The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) has announced the squad for the Ireland series. With most of the core group set to attend a camp before the Asia Cup 2023, we will see some of the young blood playing in this series. Rinku Singh and Jitesh Sharma get the reward for their outstanding performance in the IPL 2023. Jitesh will be one of the wicketkeeping options alongside Sanju Samson.

Other IPL performances have also been recognized

Some of the players who did well in the Indian Premier League IPL 2023 will be in action during the Ireland series. Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, and Shivam Dube’s performances help them to be in the Indian Team squad. All 4 will also be a part of the Asian Games squad for Team India.

Shahbaz and Sundar are also in the squad

The Indian Team will go with three spinners in the squad. W Sundar and Shahbaz Ahmed will be the two-finger spinners on the team. Ravi Bishnoi is the only wrist spinner in the team.

2nd string pace attack

As far as the pace attack is concerned, we will see the 2nd string pace attack alongside Jasprit Bumrah. We will also see the return of Prasidh Krishna, who was out of action due to injury.

Jasprit Bumrah is back in the Indian Team

BCCI secretary Jay Shah already confirmed the comeback of Jasprit Bumrah in the Ireland series a few days ago. And now good news came today (July 31), when the squad for the Ireland series was announced. He played his last international match against Australia on September 25 in Hyderabad. It was a T20I match in which India won by 6 wickets. But Bumrah conceded 50 runs in his 4 overs without even taking a single wicket.

Positive news for Team India

It is a major boost for the Indian Team as they badly want Jasprit Bumrah to be fully fit before the ICC World Cup 2023. Jasprit Bumrah coming back will strengthen the Indian pace attack for the Asia Cup and ICC WC 2023. His ability to pick wickets at the important time and to restrict runs in the last few overs has been missed during the last year or so.

A Good Match Time For Jasprit Bumrah

An Ireland series will be a good game time for Jasprit Bumrah before two big events (Asia Cup and ODI WC). The team can access his fitness in the game, which is very important after you came back from a long injury.

Bumrah has been bowling in the nets and to the local Mumbai players during an intra-squad match. But match fitness will be a different thing altogether. This series will help them to get back to the rhythm.

Not Rushing Bumrah’s Comeback

Last year as well, the team management rushed Jasprit Bumrah’s comeback in the team after his back issues. As a result, his injury recurred during a home T20I series against Australia, and it put him out of action for 327 days. So the team will be absolutely sure about his 100% fitness this time. They don’t want him to be rushed into the side as the last time.

Jasprit Bumrah is so important for the Indian Team in the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup 2023 and also in future going forward.

Bumrah To Lead The Side As Well

Jasprit Bumrah also becomes the captain of the side which will play 3 T20Is against Ireland. He is one of the senior members of the squad and also captained one test against England last year in the absence of Rohit Sharma. Team India lost that test as England chased down a big target of 380+ with 7 wickets left.

Ruturaj Gaikwad will be his deputy. Gaikwad will also lead the side in Asian Games 2023 in October.
