Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah is back with the national side. He has been included in the One-Day International (ODI) squad for the upcoming three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, starting next Tuesday. Since last September, he has been out of cricketing action with a back injury. The injury also forced him to skip the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia, where the Indians were ousted in the semis by eventual champion England. He was rehabilitated at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru and has been deemed fit to return to competitive cricket. He is scheduled to join the Men in Blue soon to begin preparations for his return, reports Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). At the same time, he is expected to be vital for the side’s preparations for the ICC World Cup 2023.
