Jasprit Bumrah, the pacer of the country, made his fans very happy on Tuesday by posting an update on social media about his comeback from a lower back injury that he suffered during the second test against West Indies in the month of September.
After Jasprit Bumrah was found suffering from a fracture in the lower back, he missed the South Africa Tests. Bumrah was expected to be on the sidelines for a long duration but the country’s bowling coach, Bharat Arun, confirmed that the pacer would be back “sooner than later”.
Bharat Arun also said that Bumrah need not undergo surgery for a stress fracture. Notably, the in-form fast bowler had gone to the UK for consultations about the injury with Ashish Kaushik, the National Cricket Academy’s chief physio.

Bumrah posted his photo from a gym session and wrote, “coming soon” as a caption.
Bumrah is expected to be back for the National Team in the next major assignment, that is, a tour to New Zealand between the months of January and February 2020.
Bharat Arun, with expectations from the bowler to return soon, had said, “Despite our best efforts, there can be no guarantees. We expect Bumrah to be back sooner than later, hopefully in time for the New Zealand Test series that is our next big challenge.”
Bumrah was not named for the upcoming 2-Test series against Bangladesh in the month of November. Umesh Yadav, who substituted him for the Test series against South Africa, retained his place in the squad.
In the absence of Bumrah, Umesh Yadav took a step and delivered as the Vidarbha pacer along with Mohammed Shami created a lot of problems for South Africa during their historic 3-0 whitewash.
