A Hunger for the Game

The year 2023 holds monumental challenges with the Asia Cup and the ODI World Cup on the horizon. Bumrah's return couldn't be more timely. He revealed his eagerness to dive into the action, having utilized his time in the nets and practice matches to regain his rhythm. 

His intensity remains undiluted, as he remarked, “I was bowling normally [in the nets]. It's not like I am holding back. I am enjoying it quite a lot. I've done a lot of net sessions here. When my rehabilitation ended, I went home too and even practiced with the Gujarat team. I've done a lot of net sessions in a lot of places, and even played a lot of practice matches,” said Bumrah.

"So it's not like I am bowling with a restriction or I am holding back. Obviously when you're with the Indian team and here where the weather is good, you enjoy bowling. I am not holding back, the body feels good and I'm looking forward to the games coming up," Bumrah added.

Jasprit Bumrah's return is not just a comeback; it's a testament to his character, resilience, and unyielding commitment. As the cricketing world eagerly awaits his toe-crushers and match-winning performances, Bumrah's journey is a true inspiration.
