Bumrah to join India’s training session at Vizag
Indian right-arm fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is likely to join with his teammates during their training session at Vishakapatnam where India will play an ODI against West Indies.
Jasprit Bumrah is now out of action due to the back injury he sustained. The pacer is out of action since the home Test series against South Africa. As a result, Jasprit Bumrah also missed India’s first ever day-night Test match.
Some days before, Jasprit Bumrah posted some posts in Social Media as announcing that he is back into the field and started his training sessions after the injury. Now the fast bowler is going to take another step to test his back.
Jasprit Bumrah is likely to bowl against Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma during India’s net sessions at Vishakapatnam ahead of the ODI against West Indies. A close source said that there the fast bowler will test his back and take the next steps for the comeback.
“Bumrah will be joining the team at the nets in Vizag and his back will be tested as he goes full throttle against the world’s best batsmen like Kohli and Rohit. You can’t really have a better test than having a go against the best in business.
As you are aware, team management has been very particular about injury management and that is why this process has been put in place. It will be an interesting battle at the nets for sure.”
The fast bowler is expected to make his comeback into the side for India’s tour to New Zealand next year. The source further confirmed Bumrah’s plan on the New Zealand tour and revealed why Bumrah took immediate break.
“You can’t take a chance with one of your best bowlers even though his body was on auto-heal mode. So, he was sent to the UK for consultation. We have an important tour of New Zealand coming up in the new year and he will be an integral part of the planning there. So, the team management was very clear that they are happy to wait and have him back at his best in time for the New Zealand tour.”
