Bumrah travelled to London with the National Cricket Academy’s (NCA) chief physio Ashish Kaushik for consultations regarding his injury. Following it, the India bowling coach Bharat Arun informed recently that the bowler would not require any surgery and hoped for his return before India’s tour of New Zealand.
“Fast bowling is an unnatural activity. Despite our best efforts, there can be no guarantees. We expect Bumrah to be back sooner than later, hopefully in time for the New Zealand Test series that is our next big challenge. As of now, he doesn’t need surgery,” Arun was quoted as saying in an interview with The Hindu.
Bumrah has risen up to the rank to become India’s leading pacer in just three years after making his debut in the national colours.
