Bumrah leads India on day 3 as Rohit doesn’t take field in Dharamshala due to this reason

There's no official word yet on the extent of Rohit Sharma injury or his availability for the remaining days of the Test.

India vs England 5th Test, Day 3: India Cricket Team captain, Rohit Sharma, will miss Day 3 of the fifth and final Test against England due to a stiff back, according to a BCCI statement. Jasprit Bumrah, India’s vice-captain, will step in to lead the team in Sharma’s absence.

“Captain Rohit Sharma has not taken the field on Day 3 due to a stiff back,” BCCI in a statement announced.

Rohit Sharma absence a blow

While Rohit Sharma absence is a setback, India remains in a dominant position. They posted a mammoth 477 runs in their first innings, thanks to centuries from Sharma himself and Shubman Gill. With a significant lead already established, India will be confident of securing a series victory even without their captain at the helm.

Jasprit Bumrah steps up to lead charge

Jasprit Bumrah, a seasoned fast bowler and India’s designated vice-captain, will take over the leadership duties.

Jasprit Bumrah has displayed strong leadership qualities in the past, and his experience on the field will be invaluable for the team.

Focus on Continuing Strong Performance

The onus will be on the remaining Indian players to continue their impressive showing. The bowling attack, spearheaded by Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj, will look to build on their success in the first innings by dismissing the English batters cheaply.

Rohit Sharma return uncertain

There’s no official word yet on the extent of Rohit Sharma injury or his availability for the remaining days of the Test. The BCCI is expected to provide a further update on his condition in due course.

All eyes will be on Jasprit Bumrah as he leads India for the first time in a Test match. Can he inspire his team to continue their dominance and secure a series win?
