Star pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna are close to returning from injuries, which is good news for Indian cricket fans. With the World Cup 2023 fast approaching, their potential returns might be a huge help for Team India.
Both Bumrah and Krishna bowled to Mumbai hitters in practise games at the Alur Grounds in Bangalore as part of their preparation.
Both pacers recently underwent surgery after suffering stress fractures in their backs. Bumrah has been out of international contention since 2022, and if he can regain full fitness, the Indian pace attack might be boosted to new heights.
Bumrah missed numerous big competitions for the Indian squad as a result of his injury, including the Asia Cup 2022, the T20I World Cup 2022, and the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.
Jasprit Bumrah to return soon
Prasidh Krishna, on the other hand, last played for India in August 2022 and has been out of contention for selection since then.
According to the Times of India, Bumrah bowled a total of 10 overs, which were divided across two periods. In addition, Krishna bowled to the same hitters in practise games.
Jay Shah, the secretary of the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India), recently announced that Jasprit Bumrah might make his return to the Indian side very soon, and could play in India’s forthcoming T20I series against Ireland.
With the ODI World Cup 2023 slated to begin on October 5, Bumrah’s arrival to the Indian lineup should boost their chances going into the flagship competition, which they are hosting in an attempt to break their ICC curse.
With the World Cup squad still to be announced, both Bumrah and Krishna may need to put up their best performances to make the Indian squad.
