But it does indicate that you have enjoyed a successful year.“Getting selected for the Walker Cup was massive but I didn’t play as well as I would have liked.

Jasprit Bumrah vows to make a stronger return following his injury

first_imgAdvertisement 5ptNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs5czmWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ebky( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) agncWould you ever consider trying this?😱yz98Can your students do this? 🌚uRoller skating! Powered by Firework Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out for the upcoming Test series against South Africa due to a stress fracture in his lower back. He will be replaced by Umesh Yadav in the Test squad for the three-match series which starts October 2 onwards. And on Wednesday, Bumrah vowed to comeback stronger and fitter than ever through an emotional message on Twitter.Advertisement Advertisement “Injuries are part & parcel of the sport. Thank you for all your recovery wishes. My head is held high & I am aiming for a comeback that’s stronger than the setback,” Bumrah posted on Instagram.The Indian team however, will surely miss his services, after his exceptional performances in the recent years. The Mumbai Indians pacer took 13 wickets from 2 Tests at an average of just 9.23 against West Indies last month, which also included a hat-trick in the second game. His outstanding spell of 5 for 7 in the first Test along with the hat-trick in the Jamaica Test, saw him rise in the ICC Test bowlers rankings with 835 points to seal the third spot in the list.Bumrah was supposed to play his first Test on home soil during India’s first test against South Africa in Visakhapatnam. But it now appears that he has to wait a bit longer before playing Tests at home for at least 2 months when neighbours Bangladesh come to play a series of two Tests from November 14.The pacer has become an icon in India’s bowling department with 62 wickets at an average of 19.24. Most importantly, all his wickets came against tough opponents like South Africa, England and Australia in their home soil. And he is the only pacer from the subcontinent to take 5-wicket hauls in those countries. Advertisementlast_img read more
