Boom Boom Bumrah misses T20 World Cup
The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) has recently confirmed that bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the forthcoming T20 World Cup.
“The BCCI Medical team has ruled out Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup squad. The decision was taken following a detailed assessment and in consultation with the specialists,” the Indian cricket governing body said in a statement on Monday, October 3.
Moreover, Jasprit Bumrah was also not part of the recent DP Asia Cup held in UAE and is also not part of the ongoing India-South Africa T20I series due to stress fracture in the lower back.
“We have been told that his injury is not looking good at the moment, and it looks like he won’t be travelling to Australia with the Indian team. The medical team will soon submit a detailed report,” a BCCI official had confirmed to The Indian Express a few days back.
Bumrah was replaced by Mohammed Siraj in the squad for the South Africa T20I series, BCCI had said in their release statement that Bumrah’s replacement for the upcoming World Cup in Australia would be revealed soon.
Experienced Delhi man and Indian bowler Mohammed Shami is most likely to fill in Jasprit Bumrah’s shoes. Deepak Chahar can also be another apt choice for the spot.
