Team India is preparing for the Bangladesh series but Jasprit Bumrah is not part of this series because of injury. But now it’s good news for India because Bumrah is recovering well and expect that he will back in the Indian team in January 2020. Jasprit Bumrah posted a video on social media in that he was running hard to recover soon. Talking to IANS, A source said that can expect him (Jasprit Bumrah) to be back in Indian colours in January 2020 and the Australia series could be the one.
“He underwent assessment and his recovery is on track. Can expect him (Jasprit Bumrah) to be back in Indian colours in January and the Australia series could be the one,” the source said.
“When you are playing in New Zealand, the bowling becomes all the more important. As you have seen in the past as well, it is more about taking 20 wickets there than scoring big hundreds. So, the team management was very clear that they are happy to wait and have him back at his best in time for the New Zealand tour,” the source pointed.
“That’s probably the most important thing for us right now, managing the workload of players. That’s why he (Bumrah) didn’t play any white-ball cricket after the World Cup because we wanted him to be fresh for the Tests. He is going to be a key factor for us as long as the Test championship continues. We know how good a bowler he is. And the impact he can make in a spell,” Kohli had said after the pacer’s devastating spells in the West Indies Test series.
India will play a three-match T20I series against Bangladesh that will start from today.
