ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is all set to start on October 16 in Australia. The qualifying round will start on Oct. 16, where eight teams will play 12 matches. Among these eight teams, four teams will qualify to reach the Super 12. In recent development some report says that Jasprit Bumrah ruled out from ICC T20 world cup.
Big blow to team India for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia, premier paceman Jasprit Bumrah is set to be ruled out of the tournament with a back stress fracture as per media report. While an official confirmation from the Board of Control from Cricket in India is awaited, the signs have not been great as Bumrah pulled out of India’s series opener against South Africa in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.
Jasprit Bumrah had earlier missed the entire Asia Cup 2022 due to a back injury. He spent around a month at National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru to recover, post which he was selected for the T20Is vs Australia. He missed the first T20I at Mohali but played the remaining 2 matches.
He looked quite ordinary in those 2 games he was part of, and it seemed all was not right with his fitness as he was not bowling to the best of his abilities. He bowled 2 overs for 23 runs for just 1 wicket in 2nd T20I vs Australia while have away 50 runs from his 4 overs in the 3rd and last T20I at Hyderabad.
BCCI is yet to give an update on Bumrah’s fitness. In a tweet yesterday before the IND vs SA 1st T20I, BCCI had tweeted that Bumrah would miss the 1st T20I. “Jasprit Bumrah complained of back pain during India’s practice session on Tuesday.
The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He is ruled out of the first #INDvSA T20I,” the board had tweeted out. However, as per a report in The Indian Express, NCA are yet to decide whether Bumrah requires a surgery or not.
