Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been on the road to recovery from an injury which has kept him out of action for quite some time now. The celebrated fast bowler is currently training with the Committee of Administrators (CoA) rejected trainer Rajnikanth Sivagnanam in a bid to regain fitness and return to the field. Notably, the cricketer is eyeing to return to action during the series against New Zealand next year.

The 25-year-old Jasprit Bumrah sustained a minor stress fracture in his lower back in September which kept him out of the series against South Africa and Bangladesh. Many expected Jasprit Bumrah to return to action for the Test series against the Bangla Tigers, but the management doesn’t want to risk him considering the ICC T20 World Cup looming ahead.
Jasprit Bumrah trains with Delhi trainer to recover
In a bid to regain his fitness, Bumrah has been training with Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Capitals trainer Rajnikanth Sivagnanam in Delhi to make a come back. Meanwhile, Team India cricketers generally train at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) to recover from injuries, but the legacy of NCA created by Shankar Basu has once again fallen flat. Incidentally, the CoA rejected him earlier this earlier when they preferred Nick Webb as Team India trainer.
Meanwhile, there has been a debate with the quality of trainers at the NCA. Recently, all-rounder, Hardik Pandya has also not visited the academy in Bengaluru as he continues to recover from surgery. Recently a report in IANS stated a BCCI official not only questioned the turn of events but also asked if the process followed in the appointment during the CoA regime needs a re-look.
