On Monday, Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was officially confirmed out of the T20 World Cup. There was speculation for a long time but now the BCCI has also made it clear that the veteran fast bowler will not play in the upcoming ICC tournament. Bumrah has a back injury and that is why he has been out. After being ruled out of the World Cup, the fast bowler took to Twitter to express his pain and also thanked his well-wishers for their well wishes.
Jasprit Bumrah suffered a back injury before the Asia Cup and was ruled out of the tournament. His absence was greatly missed and the Indian team could not even reach the final of the Asia Cup. After this, the fast bowler got fit and made a comeback in the T20 series against Australia and played the last two matches. He was also scheduled to play the T20 series against South Africa but felt pain in his back during practice before the start of the series and was ruled out of the series. Since then there were speculations that Bumrah might not be able to take part in the World Cup and that is what happened in the end.
With Jasprit Bumrah out of the way, India will have to announce a replacement in their squad. For this the names of Mohammed Shami, Mohammad Siraj and Deepak Chahar are being discussed but there is a strong possibility of Shami being selected. He is also one of the reserve players. In such a situation, it has to be seen who the BCCI chooses as a replacement.
