Jasprit Bumrah
Bumrah suffered a back injury which ruled him out of the Asia Cup and the ICC T20 World Cup.

Irfan Pathan, in an exclusive interaction with Star Sports, spoke on the importance of the ODI series, who the openers should be, and the injury scares for some of the key players in the team.

Irfan Pathan also spoke on Bumrah’s return to the squad and how vital he is to Team India.

“Look, I’m very sceptical about Jasprit Bumrah’s comeback. I’m hoping that he will not have an injury effect on his bowling. But I hope he is more than 100% fit, which is what I want to look at because a player like Bumrah is very important to the Indian team,” he said.

“For him to play consistently and remain fit is of utmost importance because finding a player of his quality is very rare, so to manage him and for him to manage his body and to keep his fitness levels on top as well as to keep his mind on recovering from his stress injury and go under rehabilitation, and to continue to grow and move forward as a cricketer is of vital importance not only to Bumrah but for the team management as well.”
