The pacer has been nursing a back injury of late and will be eyeing for a return next month.
However, Bumrah will not be undergoing any fitness test at the NCA.
Bumrah isn't keen on going to the NCA
According to The Times of India, Bumrah had conveyed his message to the team management of not being keen on going to the NCA.
The Rahul Dravid-led NCA is also reportedly unsure of conducting the fitness test.
This is because Bumrah was consulting his own set of specialists in India and the UK on the way to recovery and wasn't at the centre.
NCA hesitant to conduct the test and certify Bumrah's fitness
Meanwhile, since the specialist team at the NCA is unaware of the injury, they do not want to conduct the test and certify his fitness. The plan was to ask Team India trainer Nick Webb to conduct the test for Bumrah but Dravid has reportedly cancelled that.
Moreover, earlier it was reported that Bumrah was hesitant to undergo his rehab at the NCA.
Bumrah expected to tour New Zealand
It remains to be seen whether Bumrah returns to the national team against Australia for the ODIs next month. He is expected to make it to the tour of New Zealand. However, he will need to pass the fitness test.
NCA has been under the scanner of late

NCA jumbled things up for Bhuvneshwar
According to a report in The Times of India, Bhuvneshwar was made to go through three different scans at a private hospital in Bengaluru, while recovering at the NCA.
Bhuvi, who was in severe pain, was declared fit for play.
The right-arm pacer featured in all the three games and wasn't at his best.
