T20 World Cup: Before the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia, relief news has come to the fore for Team India. Team India’s number one fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is not out of the T20 World Cup yet. Board of Control for Cricket in India President Sourav Ganguly has said that there is still time left for the start of the World Cup, so Bumrah can be expected to play.
Sourav Ganguly while talking to a news website said that Jasprit Bumrah has not been out of the World Cup and it is too early to say anything about it. The BCCI President said, “Jasprit Bumrah is not out of the T20 World Cup. It is time for the start of the World Cup. We should wait and not say anything in haste.
Earlier, there were reports that Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup due to back pain problem. Actually, Jasprit Bumrah could not even be a part of the Asia Cup due to the problem of back pain. But Jasprit Bumrah was selected in the team for the T20 series against Australia.
The picture is not clear about Bumrah’s play
However, even during the series against Australia, questions were raised on Bumrah’s fitness. Bumrah could not play in the first T20 match of this series. After this Bumrah took part in two matches of the series. But Bumrah was ruled out of the first T20 match against South Africa. The BCCI had issued an update saying that Bumrah has been ruled out of the series against South Africa due to back pain.
The situation is not yet clear on Bumrah’s playing in the T20 World Cup. It is still not known whether Bumrah will be able to play against Pakistan even if he leaves for Australia with Team India. In the event of Bumrah not playing, Mohammed Shami or Mohammad Siraj can be included in Team India.
