Will Bumrah Play World Cup 2023 – Injury Updates

Though Bumrah was included in the Ireland series, his performance might come under the radar. In a recent video that surfed on the internet, he was seen bowling to some young lads without his full intensity.

India will have a great boost with the announcement of pacer Jasprit Bumrah’s return to India’s side in the Ireland series. His return after recovery will add an advantage to India in the World Cup 2023.

Bumrah-led Indian side will be playing the T20I series on Ireland’s tour which begins in August, which was announced by BCCI on Monday.

After discussions with NCA, BCCI had given a positive update on Bumrah’s bowling at practice matches. He’s been doing his rehab at NCA post-surgery to cure his lower back stress fracture.

The announcement of Bumrah’s return on July 31, 2023, made it a delightful moment for both the player and the team. Bumrah is set to lead the India squad for the second time, having previously led India against England in a rescheduled Test match in 2022.

With his exceptional skills, Bumrah’s bowling action generates incredible speed, which also puts strain on his back, leading to injuries.

Bumrah missed the Indian Premier League 2023, Asia Cup 2022, and T20 World Cup and underwent back surgery. He is in the final stages of his recovery. Earlier this year, Bumrah underwent surgery for a lower back stress fracture in New Zealand.

On his return before the World Cup 2023, Bumrah shared a video of himself bowling at full tilt during his time at the NCA. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has finally announced his return to the Indian side for the three T20Is, following hints from board secretary Jay Shah.

The decision on appointing him as the captain for the Ireland series shows great confidence in his abilities, but it will put a huge burden on him. The selectors and team management are aware of the workload imposed on him too soon and are set to look at how he responds to four over the bowl before bowling 10 overs in a match.

Captaincy is a responsibility that requires strategy formation on the field and also increased off-field commitments. This adds pressure to Bumrah whose potential could be affected and collapse his primary role as pacer.

But on the other hand, it might serve as a platform to test Bumrah’s fitness and form. The Asia Cup 2023 is scheduled to be held after India’s tour of Ireland. The pressure in him may challenge his potential who is expected to bowl 10 overs on big events like Asia Cup and World Cup 2023.

Bumrah is set to make a return to international cricket after a long absence due to injury. The 29-year-old right-arm seamer has been named the captain of the Indian team for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Ireland scheduled to begin on August 18, 2023.

After being sidelined for 10 months due to his injury, he has shown a remarkable recovery at National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.
