Jasprit Bumrah official has not ruled out from the T-20 World Cup starting later this months.Even though precise details on the severity of the fast bowler’s back ailment have not yet been provided with the team management.
Dravid has not ruled out the chance that Jasprit Bumrah may play in the T20 WC when it begins later this month.
Bumrah out of South Africa Series
Before the series-opening T20I match against South Africa, the 28-year-old quick complained of back pain. After scans in Trivandrum, he was told he would not be able to play in the series and was sent to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for further evaluation.
This would provide Dravid and the rest of the think tank with more information about Bumrah’s participation in the major event in Australia. The India head coach decided to follow his former teammate and the BCCI’s lead until a final decision was made.
Dravid told about medical report
Dravid said that he hadn’t read all of the medical papers carefully. “I rely on the professionals to identify it for me. He is currently being evaluated after being disqualified for this series.
What transpires in the future will be known in due course. Of course, we’ll always remain hopeful until he’s absolutely ruled out, until I have formal confirmation that he’s ruled out.
For both Jasprit as a person and for us as a squad, we will always wish for the best. We’ll constantly wish for the best.
Officially out for South Africa Series
“He has currently been declared officially ineligible for these two games of this T20 series against South Africa. He visited the NCA, and we are awaiting formal word on what will happen next.
We’ll wait and see what transpires over the coming days, and then we’ll be able to publish that information once we receive formal confirmation.”
India’s bowling unit is severely diminished as a result of Bumrah’s injury as they attempt to win a second T20 World Cup in Australia.
Because he was a specialist in death overs and a 140 kph enforcer who can strike the deck, he checked many boxes for the bowling unit.
If he doesn’t win, Dravid and company will have to make a last-minute change to their bowling strategy.
