Jasprit Bumrah injury: Out of action since September, Jasprit Bumrah has made a full-fledged return to bowling and shared a video of him bowling “full throttle” during a net session. The right-arm pacer took to Instagram to share the good news with his fans and confirmed that he is bowling at an express pace now.
India suffered a big blow before the start of the 2022 T20 World Cup as Bumrah was ruled out of the tournament due to a back injury. He was confirmed to miss the remainder of the action in 2022 and hasn’t been talked about since then.

Jasprit Bumrah injury: Star India pacer resumes bowling after long layoff , eyes return for SriLanka series in January – Check out
A few weeks back, Bumrah shared the video of him resuming training and has now announced that he has started bowling as well. It will be interesting to see if Bumrah will be back in the squad for the Sri Lanka series or not. Team India is scheduled to host SL in six white-ball matches in January 2023.
After the SL series, India will host New Zealand in a white-ball series before taking on Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. If fit, Bumrah could be named in the white-ball squads to prove his match fitness. There can also be a case that the lead pacer might return directly in the Test series, scheduled to take place from February 9 to March 13.
India hugely struggled in Bumrah’s absence in the 2022 T20 World Cup. They did make it to the semi-final but suffered a 10-wicket defeat in the knockout match against England. In the league stage, India lost to South Africa. Bumrah will provide much-need experience to India’s pace attack.
In his absence, Umesh Yadav is leading the pace attack in the ongoing Bangladesh series. Mohammed Shami is also out of action due to an injury and is expected to make his return in the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
