The fourth match of the four-match series between India and Australia will be played tomorrow at 9:30 am in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. Meanwhile, some bad news is emerging for Team India. In fact, one match-winner player of the Indian cricket team will not be able to play cricket for six months.
This is the biggest setback for Team India. India can play the World Test Championship 2023 final match against Australia on the Oval ground from 7 June. Team India will also play in the 2023 Asia Cup. In such a situation, the news of this match-winning player being out of cricket for six months is very bad.
In fact, Jasprit Bumrah has undergone surgery on his back in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. News is coming from New Zealand that the operation was successful and Jasprit Bumrah is fine. The back surgery of Jasprit Bumrah was performed by a renowned orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rovan Scouthead, at Fort Orthopedics Hospital in Christchurch.
Sources have revealed that Jasprit Bumrah will not play cricket for at least 6 months. It will take at least 6 months for Jasprit Bumrah to recover. Meanwhile, it is believed that it will be difficult for Jasprit Bumrah to recover before the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, which is scheduled to take place at the end of this year.
Jasprit Bumrah has been away from cricket since September last year due to an injury. After undergoing back surgery, it will take at least 6 months for him to recover. India is set to host the 2023 World Cup in October-November this year. In such a situation, it is difficult for Jasprit Bumrah to achieve full fitness for the 2023 World Cup.
However, it can be estimated that Bumrah can participate in nets by August, which is the suggested 6-month recovery time. He will not be able to participate in the tournament in any case, along with the 2023 Asia Cup, which is set to begin in September.
A hospital official refused to comment on Jasprit, stating that no questions will be directed to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). It is believed that former New Zealand fast bowler Shane Bond recommended Dr. Shaunton to the BCCI, who is now the bowling coach for Mumbai Indians, where Bumrah plays in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Bond himself denies making the suggestion in question, but sources from the board say that the recovery process could take a maximum of 24 weeks and the pacer should be hitting the nets by August. It is possible that he may not be able to play in the Asia Cup in September, but there is hope that Bumrah can be fully prepared for the World Cup.
