IPL 2019: Will Jasprit Bumrah bowl to RCB after shoulder injury?
Jasprit Bumrah landed rigidly on his left shoulder while fielding during the Sunday's IPL match against the Delhi Capitals in Mumbai.
Bengaluru: India's pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, who's recovering from a shoulder injury joined his IPL team Mumbai Indians' practice session but did not bowl at the Chinnaswamy stadium on Tuesday.
However, the Indian pacer was seen bowling in the nets to Mumbai Indian batsmen on Wednesday. Though the signs seem positive, it has left a question mark among fans if he is fit enough to bowl to the Royal Challengers Bangalore in today's face-off.
A vital cog in India's World Cup plans, Bumrah landed awkwardly on his left shoulder while fielding during the Sunday's IPL match against the Delhi Capitals in Mumbai.
He did not travel with his MI teammates on Monday but flew in to Bengaluru on Tuesday.
Although, Bumrah was seen running along with his teammates for nearly 20 minutes, and he looked in fine fettle. He also participated in a catching drill with Anmol Singh.
He took chest-high as well as low catches and threw the balls with ease.
On Tuesday, he was seen discussing with Zaheer Khan, who is MI's director of cricket operations, for the most part of the net session and was later spotted bowling on Wednesday.
Bumrah also was seen having an animated talk with rival Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli for nearly 15 minutes.
Towards the end of the practice session on Tuesday, Bumrah spent few light moments with Paul Chapman, who is Mumbai's strength and conditioning coach.
The national team relies heavily on Bumrah, who has earned the reputation of being the world's best bowler in death overs.
