Jasprit Bumrah Replacement? As the team will not carry the reserve players, who have been asked to play in the ODI series against South Africa, India will be a man short. However, India will have their net bowlers for the camp in WACA, Perth.

The situation India currently are in is a tricky one. The ideal replacement — Mohammad Shami — is yet to clear the fitness test. The others Mohammed Siraj and Deepak Chahar have ebbed and flowed. With India leaking runs at over 13 in the death overs in the last few games, the situation is dire. Both captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid have admitted that.

“Lot of guys haven’t been to Australia. That’s why we are going there early and also play on bouncy conditions in Perth to see what we do out there. Only 7-8 are of squad have gone to Australia before. We have organised couple of practice games in Western Australia plus there are two ICC practice games,” Rohit Sharma said.

Injuries to the key players is not only the thing bothering team India. Indian team’s India death bowling woes are piling up with every passing day.

On Tuesday, India conceded 73 runs in the last five overs further highlighting their problems at the back end of the innings.

  • But with no game time for Shami due to his Covid diagnosis, Deepak Chahar is the current front-runner.

  • Siraj and Chahar will fight it out in case, Shami cannot make it.
  • As for Shami, he is at the NCA in the next 48 hours and will undergo extensive tests.

“We’ll have a look. We’ve time till October 15. Shami is obviously someone who’s in the standbys. Unfortunately for us, he couldn’t play in this series. It would’ve been ideal from that perspective, but he’s in the NCA at the moment. We’ve to get reports as to how he’s recovering, and what’s his status after 14-15 days of covid, and we’ll take a call. Once I get a report on how he’s feeling, then obviously we can really take a call on how to move forward on it,” Rahul Dravid said on Shami.

As for India’s itinerary in Australia, Rohit Sharma & Co will begin their practice on Saturday at WACA, Perth. India will also play a practice match against Western Australia on October 12. They will then shift their base to Gabba, Brisbane. The reserve players will join them after ODI series ends on October 11.
