BCCI on Bumrah Injury Updates

According to BCCI Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna are in the final stages of rehab and are practicing bowling in nets. The cricket board has confirmed that the players will appear in the on games organized by National Cricket Academy, which will be taken by BCCI medical team.

Jasprit Bumrah’s return to action could be imminent, with the fast bowler now “bowling with full intensity in the nets”, according to a BCCI medical update.

Bumrah has not appeared for India for almost a year with his most recent appearance in September 2022. Prasidh Krishna was ruled out of the IPL 2023 with a Stress fracture.

NCA is concerned about Bumrah’s health and has organized practice games, so that he can play under a physio’s supervision, rather than asking him to play in the 50-overs inter-zonal Deodhar Trophy. If he pulls up well in the practice games, he could be in contention for the three-match T20I series in Ireland, which is scheduled to run from August 18 to 23.

After the Ireland tour, India will next be in action at the Asia Cup, from August 30 to September 17. In late September, they will host Australia for three ODIs, just before the ODI World Cup gets underway on October 5.

“The duo will now play some practice games, which the NCA will organise. The BCCI Medical Team is pleased with their progress and will make a final decision after assessing them following the practice games.”

The Rohit Sharma-led side will also hope Prasidh can return to boost India’s pace bowling department. The lanky fast-bowler has picked 25 wickets in just 14 ODI matches but has been out of action since August 2022 because of a stress fracture.

BCCI says India batters KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer had resumed their batting at nets and undergoing strength and fitness drills. The intensity in terms of both skills and strengths will be increased by the medical Team in the coming days.

Rahul was injured during the Indian Premier League (IPL) in May while leading Lucknow Super Giants and has been doubling up as batter and wicketkeeper for India in ODIs in the absence of Pant, who has been India’s first-choice gloveman across formats.

On Rishabh Pant, the BCCI has said in a statement that ‘he has made significant progress in his rehabilitation and has commenced batting as well as keeping in the nets. He is currently following a fitness program designed for him which includes strength, flexibility, and running.’
