Highlights

  • Bumrah's absence will come as big blow to Team India
  • Mohammed Shami or Deepak Chahar are likely to come in as replacement
  • The likes of Mohammed Siraj and Umesh Yadav could also get a wildcard entry into Team India

India's ace pacer Jasprit Burmah has been officially ruled out of the upcoming T20 World Cup after a back injury. The extent of the injury is still unknown, but this comes as a big blow for Rohit Sharma's side. While there is no official word on his replacement, Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar are his likely to be roped in.

The 28-year-old who returned to the Indian team for the T20 World Cup and the home series against South Africa and Australia will now likely miss the showpiece Down Under in Australia. The veteran star pulled out of the Indian team for the first T20I against South Africa on Monday due to a back injury.

This now means that either Deepak Chahar or Mohammed Shami will be roped in as a replacement for the injured star. While the likes of Umran Malik and Umesh Yadav could also be considered. Shami at the moment looks to be the like-to-like replacement but even has struggled of late due to Covid-19.

Big void to fill

Bumrah has scalped 70 wickets for India and is only behind Yuzvedndra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for most wickets for India in the T20I format. His absence will leave a big hole to fill in as team India will now face an uphill task to replace the Mumbai Indian's star.

Bumrah's absence in South Africa series will leave team India in a vulnerable situation as they are already without Bhuvneshwar Kumar (rested) and Mohammed Shami. The latter was ruled out on Monday after he failed to recover from Covid-19. 

 
Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, and Umesh Yadav are the only pace bowlers at India's disposal while Deepak Chahar comes in as a bowling all-rounder. The BCCI's decision will now come under huge scrutiny for selecting an unfit Bumrah for the T20 World Cup ahead of Shami, Umesh Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj.
