Bangalore; News Agency: Jasprit Bumrah, who is currently striving for fitness, is doing light practice at the National Cricket Academy and has started bowling at least 7 overs every day. Bumrah is a very important player for the ICC One Day World Cup to be held in India in October-November this year. However, he has not been able to play a single match after September 2022. In September, he participated in the T20I series against Australia at home. But after that he had to stay out continuously due to back pain. (Jasprit Bumrah)
The 29-year-old Bumrah also had to miss the T20 World Cup last year due to back pain. In that tournament, India had to face defeat against England in the semi-final. Even in the World Test Championship final, India sorely missed Bumrah. In this match held in the same month, Australia blew away India by as many as 209 runs. (Jasprit Bumrah)
KL, Shreyas too on the road to fitness
At the National Cricket Academy, K.L. Rahul and Shreyas Iyer are also trying to get fit and are expected to be available for selection soon. Earlier K.L. Rahul suffered a back injury in the IPL this year while Shreyas had to undergo a back surgery. K.L. Sources have informed that Rahul will be able to start training in July. If Shreyas is not available in time, one of Sanju Samson, Suryakumar Yadav may be preferred instead.
