He did not travel with his MI team-mates on Monday but flew in here separately on Tuesday. MI play against Royal Challengers Bangalore here on Thursday.

Bumrah was seen running along with his team-mates for nearly 20 minutes and he looked in fine fettle. He also participated in a catching drill with Anmol Singh.

He took chest-high as well as low catches and threw the balls with ease.

Bumrah, however, did not bowl at the nets. He was seen having a discussion with Zaheer Khan, who is MI’s Director of Cricket Operations, for most part of the net session. (ALSO READ: Bumrah’s injury gives Kohli sleepless night, pacer fit)
