Jasprit Bumrah’s injury: Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Amir said he hopes Indian cricketer Jasprit Bumrah is recovering well from the back injury that is set to rule him out of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.
Jasprit Bumrah is likely to miss the entirety of the 2023 IPL and is also a doubt for the World Test Championship final which India have qualified for.
Jasprit Bumrah has been out of action since the September of 2022 and he recently underwent back surgery in New Zealand. But it is unclear at this point when the right-arm fast bowler can return to action.
Since suffering the injury, Jasprit Bumrah has missed the 2022 Asia Cup, the T20 World Cup, and the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He continues to spend time on the sidelines with reports suggesting the Mumbai Indians bowler will miss the upcoming edition of IPL, which kicks off at the end of March.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Amir was asked whether he saw Jasprit Bumrah’s injury coming given the Indian cricketer’s bowling action.
Mohammad Amir pointed out that Jasprit Bumrah consistently played cricket for a long time and that it ultimately takes a toll on the body.
“What I feel is that Bumrah consistently played cricket for a long time, across formats, and then played in IPL as well. India plays cricket all around the year. He is human. At the end of the day, the body gets tired and it demands rest,” Mohammad Amir said.
The Pakistani cricketer also said back and knee injuries for a bowler are two things he would not even wish for his enemies as it tends to end the careers of cricketers.
Mohammad Amir added: “I always say, back and knee injuries for a bowler are two which I wouldn’t even wish for my enemy. It tends to end the careers of cricketers. I hope he is strong and is recovering well.”
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians, who are the most successful side in the history of IPL, will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 2nd in their first match of the new edition. But Mumbai Indians will likely have to do without Jasprit Bumrah, one of their key players.
