‘Such a welcome sight’ – Jasprit Bumrah takes two wickets in first over on India comeback
Bumrah was affected by a back injury during the ODIs against England in 2022, and last played any professional game in September. An attempt at making a comeback in January failed after he experienced back stiffness in the nets, following which he underwent surgery earlier this year.
Bumrah is now fit and is leading the India T20I team against Ireland, starting on Friday (August 18). The tour presents an opportunity to gauge his fitness levels and bowling rhythm ahead of a hectic schedule, starting with the Asia Cup in a fortnight, and ending with the World Cup in India.
