A report has cast doubt on India bowler Jasprit Bumrah's participation in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

India bowler Jasprit Bumrah reportedly out of T20 World Cup

The right-arm seamer has been suffering from a recurring back injury that saw him miss the Asia Cup and part of the recent home T20 series against Australia. Bumrah was expected to feature in Wednesday’s opening T20 against South Africa, but was ruled out due to injury.

“Jasprit Bumrah complained of back pain during India’s practice session on Tuesday,” the BCCI said on Twitter on Wednesday.

“The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He is ruled out of the first #INDvSA T20I.”

Now, news portal PTI has quoted a BCCI official who claimed Bumrah’s injury is more serious than the statement led on…

“Bumrah is not going to play the World T20 for sure,” said the unnamed official.

“He has a serious back condition. It’s a stress fracture and he could be out for a period of six months.”

While India has good squad depth, they have already suffered the loss of experienced campaigner Ravindra Jadeja due to a knee injury. The loss of Bumrah – who has picked up 70 T20I wickets at 20.22 – would be unfortunately another blow.
