Jasprit Bumrah’s absence from the national team in recent times has been a major setback for India, particularly during crucial tournaments like the Asia Cup, T20 World Cup, and the World Test Championship. However, there might be a ray of hope for the Indian team and its fans, as reports suggest that the star pacer could make a comeback sooner than expected.

According to the Indian Express, Bumrah is being considered for the upcoming tour of Ireland. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is reportedly planning to send a second-string Indian team to Ireland, and this could be an opportunity for Bumrah to return to the national side.

The talented bowler has been making remarkable progress at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, where he has been actively bowling. Despite the nature of his injury, Bumrah’s recovery has been promising, with the bowler even bowling seven overs during the NCA nets. While there is no specific timeline for his return, he is steadily increasing his workload through light workouts and bowling sessions.

A close assessment of Bumrah’s fitness will be conducted during the upcoming practice matches at NCA. This assessment will play a crucial role in determining his readiness for the Ireland tour in August. However, experts are urging caution and not rushing his return to competitive cricket.

Ramji Srinivasan, former strength and conditioning coach of Team India, emphasized the need for patience and cautious steps in bringing back Bumrah to the highest level of the game. While playing practice matches at NCA is a positive step, Ramji suggested that Bumrah should also participate in some domestic matches before making a full-fledged return.
