IND vs AUS Test Series: Jasprit Bumrah Injury – In all likelihood, Jasprit Bumrah is set to miss the entire Border-Gavaskar Trophy. However, India captain Rohit Sharma is hoping for a miracle. He hopes that Bumrah is able to make a comeback in the last two tests against Australia. Bumrah is out with a lower-back stress fracture since July last year. While he was set for a comeback in the SriLanka series, he is yet to be fit. Follow India vs Australia LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

“Not too sure about Bumrah, I am hoping he plays next (last) two Tests (against Australia), we don’t want to take any risks with him as back injuries are always critical. We have a lot of cricket coming back after that also,” Rohit Sharma said at the post-match press conference after the IND vs NZ 3rd ODI.

While selectors did not pick Bumrah for the first two Tests against Australia, he recently returned to bowling at the nets at National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. However, InsideSport understands that Bumrah is still a month away from regaining 100% match fitness.

“We are in constant touch with physios and doctors in NCA. The medical team will give him as much time as he wants,” Rohit added.

To enhance the team’s chances at the T20 World Cup last October-November, Bumrah was rushed to the T20 side during a home series against Australia. However, he broke down once again and was ruled out for an indefinite period.

The four-match Test series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is also part of the World Test Championship (WTC) 2021-23. Jasprit Bumrah missing the series is a big blow for India as India must win the series 2-0 or 3-1 to qualify for the WTC Final in June. The first Test of the series begins on February 9 in Nagpur. The last two Tests are scheduled to be held across the first two weeks of March.

India squad Australia Series: Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), R. Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohd. Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Suryakumar Yadav.
