India pacer Jasprit Bumrah has returned home for personal reasons, and will be back for the Asia Cup in a few days.

This means that Bumrah will be missing the clash against Nepal on September 4, Monday, and will be back in time for the Super 4s clash.

According to sources, Jasprit Bumrah and Sanjana Ganesan are expecting the birth of their first child.

Bumrah, a key player in the Indian cricket team, made a significant comeback to international cricket after a long hiatus due to a back injury. His return was eagerly anticipated, given his reputation for delivering under pressure and his unique bowling style. Bumrah's journey back to the field was marked by careful management of his workload during rehabilitation, with a focus on preparing him for the World Cup.

Bumrah's return to the field was first tested in a series against Ireland, where he demonstrated his readiness by taking two wickets in his first over. Despite having extended his run-up slightly and bowling within his limits, Bumrah's performance held out hope for his return to white

ball cricket.

The Indian pacer, who captained the side during the tour of Ireland, picked up four wickets in the two matches. This would open the door for him to be back in contention for the Asia Cup squad.

In the Asia Cup 2023, Bumrah's performance was noteworthy. In the match against Pakistan, he did not get a chance to bowl but contributed significantly with his batting, scoring a valuable 16 runs off just 14 balls. This performance was particularly impressive given that Bumrah is primarily known for his bowling rather than his batting skills. However, for personal reasons, he was set to miss India's group stage game against Nepal.

In Bumrah's absence, India will be forced to bring back Mohammed Shami into the lineup, who has worked as Mohammed Siraj's bowling partner in recent times. Shardul Thakur was selected in favour of Shami for the match against Pakistan.

India vs Pakistan was washed out due to rain and a win against Nepal will be necessary for Rohit Sharma and Co to make their way into the Super 4s, which will begin on September 6.
