Premier paceman Jasprit Bumrah is set to be ruled out of the upcoming ICTCT20 World Cup due to a broken back stress, news agency PTI reported, citing BCI sources. Premier paceman Jasprit Bumrah is set to be ruled out of the tournament due to a broken back stress, news agency PTI reported, citing BCI sources, as it could be a major blow to India’s hopes of a good performance at the upcoming ICTC T20 World Cup in Australia. Signs were not significant as Bumrah missed Wednesday’s series opener against South Africa in Thiruvananthapuram, while official confirmation from the control panel of Indian cricket awaited.
The BCI reported Bumrah’s injury minutes before the throw at Greenfield Stadium. The BCI tweeted: “Jasprit Bumrah complained of back pain during Tuesday’s India practice session. The BCI medical team evaluated him. He was excluded from the first T20I.” 바카라사이트넷
Umra, who was absent from the Asian cup due to back problems and was training at the National Cricket Academy, played his last two T20I matches against Australia.
“Bumla certainly won’t be playing against the World T20. He has a serious back condition. It’s a stress fracture and you can go out for six months,” a senior BCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.
India has the likes of Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar on the waiting list for the T20 World Cup and one of them can now be drafted into the state squad.
Chahar showed good performance against South Africa, and his excellent batting skills allowed him to nod ahead of Shami in the spell.
Death bowling in India became an issue and captain Rohit Sharma pointed it out himself. Veteran paceman Bhubneshwar Kumar has been under the pump due to his poor performance, and the pressure on delivery will be on the shoulders of young Arshdeep Singh and Harshal Patel due to Bumrah’s absence.
Having played their second and third T20 matches against Australia, Bumrah did not travel with the team to tiruvananthapuram for the series opener against South Africa.
The 28-year-old fast bowler is the second senior star player to be ruled out after Rabindra Jadeja, who is recovering from knee surgery.
The Indian team is already in a precarious position at the moment, and Bumrah’s injury will only add to the woes of captain Rohit Sharma and manager Rahul Dravid.
“Losing Bumrah and Jadeja would be a tremendous thing for India. We didn’t expect the situation to go as it was. He took a break for the Asian Cup exactly to manage his workload. Now it remains questionable whether he is fit enough to play the Australian Series,” the senior official said.
Many senior players have had enough rest with their workload in mind.
More interesting is the fact that Bumrah has only five Tests, five ODIs and a T20I count in 2022, in addition to the IPL game for Mumbai Indians.
“Considering the Asian Cup, the tour of the West Indies and the two countries’ cricket matches in India, there are not many cricket matches. It’s a lot of rest,” the official said. “He’s in the NCA and rehabilitation is going to be a long and tough time. Yes, he is still young and is the largest bowling asset in India. You can’t risk it with him.” Back stress fractures don’t require surgery and take a lot of time to heal.
The tiger that does the ring movement puts a lot of pressure on the waist when loading. Former West Indies space bowling master Michael Holding said Bumrah has always been a candidate for a back injury.
