The fiery Indian fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah has been in and out of the Indian squad in the last couple of years, owing to his back injury. After missing out on the Asia Cup 2022 earlier this year, he made a comeback during Australia’s tour of India but worsened his injury during the T20I series. Due to his failure to recover well, he was ruled out of the T20 World Cup 2022 as well, which handed the Indian side a major blow.
Jasprit Bumrah was declared fit for the Australia series and he was seen taking part in a couple of games but was ruled out of the South Africa series due to back pain. The Indian cricket fans have been waiting to see Bumrah back in action. Though the pace unit has been doing well, especially youngster Arshdeep Singh, Bumrah’s absence is felt in the team.
On Friday, November 25, the senior fast bowler provided a crucial update on his injury and shared a video of his intense workout and training session on Instagram.
In the video, Jasprit Bumrah can be seen sweating it out at an indoor training facility. Sharing the video, he wrote: “Never easy, but always worth it.”

The Men in Blue are currently in New Zealand for a three-match ODI series after the successful completion of the T20I series which took place last week. The T20I side was led by Hardik Pandya, while Shikhar Dhawan is leading the ODI squad. Most of the senior players have been rested for the tour as they are now gearing up for the Bangladesh tour that follows next.
India will then be visiting Bangladesh next month for three ODIs and two Tests. BCCI announced India’s ODI squad for the series, which saw Rohit Sharma will be leading the team KL Rahul will be serving as his deputy. Virat Kohli will also be back in action, but the two big players who missed the T20 World Cup, Ravindra Jadeja, and Bumrah, continue to be out of the setup.
Like Bumrah, Jadeja also missed the Asia Cup 2022, though partially, and the World Cup due to a knee injury, but he is expected to be back for the Test series. The BCCI is yet to announce the squad for the two Tests.
