The Indian cricket team got knocked out from the recently concluded ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in a very humiliating manner as England defeated India by 10 wickets in the semi-finals and England batters made a mockery of Indian bowling in that match.
It is absolutely true that Indian bowling struggled throughout the tournament and the star pacer Jasprit Bumrah was badly missed. Bumrah who is touted as one of the best pacers of all times didn’t play in the Asia Cup 2022 and the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 because of his back injury.
The 28 years old cricketer was slammed by many at that time because he was back on the field after a break because of an injury and they knew that his absence in the T20 WC would prove costly to the team. He is still recovering from the injury and neither he is a part of the Indian squad which has gone on the New Zealand tour nor he will accompany the team which will go on the tour to Bangladesh where team India will play 3 ODIs and 2 test matches.
Recently, Jasprit Bumrah posted a video of his training session in which he can be seen working very hard but the video didn’t go well with many online users and they asked him to be more careful as the IPL is still 4 months away.
Jasprit Bumrah posted the video with caption, “Never easy, but always worth it”:

Many users told him to focus on the IPL rather than playing for India as in the recent past, he played all the matches in the league but got injured frequently when playing for India.
Here are some selected reactions:

Yaa. Now u vl become fit before Australia test series. So that no one can question u when u play IPL.
You just want to play IPL. And, u vl play test vs AUS so that ppl vl feel that jasprit is thinking about country.
But reality is ur priority is just IPL. Paisa mil jaega.

The only bitter truth is …. The exceptional bowler who has never risen to the occasion during WC semis & Test championship 🏆 Final … The same goes for scary mindset @klrahul

Jasprit Bumrah is an integral part of the IPL team Mumbai Indians and has played an important role in MI’s five IPL wins.
Hopefully, the cricketer will join the Indian team soon and help his team in winning the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
