New Delhi: The All India Senior Selection Committee included fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah in India’s ODI team for the upcoming 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. Bumrah was away from action in cricket since September 2022 and was also ruled out of the ICC T20 World Cup due to a back injury. Bumrah last played for the Indian team in the T20Is at home again against Australia in September last year, before being ruled out of the T20 World Cup due to a stress fracture in his back.

The pacer has undergone rehabilitation and has now been declared fit by the National Cricket Academy (NCA). He will soon join the ODI team of Team India.

Bumrah’s return will strengthen India’s fast bowling department where the team has lacked pace for some time.

It will be interesting to see how Jasprit Bumrah is handled by the team management considering his importance for the team in one year. Especially when India has to play 50 overs World Cup at home.

Bumrah has been a vital cog for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the IPL over the years and all eyes will be on his workload management by the franchise in this year’s tournament (IPL 2023) as well.

A BCCI release on Bumrah’s inclusion read, “Bumrah was out of cricketing action since September 2022 and was also ruled out of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup due to a back injury. The fast bowler has undergone rehabilitation and is expected to return to the national team.” Has been declared fit by the Cricket Academy (NCA). He will soon join Team India’s ODI squad.”
