Jasprit Bumrah’s comeback in a hurry before T20 World Cup?
Chief selector Chetan Sharma spoke big about Bumrah’s return
Bumrah was injured again in the T20 series against Australia.
New Delhi. Was Jasprit Bumrah, who is recovering from a back injury, hasty in returning to Team India before the T20 World Cup? During the announcement of the Indian team for the tour of New Zealand and Bangladesh, it seems from what Chief Selector Chetan Sharma said about Bumrah. Because Bumrah has not been selected for both New Zealand and Bangladesh tour. He is still not fully recovered from the back injury and is unlikely to return to the field before February. That is, now he will directly enter the home Test series against Australia.
Chetan Sharma, while announcing Team India for the tour of New Zealand and Bangladesh, said that before the T20 World Cup, we hastened in the matter of Bumrah’s return and you see what the result was. He was ruled out of the T20 World Cup. Actually, Bumrah made a comeback from the T20 series against Australia in September after about two months, but after playing two matches, got injured again and was also out of the T20 World Cup.
Haste in Bumrah’s return: Chief selector
The Chief Selector said, ‘The selection committee will also have to look after the workload management of the players. Looking at the T20 World Cup, we hastened the return of Jasprit Bumrah and you see what happened? We are playing T20 World Cup without Bumrah. I always say that we have to manage the players but, when we do this, the question arises that why some players are not playing, changing captains again and again. No selector wants the team or captain to be changed but, with so much cricket happening, it is necessary to manage the workload of the players. We also have to take care of the body of the players because they are also human beings.
Bumrah recovering from injury at NCA
He further said that the medical team of the National Cricket Academy is taking care of Bumrah. He will definitely be a part of the team in next year’s series against Australia. We don’t want to be in any hurry now, as we have done earlier. We are taking precautions regarding Bumrah. He will return soon.
Was injured again just before the T20 World Cup
Bumrah was first diagnosed with a back injury in August. After that he was out of the Asia Cup. However, he was declared fit in September and was included in the Indian team selected for the T20 World Cup. The same squad also landed in the home T20 series against Australia and South Africa. Bumrah played the first two matches of the 3 T20 series against Australia but before the start of the T20 series against South Africa, he complained of back pain and was ruled out of this series and then the T20 World Cup.

Since then, Bumrah is in the NCA to recover from his injury and is going through a rigorous rehab program. The Indian team will play the same number of T20s in New Zealand with three ODIs. After this, it will reach Bangladesh in early December. Here a series of 3 ODIs and two Tests will be played between the two countries. Thereafter, with the Border Gavaskar Trophy of 4 Tests against Australia at home, the Indian team will host New Zealand and Sri Lanka for a white ball series before completing their World Test Championship campaign.
