Jasprit Bumrah expected to be ruled out of the T20 World Cup
After complaining of back pain, Jasprit Bumrah has been declared doubtful for the T20 World Cup.
He did not play in the first T20 match against South Africa and instead flew to Bengaluru to be monitored.
Melbourne will host the World Cup from October 16 to November 13. India’s first match is against Pakistan on October 23 at the MCG.
Due to a stress fracture in his back, India all-rounder Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the T20 series against Australia and South Africa.
He hasn’t played a T20I for India since their World Cup match against Afghanistan last year.
The 27-year-old took 20 wickets in IPL 2022, the most for Gujarat Titans, who won the tournament.
