Bumrah was first ruled out of the IND vs SA 1st T2oI due to injury. He recently returned from injury against Australia. But he will now undergo extensive rehabilitation and will report to the NCA in next few weeks. He is currently in Bengaluru to undergo scans and a full medical report is awaited. Bumrah is the second star player to be ruled out of T20 World Cup after Ravindra Jadeja. The all-rounder underwent knee surgery.

“It’s concerning. But we haven’t had a full medical report on Jasprit yet. As soon as he complained of back pain, he was taken off practice. The medical team is monitoring him. Back injuries are tricky and we do not want to rush his return. The doctors will take a call on what will be his recovery period,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.
