Jasprit Bumrah will be able to play in T20 World Cup or not? Right now this is the same question being asked in Indian cricket. News agency PTI claimed in a report on Thursday 29 September that Bumrah would not be able to play in the T20 World Cup due to a stress fracture in his back. The Board of Control for Cricket in India, however, has not said anything on this yet and Board President Sourav Ganguly is expressing hope of recovery. Team India coach Rahul Dravid has also given his reaction now.

The first match of the T20 series was played between India and South Africa in Thiruvananthapur on 28 September. Bumrah could not be a part of the team in this match. Captain Rohit Sharma had told that he had mild back pain, after which the BCCI gave an update and said that Bumrah had complained of back pain, after which he was ruled out of the match.

Will know what will happen in the future

However, on Friday 30 September, the board again issued an update and said that he has been ruled out of the T20 series against South Africa. In such a situation, the market of speculation is hot and the BCCI itself is currently waiting before taking any decision. On Saturday, ahead of the second T20 match in Guwahati, captain Rahul Dravid addressed the press conference and responded to this question there.

Dravid said, I did not look deeply at the medical reports. For all this I depend on experts. They have dropped him (Bumrah) only for this series and he is currently being investigated. We will know at the right time what will happen in the future.

we hope to be fine

The Indian coach also expressed hope that neither he nor the team would continue to hope for his recovery. “Of course, until he’s out completely, until I’m officially told he’s out, we’ll always have hope,” he said. We will always hope for Bumrah’s good as a team and as a player.

waiting for the next step

Coach Dravid said about Bumrah’s condition that he is currently in the NCA. The former veteran captain said, he has gone to the NCA and we are waiting for official information regarding the next step. So he has just been out of this series for the time being, but what happens next, we are watching and only when we have an official confirmation, we will be able to tell you something.

Mohammad Siraj has been included in the team for the T20 series in place of Bumrah. The question is also that if Bumrah is out of the series, then who will come in his place in the team. Will any of Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar selected in the stand-by be chosen or will the selection committee and team management play a new bet.
