Jasprit Bumrah Officially Ruled Out of T20 WC

The BCCI on Monday officially ruled out ace India pacer Jasprit Bumrah from the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia due to a back injury.

“The BCCI Medical team has ruled out Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup squad. The decision was taken following a detailed assessment and in consultation with the specialists,” a BCCI statement read. The board further said in the statement that it will announce a replacement “soon”.

Bumrah was recently ruled out of the ongoing T20I series against South Africa after complaining of pain during practice in the lead-up to the series.

He was taken for scans in Trivandrum and subsequently sent to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for a detailed prognosis of the issue. Bumrah had returned ahead of the T20Is against Australia after being sidelined for over two months since suffering back spasms at the end of the England tour in July. He rested and rehabilitated at the NCA in Bengaluru before returning to the side for the Australia series.
