Jasprit Bumrah spent a long time with his back injury. Experts say it is his unusual actions that take a toll on his body and he suffers frequent injuries. But he seems to have recovered from there and played important matches for India. But the injury came back to him again.

It was a low back stress fracture that sidelined him for months. But now with T20 World Cup ahead, India cannot lose him.

India Squad T20 WC: Why Jasprit Bumrah’s injury cause for concern?

  • The Indian pace spearhead has had injury problems in the past which delayed his Test debut in 2018.
  • Bumrah suffered a back injury which is a recurrence of his old injury.
  • Although this is not a stress fracture, given his injury history, it is cause for great concern.
  • Bumrah was ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 and will undergo rehabilitation at the NCA in Bengaluru.
  • However, the reason for concern is the prolonged absence from the field due to injuries in the past.
  • Bumrah spent nearly five months on the sidelines in 2019 after what the BCCI said was a minor injury.
  • In his absence, India will rely solely on Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
  • Harshal Patel also has a rib injury and is doubtful for the T20 World Cup.
  • If both are ruled out, it will severely dent India’s chances in the T20 World Cup in Australia.

With both Bumrah and Harshal Patel doubtful, the selectors may call up Mohammed Shami for the T20s. The selectors and team management informed Shami that he would not be considered for India’s T20s. Shami was not informed of the plan to withdraw Bumrah and Harshal as the selectors wanted to wait and see on their condition.

“Look, Shami is not getting any younger and that’s why we have to handle his workload as well. This is why he was informed about T20 (not selection). But if our two main pacers are injured, then we have to fall back on someone reliable in Australia. Shami understands the condition better than anyone and can be a great asset. But he will be called at a later stage.” A member of the selection committee told InsideSport.
