IND vs SL: India’s premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been away from cricketing action for quite a while. He was last seen playing for India during a T20I against Australia back in September 2022.
The right-arm paceman was ruled out of two important tournaments earlier. He missed Asia Cup 2022 and ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 owing to a knee injury.
Team India badly missed the pacer’s services in the previous two tournaments. The Men in Blue failed to bring the best out of themselves and ended up getting eliminated from both competitions.
Just a week ago, it was confirmed that Jasprit Bumrah was back into the mix for the ODI series against the Sri Lankan national cricket team.
