Jasprit Bumrah likely to return in action during Ireland series

Latest UpdatesNewsJasprit Bumrah likely to return in action during Ireland series

Prime Indian pacer Jasrprit Bumrah is likey return to action during the upcoming series against Ireland, reports on Saturday said.

Indian Express reported that Bumran could be a part of the Indian team for the tour of Ireland. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to send a second-string Indian team to the tour.

With Bumrah making significant progress at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, he could be on his way for the series in August too.

“For an injury of this nature, it is not wise to set any timeline as constant monitoring is necessary. But it can be said that Bumrah is recovering well and he has bowled seven overs at NCA nets. It is a steady increase in his workload from the light workouts and bowling sessions of the initial period. He will play a few practice matches (at NCA) next month, and there will be a close assessment of his fitness then,” a source tracking the development told PTI.

Ramji Srinivasan, former strength and conditioning coach of Team India, said extreme care should be taken while bringing back Bumrah.

“He should not be hurried. Playing practice matches at the NCA is a good step as it will help tune his body to the demands of a match. But he should be made to play in some actual (domestic) matches before bringing him to top level cricket,” Ramji had said.
