Jasprit Bumrah, Prasidh Krishna bowl to Mumbai batters ahead of India return

In rather positive news for the Indian cricket fans, star pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna are nearing their returns from injuries. With the World Cup 2023 looming around the corner, their potential returns could prove to be a big boost for Team India.

Both Bumrah and Krishna, as part of their training, bowled to Mumbai batters in practice games at the Alur Grounds in Bangalore. Coincidentally, both pacers sustained stress fractures in their backs and underwent surgeries recently. Bumrah has been out of contention for international selection since 2022, and if he is able to make his return to full fitness, the Indian pace attack could be bolstered to new heights.

As part of his injury, Bumrah missed out on several major tournaments for the Indian team including the Asia Cup 2022, the T20I World Cup 2022, and the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. On the other hand, Prasidh Krishna last played a game for India back in August 2022 and has been out of contention for selection ever since.

As per a report by the Times of India, Bumrah bowled a complete quota of 10 overs, which were divided into two spells. Furthermore, Krishna also bowled to the same batters in the practice games.
