goal is to make him ready for the Asia Cup in August before the World Cup in 2023. Bumrah’s return date to the Indian team is still up in the air, and neither he nor the medical staff can say with certainty when he will do so. For Indian cricket lovers, who are impatiently awaiting the 2023 World Cup, there is good news.

Jasprit Bumrah underwent surgery to treat his injury

In March, Bumrah underwent surgery in New Zealand to treat a persistent back issue. He has been tirelessly working on a comeback ever since. In September 2022, he made his most recent debut for India at the home T20Is against Australia. However, it is very much essential not to rush his return as it may lead him to suffer from more severe injury.  It is also essential in understanding that recovering from a stress fracture generally requires cautious monitoring and steady progress. Bumrah’s workload has gradually amplified from light workouts as well as bowling sessions to bowling seven overs at the nets of NCA.

Former Team India strength and conditioning coach Ramji Srinivasan emphasized the necessity for prudence when reintroducing Bumrah to elite cricket. Before making a comeback to international cricket, Srinivasan advised Bumrah to take part in actual domestic matches to make sure his body is ready for the demands of the sport.

The schedule for ODI World Cup 2023 was announced on Tuesday and India will be kick-starting their campaign against Australia which is scheduled to be played on October 8.
