Jasprit Bumrah must have sorely missed his position in Team India that defeated Bangladesh in the day-night Pink Ball Test, thanks to the other fast bowlers, grabbing the Test series 2–0.
Bumrah was kept out of this bowling attack due to injury. He is trying to make a comeback and how! He shared an image of a broken stump on social media after a practice session on Tuesday.
Bumrah shared this photo on Twitter and gave a message that he was on his way back. Bumrah wrote with the photo, “The End,” suggesting that the period of his staying out of the team was over. He has been out since the series against South Africa. He has a stress fracture problem. It is expected that he will be available for the team’s tour of New Zealand next year.
Injured Bumrah was ruled out of the Gandhi-Mandela series against South Africa. He then went to London for consultation regarding the injury.
Indian team paceman Ishant Sharma took 12 wickets in the series against Bangladesh. Mohammad Shami got a share of nine wickets while Umesh Yadav took 12 wickets.
In the absence of Bumrah, the Indian fast attack is relying on the medium pace of Ishant Sharma and faster Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav.
Bumrah also has a sob story
Bumrah was in the news nevertheless last month due to a sob story. His mother Daljit and he narrated the financial distress they faced in the initial days through a video released on social media.
Mumbai Indians had shared that video using their Twitter handle. Bumrah’s mother Daljit said, “I lost my husband when Jasprit was five years old.” Bumrah added to her mother’s story by saying, ‘I had nothing but a pair of shoes and a T-shirt.”
Bumrah said, “I used to have only one cricket dress. We used to wash it before every match so that we could wear it again. In childhood, you hear stories that someone saw you playing and chose you, but this happened to me in reality.” In the video, Mumbai Indians’ owner Nita Ambani is seen praising Jasprit.
Getting emotional, Daljit had said that when Jasprit was very young, she went to a showroom to get him good shoes, but the shoes were more expensive than expected. “We were short of money; so we could not buy those shoes. Then Jasprit told me, ‘One day I will buy these shoes. And today he really has severalpairs of shoes’.”
