What will happen when Bumrah will be fit to play in the Tests?

Updated: Feb 21, 2023

When Jaspreet Bumrah returns to full fitness, the Indian Team's selectors will be in a great dilemma in order to pick the best bowler combinations for the team from an array of quality pacers. Bumrah is known for his ability to produce unplayable yorkers and slower balls, and his bowling will be a great asset to Team India. His presence in the team will also provide a great boost of confidence to the Team. The return of Jaspreet Bumrah to Team India's playing XI can turn out to be a great opportunity for the team to enhance their bowling attack and make it even more dangerous.


In today's time, Team India has the luxury of options for every role in the team. As pacers, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj have been very consistent performers for Team India. However, Mohammed Shami is not India's first-choice pacer in the shorter formats where a lot of opportunities have been presented to youngsters like Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, Shivam Mavi, Shardul Thakur, etc., and especially to Jasprit Bumrah, being the first choice, and leader of India's pace attack in limited-overs formats.

But when it comes to the longest format Mohammed Shami has been consistent with his performances over the years in India and abroad.

Therefore, with the rise of Mohammed Siraj by making a remarkable impression in absence of Jaspreet Bumrah- it will be a very difficult situation for the captain Rohit Sharma when Jasprit Bumrah comes in as India would ideally be playing with two pacers at home. It will indeed be a very tough call to select two from these three bowlers to be in the playing XI.
