Rohit Sharma Gives BIG Update on Return of Jasprit Bumrah, Skipper Hoping Pacer Will Play THESE two Tests

Team India captain Rohit Sharma is hoping that pace bowler and Mumbai Indians teammate Jasprit Bumrah would return to lead the attack in the last two Tests of the upcoming four-match series against world No. 1 Australia next month. The 29-year-old Burmah, who hasn’t played international cricket since September last year due to a back injury, is not in the India squad for the first two Tests but returned to bowl recently at the National Cricket Academy nets, raising hopes of a comeback in the near future.

“Not too sure about Bumrah, I am hoping he plays next (last) two Tests (against Australia), we don’t want to take any risks with him as back injuries are always critical. We have a lot of cricket coming back after that also,” Rohit said after the third ODI against New Zealand on Tuesday.

“We are in constant touch with physios and doctors in NCA. The medical team will give him as much time as he wants,” he added.

The India captain was speaking at the post-match press conference after leading India to 3-0 ODI series sweep over visiting New Zealand in Indore. Bumrah sustained a lower back stress fracture after the England tour and missed the Asia Cup last year.

He was expected to make his comeback with the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, but after being named in the squad, the pacer was ruled out. The Test series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, which is also part of the World Test Championship (WTC) 2022-23, will begin on February 9 in Nagpur.

The last two Tests are scheduled to be held across the first two weeks of March. To enhance the team’s chances at the T20 World Cup last October-November, Bumrah was rushed to the T20 side during a home series against Australia, where he broke down once again and was ruled out for an indefinite period.
