Jasprit Bumrah is expected to miss the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia because of a back stress fracture, which could be a major blow to India’s hopes of competing well there.
Bumrah was a member of the 15-man team that the BCCI had selected for the world cup earlier in September, and he was expected to lead Team India’s pace attack.
Jasprit Bumrah ruled out of T20 World Cup
Jasprit Bumrah, arguably the best pacer in the world, is reportedly going to miss the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022 due to a back stress fracture. Bumrah has experienced a number of injuries recently despite being expected to lead India’s effort at the T20 World Cup in 2022. However, the news that he suffered a serious injury has now caused a social media meltdown among Indian cricket fans.
Bumrah previously missed the Asia Cup 2022, a competition in which India failed to advance past the semifinals. Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Arshdeep Singh all conceded a lot of runs in the competition as India was eliminated in the Super 4 round. In addition, Bumrah didn’t join the team right away for the T20I series against Australia. Before making a comeback in the second T20I, the pacer missed the first T20I.
He participated in the final two games against Australia but was once again unable to play in the opening T20I against South Africa. According to reports, Bumrah was not fully fit and had to miss the match in Trivandrum. But on Thursday, news that Bumrah had been ruled out from the T20 World Cup was a massive disappointment for the Indian fans.

Mohammed Shami, who recently tested negative for Covid-19, is anticipated to replace Bumrah in the T20 World Cup 2022 squad. Shami was selected for the tournament despite not having played a T20I since the T20 World Cup 2022’s previous iteration. The right-arm seamer will spearhead India’s pace bowling attack and has the experience to step up in high-pressure situations.
