Jasprit Bumrah will finally make his return to international cricket after a long injury layoff as the BCCI's senior selection committee announced the 15-member squad for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Ireland to be played in Dublin. Bumrah has also been appointed skipper for Team India after the second string team was picked for the Ireland tour. The three T20Is will take place on August 18, 20 and 23.
The selectors have also included Karnataka pacer Prasidh Krishna in the squad. The right-arm quick last played for India in an ODI match against Zimbabwe in August last year before undergoing a surgery for stress fracture.
Bumrah underwent a successful back surgery in March, which has kept him out of competitive cricket since a T20I match against Australia in September 2022. Although he briefly returned to action during the Australia T20I series, the injury resurfaced, leading to further setbacks.
Bumrah's road to recovery has been challenging. He was selected for the ODI series against Sri Lanka in January this year after starting his rehabilitation in November the previous year and resuming bowling in December. However, as his fitness drills intensified in January, he experienced discomfort once again.
Jasprit Bumrah returns to lead India in T20I series against Ireland.
The selectors have also included Karnataka pacer Prasidh Krishna in the squad.
