Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been seen bowling at full steam as the Men in Blue prepare for the first T20I against Ireland. Returning from an almost year-long injury layoff, Bumrah brought out some serious pace in a Team India net session in Dublin. The Mumbai Indians speedster, who will also lead the Indian team against the Irish, will hope to get back to his 100%, especially with major tournaments like the Asia Cup and the World Cup in a short space of time.

In a video shared by Team India’s Instagram, Bumrah is seen bouncing away a right-handed batter with a mean bouncer before delivering one of his trademark toe-crushing yorkers. Sharing this excitement, the post on Instagram was captioned saying, “The moment we have all been waiting for. @jaspritb1 like we have always known him.”
