Bumrah's return could take longer; this is doubtful even for the IPL and the final WTC


Jasprit Bumrah might be out for longer than expected because it seems like his injury is more serious than first assumed. The India skipper is now listed as having a very low probability of playing in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL), which begins in roughly a month and runs through May, even if India makes it to the World Test Championship (WTC) final, which will take place in the UK in June.

IPL and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) sources claim that Bumrah, who has not represented India in international competition in nearly five months, has not been feeling well and is considering taking a potentially lengthy break.

Sources claim that the Indian team's objective is to prepare him for the World Cup in October and November, if not the Asia Cup, wherever it takes place.

Bumrah was reportedly not cleared by the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for the three ODIs against Australia in March, according to a recent Cricbuzz article. Bumrah last represented his nation on September 25 in a T20I match against Australia. The most current information, however, suggests that the NCA won't pressure him into taking action because things haven't quite gone as anticipated.

It was initially assumed that Bumrah's return to the IPL would not be a huge concern because he would just bowl four overs every game because the original plan was for him to handle the workload gently and an IPL return would match the plans.

The Indian team, NCA, and BCCI management are reportedly creating a precisely organized itinerary for his return. But, it will now take longer.
