Bumrah has begun training at the NCA in Bengaluru and is expected to play in the final two Tests against Australia.
Former Australia pacer Jeff Thomson stated that given his workload, team India pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah will need to prioritise the formats of the sport. Bumrah made his IPL debut in 2013, and he quickly established himself as a lethal pacer across all three formats. Bumrah hasn’t slowed down in all these years, but the pacer’s injury woes have always troubled him.
However, the premier pacer has been out of action for India due to a back injury since September of last year. Despite the fact that he was expected to return for the ODI series against Sri Lanka, the pacer complained of back pain and was later ruled out of the squad.Thomson believes the pacer will need to decide which format of the game he wants to concentrate on.
“Well, he (Jasprit Bumrah) has to decide whether he wants to play short formats, Test matches, or both. If I were playing now, it would be extremely difficult for me to play Test matches. Especially since you get so much money in the short version of the game, which only increases your longevity. We didn’t have to think about money back then because there wasn’t any. “It’s now a huge business,” Jeff was quoted as saying.
