Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the mega event – the T20 World Cup due to his injured back, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced via an official statement on Monday. Bumrah’s injury came as a huge blow to India after all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out as well before the team for the T20 World Cup was announced. The board further added in the statement that it will announce a replacement ‘soon’ as well.

“The BCCI Medical team has ruled out Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup squad. The decision was taken following a detailed assessment and in consultation with the specialists. Bumrah, was initially ruled out from the ongoing Mastercard 3-match T20I series against South Africa due to a back injury,” read the statement.

Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of India’s ongoing series against South Africa after having back pain on the morning of the first T20I. This was followed by reports coming that the 28-year-old was out of the T20 World Cup altogether. However, India head coach Rahul Dravid and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly both refused to rule him out earlier as well.
