India star pacer Jasprit Bumrah appeared to be in the best physical condition as he bowled against Mumbai batters in a practice game in Bengaluru. Bumrah underwent rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy and is soon expected to be back in the India team. However, he is expected to play a few warm-up matches before the final decision is made.
A video has been doing circulation on social media, where Bumrah could be seen bowling at full pace. According to a report by Times of India, Bumrah bowled a total of 10 overs to Mumbai batters, which were divided in two spells. The stats of Bumrah’s bowling spell in ‘match stimulation’ read 10-2-34-1, with opener Angkrish Raghuvanshi being his only wicket.

Notably, the 29-year-old pacer suffered lower back stress fracture and underwent surgery recently. The Ahmedabad-born cricketer was last seen on India’s side in September 2022. Bumrah missed the Asia Cup 2022, T20I World Cup as well as the IPL 2023.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently shared a health update of the India pacer. Not only this, but there have been speculations that he can be a part of India's T20I squad for the upcoming Ireland series, scheduled for next month.
