Sad I won’t be part of the T20 World Cup: Jasprit Bumrah | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Jasper Bumrah is gutted that he will have to miss the T20 World Cup due to a back injury, but the Indian star player will be cheering on his team as he goes through his rehabilitation process.
“I’m gutted that I won’t be part of the World Cup T20 this time, but grateful for the wishes, care and support I have received from my loved ones. While I recover, I will be cheering the team on during their campaign in Australia.” Bumrah tweeted Tuesday.

The BCCI banned Bumrah from the ICC event on Monday, marking a huge setback for the Indian team.
The absence of Bumrah will certainly affect India’s chances in the big event in Australia as death bowling still remains a gray area.

The BCCI waited for medical reports while the pacer did its rehabilitation in the… National Cricket Academy but it was a foregone conclusion that he would be out of action for months.
He was initially ruled out of the ongoing three-game T20I series against South Africa due to a back injury.
Bumrah has a history of back problems due to his swinging unorthodox front-on action that puts a lot on his back.
The BCCI has yet to appoint Bumrah’s replacement.
Pacer Mohammed Shamiwho is on the standby list could replace him when he becomes fully fit after recovering from COVID-19.
In case Shami does not achieve desired fitness standards, Deepak Chahar or Mohammed Siraj can be named in the World Cup squad.
The team leaves for Australia on Thursday.
The World Cup kicks off on October 16 with the first round from which four teams qualify for Super 12, which kicks off October 22.
