Jasprit Bumrah ruled out of T20I, ODI series against England due to injury

Reports suggest that either Shardul Thakur or Deepak Chahar would be a suitable replacement for Bumrah as India face England in three T20Is and three ODIs before the ultimate Test series.

Team India seamer Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the three-match T20I and ODI series against England after suffering an injury during the 1st T20I against Ireland. It is learnt that he suffered a broken finger after he attempted to take a catch on his delivery in the 20th over.

Bumrah, a key death overs bowler, did not take part in the optional nets on Thursday and was benched for the second match on Friday. India had won the series 2-0 with ease.

But ahead of a sterner test against England, it's a major blow for India.

Bumrah is ranked 10th on ICC's T20I Bowlers' ranking lost and along with leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is among the only two bowlers in the top-ten of T20I rankings.

He, though, is expected to be fit in time for the three-match ODI series that begins in Nottingham on July 12.

Sundar has been ruled out of the T20 series owing to a right ankle injury. He sustained this injury whilst playing football during India's first practice session in Malahide on Tuesday.

Replacements will be named by the BCCI in due course, with Shardul Thakur and Deepak Thakur's names being talked up.

Meanwhile, England too have made an addition to their T20I squad, but only for the first game in Manchester.

Batsman Dawid Malan has been called in as cover for pacer Tom Curran who has a side strain, but the latter is expected to be fit for the last two games of the series.
