The right arm pacer has remained out of action since last year owing to a recurring back injury.
Jasprit Bumrah will mark his comeback in Indian colors as he leads the side in the three T20I series in Ireland starting August 18.
It won’t be the first time that Bumrah leads an Indian side, having done so in the one-off Test match last summer in England.
Bumrah has been out of action owing to a recurring back injury since September 2022 when he made his last appearance for India during the T2oI bilateral series against Australia at home. The right arm pacer had encountered the same injury earlier during the India tour of England in July 2022 and had missed out on two months of cricket.
Among other additions to the squad, Prasidh Krishna, who last played a game for India during the ODI series against Zimbabwe last year, is also back in the team.
