BUMRAH TO RECOVER SOON
Seems like the return is not too far for the injured Jasprit Bumrah who is sweating it out in the gym. The fast bowler was ruled out of the three-match T20I ODI series against England after he got injured during the 1st T20I against Ireland.
He got his finger injured, in fact, it was broken after he attempted to take a catch on his delivery in the last over.
India missed him badly in the limited overs series and would be hoping for his comeback as soon as possible. Men in blue had to face defeat series defeat against England after they failed to defend in the last ODI. In the 2nd ODI, the bowlers had leaked too many runs in the last 10 overs which hurt India eventually.
The Indian pacer Bumrah shared a video on Instagram where he can be seen running on a treadmill with eagerness in his eyes for a comeback.
Bumrah was rested for the second match as India called up Umesh Yadav and Siddharth Kaul. The 24-year-old Bumrah is the No.1 ODI bowler in the world and his absence will be a huge blow for India, who will be up against in-form English batsmen on flat pitches.
Bumrah, who has played 37 ODIs and 35 T20Is since his international debut in 2016, made his Test debut on the tour of South Africa earlier this year. He made an immediate impression and finished the three-match series with 14 wickets including a five-wicket haul.
Shardul replaced Bumrah in the T20 ODI Series. Shardul Thakur was part of the IPL-winning Chennai Super Kings team, with taking 16 wickets this season.
India’s ODI squad against England: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur, Hardik Pandya, Siddarth Kaul, Umesh Yadav.
