Jasprit Bumrah’s injury appears to be more serious than first thought, and he may be out for longer than expected. As of now, the India captain is seriously doubtful for the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is set to begin in less than a month and run through April and May. If India qualifies, he may not be able to play in the World Test Championship (WTC) final in the United Kingdom in June.
According to Live Cricket Score, Bumrah, who has been out of international action for nearly five months, is not feeling well and faces a potentially lengthy break. According to sources, the Indian team’s goal is to have him ready for the World Cup in October-November, if not the Asia Cup, wherever it is held.
Bumrah last played for India in a T20I against Australia on September 25 of last year, and Cricbuzz recently reported that he was still awaiting clearance from the National Cricket Academy authorities in Bengaluru for the three ODIs against Australia in March. However, according to the most recent information, things have gone differently than planned, and the NCA will not rush him into action. Initially, it was thought that Bumrah’s return to the IPL would be acceptable because he would only bowl four overs per game, and the original plan was for him to increase his workload gradually, and an IPL return fit the bill.
