Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been included in India's squad for its three one-day internationals against Sri Lanka after recovering from a back injury, the country's cricket board said on Tuesday.
Bumrah, 29, has been out of action since September and missed the Twenty20 World Cup, where India lost to England in the semi-finals.
"The pacer has undergone rehabilitation and has been declared fit by the National Cricket Academy (NCA). He will be joining the Team India ODI squad soon," the BCCI said in a statement.
Bumrah, called the Yorker King for his ability to bowl the toe-crushing delivery, will join India's pace attack alongside Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh.
India begins its Sri Lanka series at home on Tuesday with the first of three T20 internationals while the ODI matches will follow from January 10.
