India pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah is facing the heat on social media for returning to India from Sri Lanka ahead of a crucial game in Asia Cup 2023. The fast-bowler, on Sunday (September 3), returned to Mumbai to be with his wife Sanjana Ganesan for the birth of their first child.

And on Monday (September 4), the couple was blessed with its first child. Jasprit Bumrah took to social media to announce the news to his fans and followers. The India star revealed that he and his wife have been blessed with a baby boy and also revealed that they have named him Angad.

But while the pacer returned home to be with his wife for one of the best moments of his life, a number of fans were not at all impressed with it. The reason was that the pacer would not miss the crucial game against Nepal in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023.

Fans slam Jasprit Bumrah:

India will lock horns against Nepal in the do-or-die match on Monday (September 4) in Pallekele. The Men in Blue need to avoid a defeat at any cost against the minnows to progress to the Super 4. India’s first game of the tournament which was against Pakistan was washed out. As a result, India and Pakistan shared one point each.

The Men in Blue now need at least one point to make it to the next round. Even if the game is washed out, the Rohit Sharma-led side will join Pakistan in the Super 4. However, an unexpected defeat could see India crash out of the Asia Cup in a humiliating manner.

And while India are still the favourites to beat Nepal even in Jasprit Bumrah’s absence, the fans were not at all happy with the pacer’s decision to leave for home before such a big game. While a number of fans praised Jasprit Bumrah for being with his wife at such a crucial time, few others slammed him and questioned his commitment to the national team.
