After 3 months, Bumrah took the field for India on September 23, 2022, against Australia in the second T20I of the series. With defeat at a touching distance, the Indian contingency had no other option but to get Bumrah back in the mix of things. Come the third T20I, the Indian pacer looked far from his best and he ended up conceding 50 runs in his quota of 4 overs.

Bumrah's compatriot Hardik Pandya, in the past had been very vocal about the pacer's condition and said that he deserves some time to recover. Now Bumrah has penned down an emotional tweet that reads, "I am gutted that I won’t be a part of the T20 World Cup this time, but thankful for the wishes, care, and support I’ve received from my loved ones. As I recover, I’ll be cheering on the team through their campaign in Australia".
