Jasprit Bumrah, the interim captain of the Indian team for the Ireland series, is considering regaining his form in the series before the Asia Cup and ICC World Cup. Bumrah’s return provided an enormous lift in India’s World Cup preparations. Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif believes a healthy Bumrah could make India a dedicated World Cup contender. If Bumrah returns fully fit, he will be crucial in India’s explosive team. India will suffer the repercussions if Bumrah doesn’t return to his form before the World Cup.
Kaif claims that Rohit is having anxiety over Bumrah’s fitness
Mohammad Kaif, a former Indian cricketer, claimed that only a healthy Jasprit Bumrah could make India a dedicated World Cup contender when discussing the pacer’s comeback season.
Jasprit Bumrah is the interim captain for the Ireland series
Before the Asia Cup and the ICC World Cup, Jasprit Bumrah, who is now healthy, has been considering regaining his form in the Ireland series.
How much time must pass for a Jasprit Bumrah who is physically fit to warm up before crucial events? Since the seasoned pacer will be taking charge of his comeback competition before the Asia Cup in 2023, Bumrah has a difficult task as the temporary skipper of the Indian squad for the Ireland series.
Jasprit Bumrah must deliver a stellar performance in the upcoming Ireland series
India will play three T20Is against Ireland before the continent-wide championship without veteran players Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, and Virat Kohli. The Indian pacer, who has been out for ten months, only has the Ireland tournament to create an outstanding impression before India begins its journey into the World Cup swing with the Asia Cup. Due to a stress fracture in his back, Bumrah is currently out for the entirety of the domestic season.
Rohit suffered significantly last year without Jasprit Bumrah
Last year, Rohit suffered greatly from the absence of Bumrah in the T20 World Cup and Asia Cup. India’s performance in ICC events fell short of standards without the speedster. Bumrah’s return, however, provided Team India an enormous lift in their World Cup preparations. Mohammad Kaif, a former Indian cricketer, claimed that only a healthy Bumrah could make India a dedicated World Cup contender when discussing the pacer’s comeback season.
“The injured players will determine what happens. If he returns fully healthy, I believe Bumrah will be crucial. In the Asia Cup, we’ll find out how strong he is. He is currently traveling to Ireland. I will therefore watch him bowl. India can expect an impressive squad at home if Bumrah is 100% healthy,” Kaif told reporters at the book launch for Pitchside-My Life in Indian Cricket.
India will face the consequences if Bumrah doesn’t return to his form
India and Pakistan will rekindle their storied conflict in the Asia Cup before the commencement of the World Cup. The former Indian cricketer also pointed out that India has yet to find Bumrah’s backup. Therefore, India will suffer the repercussions if Bumrah doesn’t return to his form before the World Cup.
