The World Cup is fast approaching and is only two months away as of today. Teams across the globe are busy preparing for it. With Jasprit Bumrah missing out, India will have to reconsider their plans for the event. Reports from Inside Sports have now surfaced that a source close to BCCI has spilled the beans about Bumrah's injury and it is not a very pleasing one. Jasprit Bumrah has aggravated his injury and he might miss the all-important World Cup. The time left for the World Cup to start might not be enough for Bumrah to regain his full fitness. As of now, Bumrah is one of the finest fast bowlers on the international arena and if he misses out, India will have loads of issues at their disposal.

Indian squad for Asia Cup:

Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan
