- India will begin their Asia Cup 2023 campaign vs Pakistan on September 2.
- Jasprit Bumrah will return to play the ODI format since his injury layoff.
- Former India pacer Karsan Ghavri has revealed how Bumrah prepared himself at the NCA.
In an exclusive conversation with Timenownews.com, Ghavri said that Bumrah used to bowl 14 overs at a stretch instead of 10 in order to regain full fitness to bowl in an ODI game. He also said that Bumrah has shortened his run-up.
“I think the BCCI and the NCA is doing extremely well it depends on the players individually you know how much workload they can take and once they go for a rehab programming and just come out in from there and immediately you play a bigger tournament in which workload is little more you are bound to get niggles or injuries somewhere along the line,” Karsan Ghavri said on the sidelines of CEAT Cricket Rating Award a couple of weeks ago.
“So first of all they have to make sure they are more than 100 percent fit after the rehab and everything. See what like Bumrah, I know right now he is bowling in Ireland. He already played two matches and both the matches he picked up wickets. But you know when he was in rehab doing programming at NCA in Banglore, it is not that he was bowling only four overs, he was bowling 10 overs, 14 overs along with Twenty 20 he was practising even for the World Cup also ‘ki mujhe world cup me 10 over daalna padega, to das ki jagah woh 14 over daalta tha’, ( that he need to bowl 10 overs in the World Cup, so he used to bowl 14 overs), know he can sustain, he can go on without getting injuries and since you know what I have seen in him in Ireland, I think he has cut short his run-up also and that is a good thing actually and the way he is bowling I think he will be a key fast bowler for India in the World Cup,” he added.
