Reports on Jasprit Bumrah
“There used to be an unwritten rule that if someone’s coming back from a long lay-off due to an injury. Jasprit needs to play some domestic cricket to prove his fitness. I guess NCA and selection committee has made an exemption for him since he is not a part of West Zone squad for Deodhar Trophy games. Also, it means that, till now, he is not match ready or else he would have played one Deodhar game,”. BCCI source was quoted as saying by The Times of India.
The source further added that
“Before the Ireland selection meeting, the NCA physio will update Agarkar and Co with fitness report of all the players. If physio’s report states that Jasprit Bumrah, apart from bowling four overs, will also be able to field 16 overs and subsequently 40 overs (in ODIs) with full intensity. He will be selected. As per latest information, the panel hasn’t received a green light from them,” the source added.
Jasprit Bumrah has missed the most important tournaments, including the Asia Cup, T20 World Cup, and the World Test Championship final in 2023. His service was a major miss for the Indian Team in all the tournaments. It is also reported that even if one travels on Ireland Tour. He will not be playing all three T20Is of the series. Hardik Pandya is most likely to lead the Indian team in the three match T20Is series.
