One thing that is still a topic of discussion in Indian cricket right now is the fitness of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. In fact, everyone hoped that the last 2 matches of the Test series against Australia could see Bumrah’s return to the team, but the selectors decided not to include him in the squad. Also, he will not be seen in the ODI series against the Kangaroos.
In fact, the Indian selectors do not want to be in a hurry to add him to the team considering that the final match of the World Test Championship will be played in June, in addition to the ODI World Cup that will be played at the end of June. this year. In such a situation, everyone hopes that Bumrah can definitely be seen playing in the upcoming IPL season.
In this regard, former Indian player Akash Chopra told a sports website that Bumrah is first an Indian player and then plays for his franchise. So if he is not fully fit, the Indian junta should step in. If Bumrah doesn’t play 7 games with Joffra Archer next season, then no world is going to end.
Akash Chopra further said that when you are fully fit, you want to keep playing. I definitely feel like the BCCI wouldn’t want to take any kind of risk with it. If necessary, he will also talk to his Mumbai Indians franchise and it is not as difficult as we think.
In September 2022, Jasprit Bumrah played his last international match. Since then he has been undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy. In between, he was included in the squad for the ODI series against Sri Lanka, but was then unable to play due to being unfit. At the same time, Bumrah has been playing practice matches in the NCA continuously for some time, but nothing has officially come out regarding his physical condition.
