Jasprit Bumrah have not played much cricket since the world cup last summer. After the tournament, he was declared injured and was sidelined for few months.
He recovered to his fullest and was selected for the New Zealand tour. But the match winner did not replicate his form prior to the injury. He showed signs of rustiness in the series where India were left clueless in ODI and Test series.
However, the corona break would have surely helped Bumrah to get back into his groove. He is one of the key players for Mumbai this season, if they want to retain the title. The team are eager to take up the challenge.
Playing in UAE meant that no side will have a significant home advantage. All the teams also brought players keeping in mind that IPL 2020 will take place in India. But with this crisis, teams have to readjust their tactics and personnel for IPL 2020. The tournament will begin on September 19. Mumbai Indians are scheduled to take on Chennai Super Kings in the curtain raiser.
