In Bumrah’s Absence, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik To Travel With Indian Teams Indian team management hope for a miraculous recovery of their premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah, they are already closing in on two names as far as picking his replacement for the T20 World Cup 2022. According to a media report, India will pick two pacers as his back up with one traveling as a net bowler. Earlier on Thursday, Bumrah was said to be ruled out of the T20 World Cup 2022 entirely due to a back-stress fracture. However, the BCCI has now confirmed that the 28-year-old is still in the plans and the Board will take a last-minute call on Bumrah’s departure alongside the Indian team on October 6.
Earlier it was reported that Bumrah has been ruled out and may not make it to Australia. His injury comes on the back of Ravindra Jadeja getting ruled out after he injured his knee while doing water-based training in Team India’s hotel in Dubai while the Asia Cup 2022 was on.
