On the tour of Australia, the Indian team has added a name to the list of very injured players. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the Brisbane Test against Australia. Bumrah is an important part of the Indian fast bowling attack. Bumrah had a hamstring injury during the third Test in Sydney.
It is reported that Bumrah’s scan report shows strain and the Indian team management does not want to take any risk by feeding them. Given the fact that India have to play a four-Test home series against England, the team management does not want to take the risk of Bumrah’s injury increasing.
A BCCI source told news agency PTI, “Jasprit Bumrah had an abdominal strain while fielding in Sydney. He will not play in the Brisbane Test. However, he can be available for the series against England.
It is expected that Mohammad Siraj, who played two Test matches, will lead the Indian fast bowling attack. Along with this, Navdeep Saini will also be part of the team. Shardul Thakur and T. Natarajan can also find a place in the playing eleven for the Test match starting on January 15.
It is to be noted that on the tour of Australia many players of the Indian team have been ruled out due to injury. Apart from fast bowlers Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav, batsman KL Rahul has also been out of the series already. At the same time, Ravindra Jadeja will not play in Brisbane Test after injury in Sydney Test.
