Ranchi, Oct 6 - On the eve of Indias first T20 International against Australia, India's pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah welcomed the return of veteran Ashish Nehra to the squad, saying the left-arm pacer brings with him a bag full of experience.

Addressing reporters ahead of the tie, Bumrah recollected his playing days with Nehra.

"He's a very experienced player. I've played some cricket with him. I've played in World Twenty20 with him. It's really good to have him in the side," the 23-year-old said.

"It's lot of fun. He has loads of experience to share. He's very helpful for youngsters like me. The team's atmosphere becomes good when he comes to the side. It feels great to have him back in the side."

On having established himself as India's premium fast bowler in the limited-overs formats in a short time, Bumrah said: "When you are playing for India, you don't need any kind of (extra) drive because you are very happy."
