Jasprit Bumrah is back: Given Bumrah’s significance to the team in the year they host a 50-over World Cup, it will be interesting to see how the team’s management treats him.
Jasprit Bumrah, India’s best pacer, was added to the team on Tuesday in preparation for the ODI series against Sri Lanka. Subsequently, he will before long resume playing global cricket. In September of last year, Bumrah played for the Indian team in the T20Is at home against Australia. He missed the T20 World Cup in view of a pressure crack in his back.
India’s fast bowling department, which hasn’t had any real pace in a while, will benefit from Bumrah’s return.

Two days ago, the Leading Group of Control for Cricket in India announced new measures to prevent important players from leaving due to injuries before major international competitions. Bumrah has received this attention.
While Bumrah was with Mumbai Indians, he had a significant impact in the Indian Premier League. Throughout the tournament this year, the team will also monitor his workload management.
“Bumrah has not played cricket since September 2022, and he also had a back injury that prevented him from playing in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. The pacer has been treated, and the National Cricket Academy (NCA) has found that he is fit. In a statement regarding Bumrah’s inclusion, the BCCI stated, “He will be joining the Team India ODI squad soon.”
For the one-day international against Sri Lanka, India’s revised lineup is as follows: Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (VC), Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohd Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Shami, Umran Malik, and Siraj
