According to BCCI sources quoted by the PTI news agency, Bumrah has a stress fracture in his back and will miss the World Cup.
The board is yet to confirm Jasprit Bumrah’s removal, but they have stated that he is being watched and will not feature in India’s squad for the current series against South Africa.
Jasprit Bumrah injury massive blow for India: Saba Karim
Jasprit Bumrah’s absence will be a “tremendous blow” to the team, according to former India coach Saba Karim, but the fact that the likes of Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar are on the World Cup waiting list shows that the captain , Rohit Sharma, and management have been preparing for the possibility that they may be without their star pacemaker.
“Yes, he is a unique bowler. In the T20 format, you need someone who can bowl the new ball and pick wickets and then can come back to finish their spell in the death overs.
He is extremely effective and, in addition to his knowledge of the matches, he is now part of the leadership group of the national team. So yeah, I think without him this will be a huge blow to India.” Saba Karim told Sports18.
“But you know one can feel that the Indian team management and the Indian captain were preparing for this. That is why they thought of bringing Mohammed Shami and they also have Deepak Chahar on standby.” added the former coach.
“So I think it’s good that India has played all these bilateral engagements without Jasprit Bumrah in the lineup.” he said.
Saba Karim selects Mohammed Shamis as Jasprit Bumrah’s replacement
He also supported Mohammed Shami as Bumrah’s replacement.
“I will go ahead with Mohammed Shami because he will find the form even if he hasn’t played, but he is that type of bowler who, once given the chance, can always step up and do the job for India.” he said.
“Also with this kind of experience you need someone at the top who can pick your wickets and you have seen Mohammed Shami in the last Indian T20 league, he is a bowler who can pick wickets with the new ball in the game. of power. and India needs that.
So if Mohammed Shami can take early wickets with the new ball, that’s the kind of start India would need as they defend the goal or as they try to prevent the opposition from setting up a big goal.” he said.
In Bumrah’s absence, he said, the other Indian bowlers in the team must step up, particularly in the later overs.
