Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has not played for the international side since September 2022. Bumrah, who has been irregular in the squad since Indian Premier League 2022 will not be returning anytime soon after he decided to go for surgery to heal his back issues and will be unavailable for a few months now. And, former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir, in an interview with Hindustan Times said that back and knee injuries tend to be career-ending for players and he hoped that Bumrah had enough fight left in him to return to action with full fitness as well.

“What I feel is that Bumrah consistently played cricket for a long time, across formats, and then played in the IPL as well,” Amir told Hindustan Times. “India too play cricket all around the year. He is human. At the end of the day, the body gets tired and it demands rest,” the pace bowler further 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 careers of cricketers. I hope he is strong and is recovering well.”

However, the Indian pace unit is not the same without Jasprit Bumrah but it has done well mostly with Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj. The Indian team will hope to form a core without Bumrah going into the ODI World Cup 2023 as well as set to start in October and November.

“The bowler who has most impressed me is Mohammed Siraj,” Amir said. “If you look at the recent past, he is the most improved bowler in any format. With him, you need to groom 1-2 young bowlers ready because, in about a year or two, players like Shami will also be sticking to a single format,” Mohammad Amir concluded.
