After his return, Bumrah was named in India’s squad for the 2023 Asia Cup. He played his first match in this series against Pakistan, scoring 16 runs in 14 balls. However, the match was abandoned due to rain. He was replaced by Mohammed Shami for the match against Nepal as he had to return to Mumbai for personal reasons.
