Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah Injury Updates; Can miss T20 World Cup

Jasprit Bumrah is making good progress despite missing the Asia Cup in 2022 due to an old back issue. He has returned to Mumbai from Bengaluru, where he spent a week training at the National Cricket Academy, to complete his recovery. His prognosis was not promising, and he might not have played in the T20 World Cup. The NCA and BCCI physios are upbeat about his availability for the T20 World Cup in Australia, though. He might return in the series against Australia and South Africa.

“He has made good progress on his recovery. We are in constant touch with the physios. Nitin (Patel) is keeping a regular tab while he is away from NCA. We are hopeful that he will be coming back in Australia or South Africa series and definitely for T20 World Cup. But it’s still too early to say,” a senior BCCI official said (to insidesport).
