India Squad T20 WC – Jasprit Bumrah Injury: Team India’s worst nightmares could come true. India’s pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah could be doubtful for T20 World Cup as things stand. Bumrah has been ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 with a ‘back injury’. But it is the same serious injury that derailed his plans in 2019. It has resurfaced again. Both BCCI and selectors are worried, with just a month left to announce the squad for T20 World Cup 2022. Follow Asia Cup 2022 LIVE & T20 World Cup 2022 LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

“Yes, it’s concerning. He is back in rehab and will get the best medical advice available. The problem is it’s his old injury and that is what is concerning. We have just two months left for the World Cup and he has got this injury at the worst possible time. We are closely monitoring his condition. He is the best bowler in cricket and needs to be carefully managed,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.

Jasprit Bumrah has spent a long time on the sidelines with his nagging back injury. Experts say it’s his unusual action that takes a toll on his body and he suffers frequent injuries. But he seemed to have recovered from that and played crucial matches for India. However, the injury has come back to haunt him once again.

It was a lower back stress fracture that ruled him out for many months. But now with T20 World Cup around the corner, India cannot afford to lose him.

India Squad T20 WC: Why Jasprit Bumrah injury is causing concerns?

  • The Indian pace spearhead has had injury troubles in the past that delayed his Test debut to 2018.
  • Bumrah has suffered a back injury which is the recurrence of his old injury.
  • While it is not a stress fracture, considering his history of injuries, it is causing big concern.
  • Bumrah was ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 and will undergo rehabilitation at the NCA in Bengaluru.
  • But the cause for concern is his long time off the field due to injury in the past.
  • Bumrah spent almost five months on the sidelines in 2019 when BCCI said it was a minor injury.
  • In his absence, India will only have Bhuvneshwar Kumar to rely on.
  • Harshal Patel has also suffered a rib injury and is doubtful for T20 World Cup.
  • If both are ruled out, it will seriously dampen India’s chances at the T20 World Cup in Australia.

With both Bumrah and Harshal Patel doubtful, selectors could recall Mohammed Shami to T20s. Shami was informed by the selectors and team management that he won’t be considered for India’s T20Is. Shami hasn’t been informed about the plans to recall him as the selectors want to wait and watch on Bumrah and Harshal’s conditions.

“See, Shami isn’t getting any younger and that is why we have to manage his workload too. That is the reason he was informed about T20s (Not selecting). But if we have two premier pacers injured, we have to fall back on someone reliable in Australia. Shami understands the conditions better than anybody and could be a great asset. But a call on him will be taken only at a later stage,” a member of the selection committee told InsideSport.
