In all likelihood, Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah won’t play in the forthcoming ICC World T20 2022. India’s top pacer has already been eliminated from the current three-match series against South Africa, which is being captained by Rohit Sharma. For the rest of the South Africa series, Bumrah was replaced by pacer Mohammed Siraj on Friday.

Before the first Twenty20 International between India and South Africa, Bumrah reportedly had a back ailment, according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The veteran Indian team competitor in all competitions had previously had a back ailment that prevented him from competing in the Asia Cup in 2022. Wasim Jaffer, a former cricketer for India, believes that the Indian team hurried the veteran bowler into the starting XI for the Australia series as a result of Bumrah’s injury setback.

“The stress fracture may have previously existed, perhaps not to that level, but it very certainly became worse after he played a few games under that kind of stress. They either forced him to play those games a bit too soon or sort of rushed the gun, “According to Jaffer, ESPN Cricinfo.

After making a comeback to international cricket, Bumrah had a forgettable performance in the Australia series. Bumrah failed to pick up a wicket and allowed 50 runs to be scored in 4 overs during the series-deciding match between Australia and India. In the third T20I against Australia, Bumrah had his worst bowling stats, giving up 50 runs.

“If I could say anything, I simply had the impression that they may have hurried him into playing against Australia. He likely spent some more time getting ready for the World Cup. I don’t sure how bad the injury is, but that’s how I feel. Whether they pushed him to play too soon and then it happened again, “Added Jaffer. For India in the shortest format, Bumrah has taken the third-most wickets. The injured pacer has bagged 70 wickets in 60 matches for the 2007 world champions.
