Jasprit Bumrah would require three more weeks of rest before he starts bowling at full tilt again, effectively ruling him out of the first half of the Australia Test series, starting on February 9 besides IND vs NZ T20I and ODI series. Jasprit Bumrah is unlikely to feature in the entire New Zealand limited-overs series and at least the first couple of Test matches against Australia.

Jasprit Bumrah was withdrawn from Sri Lanka ODIs on the eve of the series opener Guwahati after the right-arm seamer felt discomfort in his back.

Avesh Khan debuted this year in T20Is but could pick 13 scalps only in 15 T20Is averaging 32.46 at a steep economy rate of 9.11. He conceded over 10 runs per over in series against West Indies, Ireland, and England before having a pathetic Asia Cup 2022, where he conceded over 12 runs per over even against minnows Hong Kong, having figures of 1/53 in 4 overs.

He wasn’t considered for a place in the Indian squad after the Asia Cup 2022 but can be given another chance in place of Jasprit Bumrah in the IND vs NZ T20I squad against New Zealand.
