In a major blow to India, pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled of the test series against South Africa starting from October 2. The pacer will warm the bench due to a minor stress fracture in his lower back. Sadly, Bumrah will now have to wait a tad bit longer to make a test debut in India.
To this day, Bumrah has been in a red-hot form in tests. The pacer has played 12 tests – all away – since his debut back in 2018 and has claimed a whopping 62 wickets. His last encounter was against West Indies, where he took 13 wickets.
Injuries are part & parcel of the sport. Thank you for all your recovery wishes. My head is held high & I am aiming for a comeback that’s stronger than the setback.? pic.twitter.com/E0JG1COHrz— Jasprit Bumrah (@Jaspritbumrah93) September 25, 2019
After being ruled out of the team, Bumrah took on Twitter to express his disappointment on not being available to play a game he has invariably wanted to.
Moreover, Bumrah could also miss the home series against Bangladesh starting from November 3.
