Jasprit Bumrah begins bowling in nets at the NCA

Jasprit Bumrah is a vital element in India’s bowling attack, and his injury has been a big source of concern for the Indian team’s management for some time. He is currently healing from a back ailment, but there is reason to be optimistic since he has been spotted bowling in the NCA nets.

Bumrah has been a fixture on the Indian squad since his debut in 2016. His ability to bowl with the new ball throughout the middle overs and thrive with the yorker ball at the end makes him one of the world’s most deadly bowlers. He has all of the deliveries that may bother a batter and utilises them to perfectly dismiss the finest of the hitters.

India and Indian cricket team supporters will be hoping that Bumrah recovers swiftly since Australia will be visiting India next week for a four-match Test series. He has already been ruled out of the first two Test matches of the series, which may be a significant loss given Australia’s formidable batting lineup.

Bumrah was spotted bowling in the nets and has more than three weeks to regain match fitness and join the Indian side for the final two Border Gavaskar Trophy Tests. Bumrah has been sidelined since September, so regaining match fitness will be difficult.

In the shape of Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, and Jaydev Unadkat, India has great pace options. Siraj and Shami’s combo has been doing the work for the side in Bumrah’s absence, taking fast wickets and breaking down vital partnerships. India will want to be at full strength for the next two Tests in order to meet any threat presented by the Australian squad.
