Indian Cricket team who is currently facing drawbacks after key players suffered injuries dealt another blow on Tuesday as pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the fourth test match against Australia after suffering an abdominal strain.
Bumrah who is the key component of India’s bowling attack sustained the strain during the drawn third test match in Sydney. It has been learnt that Bumrah’s scan reports showed a strain & the Indian team management does not want him to aggravate the injury, as India is also slated to play four match test series against England.
“Jasprit Bumrah suffered an abdominal strain while fielding in Sydney. He is going to sit out of the Brisbane Test but is expected to be available against England,” a BCCI source told PTI.
It is now predicted that the two test old Mohammed Siraj will be leading the Indian bowling attack & will be joined by Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur and T Natarajan in the Brisbane Test, starting January 15.
