Jasprit Bumrah is one of the most highly-rated fast bowlers in the world, given his incredible capability and potential. However, he has been out of competitive action for quite a long time now.
The premier paceman had to miss the Asia Cup 2022 and the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 due to an injury. He was expected to be back in action for the home series against New Zealand recently.
However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) didn’t want to risk playing the paceman now, given that the ICC WTC Final and the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 are scheduled to be held this year.
While the ICC WTC Final is slated to be held from June 7 to 11 at the Kennington Oval, with June 12 set as the reserve day. On the other hand, the ICC ODI World Cup is slated to be held in the October-November window.
Jasprit Bumrah’s injury status is kept secret: Reports
According to a report by The Indian Express, Jasprit Bumrah’s injury status is kept secret and it is so confidential that not many in the BCCI are even aware of it in the first place.
There is no exact information about the pacer’s injury status and it remains to be seen what the future holds in store for the right-arm paceman. Meanwhile, it has also been reported that only VVS Laxman can speak to Jasprit Bumrah and the physios.
It has been learnt that even the selection committee has been notified that they will be informed about Jasprit Bumrah’s injury details later. The right-arm paceman has taken 128 wickets in the longest format of the game. On the other hand, he has taken as many as 121 wickets in One-Day Internationals.
Besides that, he has accounted for 70 wickets in Twenty20 Internationals. Notably, he has taken 8 fifers in Tests and 2 fifers in ODIs.
