Team India and the Mumbai Indians have been missing star-pacer Jasprit Bumrah. The attacking fast-bowler has been out of action, due to a back injury. And this has forced him to be in recovery. During this time, Bumrah has already missed the IPL 2023 tournament. And he will not be part of the WTC final as well.
The fans are hopeful that he can be ready on time for the 50-over World Cup. However, it will be really tough for him to make it to the team, with some other pacers on fire at present. Despite that, Jasprit Bumrah is a fighter and he will try his best to make it to the squad.
But despite all the hope, it is just plain and simple optimism. There is very little chance that he can be fit to play the whole tournament. And the BCCI and selectors may not take the risk of having him in the squad.
Jasprit Bumrah Sends Out Cryptic Picture With Bowling Spikes; What Does This Mean!?
The last time Jasprit Bumrah tried to make an early return, he got injured once again. And things did not work out as per plan. So, he will not want to make the same mistake this time around. Yes, playing in the 50-over World Cup is every player’s dream. However, as we saw with Jorfa Archer for the Mumbai Indians, not every player has the perfect return.
And that is something Bumrah will be wary of. However, despite such doom and gloom, the attacker posted something positive.
Below is the post shared by Jasprit Bumrah!!

Well, at the end of the day, Team India and the fans will want him to get back to full fitness and form first. Only then do they want to see him on the pitch. The last time he made a return, he got torn apart. This is not something that any Indian cricket fan would want.

The 50-over World Cup comes once in every 4 years. And every player wants to take part in it and do their best. The hopes of millions and in the case of India, billions is on their players and the team. The likes of Jasprit Bumrah and co. would not want to miss the tournament at any cost.
But, everything would depend on his fitness levels. And how fast he can prepare himself to get ready for the World Cup in time. It will not be easy at all, knowing his prior history with injuries. But Bumrah’s sheer will and determination could help him overcome all these problems.
Let’s wait and watch to see how things develop in the days to come. For now, the focus of the Indian fans is on the WTC final. It is a game that Jasprit Bumrah will not be involved in for sure. So, let’s see what happens post that match against Australia. Only time will tell!!
