Asia Cup 2023: Coach Dravid Made A Big Revelation On Jasprit Bumrah’s Return: The biggest news has been the return of Jasprit Bumrah to the Indian cricket team before the Asia Cup.

Asia Cup 2023: Coach Dravid Made A Big Revelation On Jasprit Bumrah’s Return

The good thing is that Bumrah is returning after leading the Indian team brilliantly in the T20 series against Ireland. Meanwhile, head coach Rahul Dravid has made a big revelation on the return of Bumrah.

Indian cricket team head coach Rahul Dravid in his press conference before flying to Sri Lanka indicated that Bumrah will be brought into full action at a slow pace.

He said, ‘It is great to see Bumrah and the famous Krishna coming back and bowling well. Jasprit is someone we have missed a lot, he hasn’t played much in the last two years. We will gradually include them in this.

The head coach said that the ‘Ireland tour was a good opportunity to easily include him in the team. We have a whole month to prepare him before the World Cup 2023. The return of these two will give us more options in the fast bowling department.’

The former India skipper also felt that the home advantage for teams from the subcontinent has reduced significantly in the last decade as overseas players are regularly competing in conditions, with the IPL being a major attraction.

Dravid said that ‘The home advantage in the subcontinent has reduced to a great extent in the last 10-12 years. People come here and play a lot, especially in tournaments like IPL. They stay here for three months and get used to the conditions. In such a situation, it will be a tough tournament. Actually, India’s first match in Asia Cup 2023 will be against Pakistan on 2 September and against Nepal on 4 September.
