Gutted that I won’t be part of T20 World Cup: Bumrah

 

Jasprit Bumrah is gutted that he will have to miss the T20 World Cup due to a back injury but the star India pacer will cheer for his team as he goes through his rehabilitation process.

“I am gutted that I won’t be a part of the T20 World Cup this time, but thankful for the wishes, care and support I’ve received from my loved ones. As I recover, I’ll be cheering on the team through their campaign in Australia,” Bumrah tweeted on Tuesday.

The BCCI on Monday ruled Bumrah out of the ICC event, dealing a massive setback to the Indian team.

Bumrah’s absence will certainly affect India’s chances in the marquee event in Australia as death bowling still remains a grey area.

The BCCI was awaiting medical reports while the pacer did his rehab at the National Cricket Academy but it was a foregone conclusion that he would be out for months.

He was initially ruled out of the ongoing three-match T20I series against South Africa due to a back injury.

Bumrah has a history of back problems due to his slinging unorthodox front-on action which puts a lot of load on his back.

The BCCI is yet to name Bumrah’s replacement.

Pacer Mohammed Shami, who is on stand-by list, could replace him if he gains full fitness after recovering from COVID-19.

In case, Shami does not achieve the desired fitness standards, Deepak Chahar or Mohammed Siraj could be named in the World Cup squad.
