Indian superstar Jaspreet Bumrah could make his much-anticipated international cricket return during the T20I series against Ireland which is scheduled to be played in August this year.

Bumrah had suffered a serious back injury last year which ruled him out of the 2022 T20 World Cup as well as the 2023 World Trial Championship final. However, as reported by News 18, the speedster appears to be making a good recovery after back surgery in March. . It is increasingly likely that a ‘peak fitness’ will be achieved before Ireland’s T20Is.

This is what a senior official in the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry told News18:

“Jasprit Bumrah is looking very good for the Ireland series in August this year. It will be a huge boost for the Indian cricket team and will also allow Bumrah time in the middle after a long injury spell. If all continues on course, Bumrah will likely enter peak fitness to field”.

BCCI is responsible for Jasprit Bumrah’s progress in the NCA

A Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry official provided more information on how Jaspreet Bumrah is progressing with his NCA recertification. Apart from being under the watchful eye of NCA President VVS Laxman, Bumrah also works closely with Nitin Patel, Head of Sports Science and Medicine.

Rajnikanth is the physicist who works closely with Bumrah, and the source said the NFL is making sure they are not rushed into international cricket. The source said:

“Nitin Patel and Rajnikant have worked closely with Bumrah and kept him on track during his NCA rehabilitation period. They are both very experienced and don’t want to take any chances with Bumrah in a very important year. And also the start of a new World Test Championship cycle.”

Bumrah’s comeback will boost India’s bowling in their bid to win the World Cup later this year.
