Bumrah added to India’s ODI squad for Sri Lanka series

Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been named in India’s team for its three one-day internationals against Sri Lanka after recuperating from a back ailment, the country’s cricket body said on Tuesday.

Bumrah, 29, missed the Twenty20 World Cup, which India lost to England in the semifinals, because he hasn’t been active since September.

“The pacer has undergone rehabilitation and has been declared fit by the National Cricket Academy (NCA). He will be joining the Team India ODI squad soon,” the BCCI said in a statement.

Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik, and Arshdeep Singh will all be part of India’s pace attack alongside Bumrah, known as the Yorker King for his ability to bowl the bone-crushing ball.

The first of three T20 internationals between India and Sri Lanka will be played at home on Tuesday. The ODI matches will follow on January 10.
