Jasprit Bumrah’s injury seems to be not that threatening. BCCI is trying its best to make the speedster ready for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The right-arm pacer got ruled out of the ongoing T20I Series against South Africa. It was a huge blow to India as Bumrah hasn’t played that much cricket after making a comeback from the injury.
Bumrah played 2 T20Is against Australia where his form was not that promising as in the 3rd T20I he had got the beating. India has named Mohammed Siraj as their replacement who can be quite lethal as he has got good control and pace. India would be hoping that there are no injury setbacks in the team as already Jadeja is not with the team due to an injury.
Rahul Dravid on Jasprit Bumrah
Rahul Dravid was seen in a press conference on Saturday (01st October) ahead of the 2nd T20I match (02nd October) against South Africa and was asked about Jasprit Bumrah. “So, as of now, officially he has been ruled out of the T20 series against South Africa. He has gone to the NCA and we are waiting for an official confirmation on the next steps. As of now, officially he is only ruled out of this series, and we will see what happens in the next 2-3 days but once we get an official confirmation, then we will be able to share that.” Dravid said.
“Like I said, I don’t go deeply into the medical reports, I rely on the experts to tell me what it is. They ruled him out of this series and he is being assessed. You will know in due course what happens in the future. Till the time he is not officially ruled out, we will always be hopeful and we will hope for the best.” he added.
Jasprit Bumrah Invaluable
The right-arm speedster is not only famous for Yorkers as he has got a lot of variety in his amour. The pacer knows how to fox the batters by bowling a surprise short ball and bowling off cutters and a lot of other deliveries. His 4 overs can decide the fate of the match as batters don’t usually try to attack him.
If Bumrah travels with the team for ICC T20 World Cup 2022 then it would be a huge boost. The bowler can help the likes of Arshdeep Singh & Harshal Patel as winning championships requires teamwork. We all have seen how destructive Bumrah can be and on Australian pitches, he would be a force to reckon with.
