India and Mumbai Indians’ star pacer, Jasprit Bumrah has not been able to make a comeback to competitive cricket.
Additionally, he has been out of the Indian squad since September 2022 when he played in a home series against Australia.
Last year, Bumrah did not play the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup for India. As of 2023, he has not played any cricket so far.
Now, Bumrah’s delayed return to competitive cricket has given fans a great opportunity to make memes.
Fans are still not calm as they are posting tweets continuously on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.
Many fans are even asking the team management to keep Bollywood actor, Bobby Deol as Bumrah’s replacement.
Currently, Bumrah is still nursing a major back injury that has been troubling him for quite some months now.
According to sources, the injury may take another 4-5 months to heal.
This means that Bumrah will miss the upcoming season of the IPL along with the World Test Championship final should India qualify for the same.
Bumrah’s return to cricket becoming a major talking point
Moreover, Bumrah’s return to cricket is not only a sore point for India but has also become a major issue everywhere.
On the other hand, the management wants Bumrah to continue his rehab so that he is fully fit for the upcoming 50-over World Cup at home.
For IPL franchise, Mumbai Indians as well, this is a time of worry because Bumrah has been their pace spearhead for many years now.
They will be finding out a replacement for him soon enough and it will have to be England’s Jofra Archer.
Archer has made his comeback to international cricket recently and has been doing well for England in the few games that he has played so far.
