After Jasprit Bumrah returned from injury in the opening T20I match against Ireland on Friday, August 18, at Malahide Cricket Club in Dublin, former India pacer Atul Wassan commented on him and claimed that the Men in Blue captain in the Ireland tour won’t be able to reach his peak.
After returning from injury, Jasprit Bumrah put on a fantastic performance in the opening match. Bumrah, who was in charge of the Indian bowling assault, finished with two wickets and 24 runs conceded in his four overs.
Rain stopped play before the second innings began, and India used the DLS technique to win by two runs.
Ruturaj Gaikwad played a 19-run innings from 16 balls, and Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 24 runs from 23 balls. Sansju Samson’s lone run did, however, help India win the three-game series.
Atul Wassan expressed concern for Jasprit Bumrah and warned that if the pacer pushed himself to attain his peak form, he might damage himself once more.
“I believe that because of his back ailment, Bumrah’s effort will be evident. If he is restricting himself, he will advance professionally. According to Atul Wassan, who was quoted by India.com, “Whatever he achieved with this action, this damage was likely to come if he obtains the same intensity and gets hurt again.

The former pacer said, “If he plays like he did in the first T20I match, Jasprit Bumrah will be able to reform himself, which will help him to perform better.”
“A biomechanist cannot play a rapid game with such strange actions, it is not possible. You’re going to get hurt while you’re young. Following an injury, you can rebuild yourself if you take these steps. You will be able to play better if you change. Wassan continued, “I want him to come back, but I don’t think he will reach his peak like we have seen him.
