The severity of Jasprit Bumrah’s injury looks to be more than first thought, and his recovery time may be longer than anticipated. The Indian Premier League (IPL), which will start in just over a month and go through April and May, is now in a very precarious position. Even if India advances to the World Test Championship (WTC) final in the UK in June, it’s possible that he won’t be well enough to participate.
Jasprit Bumrah hasn’t participated in an international game in around five months. He now doesn’t feel well and is getting ready for a protracted break, according to people close to the IPL and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
According to reports, the Indian squad wants to train him for the World Cup in October-November, even if it isn’t expressly for the Asia Cup.
Jasprit Bumrah last competed for his nation on September 25 against Australia in a T20I match. The National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru reportedly did not give him the go-ahead for the three ODI matches in March against Australia, according to a recent article from Cricbuzz. The NCA won’t compel him to act immediately, however the most recent intelligence suggests that things have not quite gone as planned.
Initially, it was believed that Jasprit Bumrah’s return to the IPL wouldn’t be too detrimental because he would only be supplying four overs each game and the original strategy was to let him handle the burden gradually.
The BCCI, NCA, and Indian team management are already putting together a meticulously planned schedule for his return, even if it will now take more time.
