The fast bowler had not only suffered an injury, but also had to miss out on several matches and series for the team. Bumrah had also faced a lot of trolling for not being present in the T20 World Cup 2022. 

However, Bumrah is set to join the blue army in the T20 World Cup 2024 and will be a key asset in the team, as a veteran pacer. 

Bumrah looks forward to enjoying the game

Jasprit Bumrah seems to be in a good mental place as he is quite content with knowing that he can’t change things that can not be controlled. Bumrah will be a key player for the Indian team in the T20 World Cup 2024 with his pacers and yorkers.

Bumrah stressed on enjoying the game rather than focusing on the end result, which helped him come back for India last year.

“Since I have come back from my injury, I have only focused on enjoying the game as much as I can,” Bumrah added, trying to focus on the process rather than the uncertainty surrounding the game,” Bumrah told ICC.

“Because (certain) things will go my way. (Certain) things will not go my way. All of these things will be a part of my process. So I have just realised that I started playing this sport. Because I love this sport. And I will focus on that rather than the end result.”

“So, in that aspect, you reduce your pressure. And you enjoy the sport. When you focus on those things. Rather than the things you cannot control.” He added. 

Bumrah recalls childhood story

Jasprit Bumrah also indulged on reminiscing about his childhood, back when he practiced his yorkers with a tennis ball. 

“So I played a lot of tennis-ball, rubber-ball cricket when I was growing up,” Bumrah said. “I used to play a lot with my friends in summer camps. And on summer vacations. Or whenever you used to get a lot of time.

So when I was a kid, I used to think that this is the only way to get wickets. Because I was a fan of fast bowling. I was really fascinated by what I saw on the television. So I tried to replicate that.” Jasprit said

“Is it (tennis-ball cricket) a secret (to bowling yorkers) or not? I don’t know,” Bumrah asked.

“But repetition surely is. Because I have kept this delivery. I still practice it. I keep on practicing it. Because every skill that you develop, you have to practice it and make it stronger. So, I think a combination of both would be the answer.” He added

India vs Bangladesh Warm Up game 

Ahead of their first match for the T20 World Cup 2024, India will be taking part in a warm up match, against Bangladesh.

The first match for India in the WT20C is on 5 June against Ireland in the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. India vs Bangladesh match on the other hand, will be held on June 1, in the same stadium.

The warm up match is to be a 40-over affair  with both teams looking to put on their best show and learning the best tricks to apply in the upcoming matches for the T20 World Cup 2024.

Bangladesh had also participated in a 3-match series against hosts USA, and got an embarrassing 1-2 loss after one match being washed out due to rain. The USA team being relatively new in the game, had surprised and impressed cricket enthusiasts from all around.
