Jasprit Bumrah, Indian team’s fast bowler will not be able to play in the T20 World Cup 2022. He returned to the field from the T20 series against Australia, but got injured once again after bowling just 6 overs. He has a severe fracture in his back and due to this he will not be able to play for India in the World Cup. The tournament will begin on October 16 and India will play their first match against Pakistan on 23.
Japrit Bumrah tweeted that “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 will be cheering on the team through their campaign in Australia.”
Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav posted supportive tweets for Boom, as he is famously called in Team India. Hardik wrote: “My Jassi Come back stronger like you always do @Jaspritbumrah93.” While Surya wrote: “You will be back stronger @Jaspritbumrah93. Wish you a speedy recovery.”
Ever since the 2016 season, Bumrah has not been out of a single IPL match due to injury. But during India’s matches, he gets injured time and again. Following this, he is repeatedly trolled on social media.
Jasprit Bumrah has given a reply to the critics by sharing the story on Instagram, the story is a message with a photo of Winston Churchill, It reads, ‘If you stop and stone every barking dog, you will never reach your destination.’
The Indian team has left for Australia to participate in the T20 World Cup. The Indian team will travel to Perth before travelling to Sydney where they are scheduled to play two warm up games against New Zealand and hosts Australia before taking on Pakistan in the all-important opener on the 23rd of October. However, Bumrah’s replacement has not been announced yet. The team has Deepak Chahar and Mohammed Shami as reserve players. Shami has not played a match for India in this format since last year’s T20 World Cup. However, given the experience and the conditions in Australia, he is considered a strong contender to replace Bumrah. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a photograph of the entire squad including all the players and head coach Rahul Dravid, on their official Twitter.
