India's ace fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was seen bowling at the nets with Ishant Sharma on Wednesday. This is a positive sign for India ahead of the Test series as Bumrah had injured his thumb and was ruled out of the first Test against England.

The 24-year-old right-arm pacer had sustained the injury during the T20I against Ireland on 27th June and underwent an operation in England. He had to miss the entire limited overs series against England due to the same reason.

Despite the injury, he was included in the squad for the first three Tests, which shows that he is a vital cog in the Test setup as well.

In the three matches he has played in the format, Bumrah as bagged 14 wickets at an average of 25.21.
