New Delhi. The 3 ODI series between India and Sri Lanka is going to start from 10 January. Even before that bad news has come for Team India. Jasprit Bumrah’s return to the field postponed. He will not take part in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. Cricbuzz has quoted BCCI sources as saying that there will be no haste in Bumrah’s return to the field. Bumrah has not reached Guwahati for the first ODI against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
Bumrah is out of Team India since September 2022
Let us tell you that 6 days ago, the Senior Selection Committee had decided to add Jasprit Bumrah to the previously selected Indian cricket team for the 3 ODI series against Sri Lanka. Then in the statement issued regarding Jasprit Bumrah. BCCI had informed that Bumrah is out of Team India since September 2022. Due to back injury, he did not even appear in last year’s T20 World Cup in Australia. After this he completed his rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy and declared fit. After this, it decided to add him to Team India’s squad against Sri Lanka.
Now it is beyond understanding that when Jasprit Bumrah was fully fit, then why it was decided to drop him from the ODI series against Sri Lanka or he was not fit at all and the BCCI hastily decided to field him. However, no one knows what is the reality.
It has been decided not to field Jasprit Bumrah in the ODI series
According to the information, BCCI has decided not to field Jasprit Bumrah in the ODI series after the recommendation of NCA staff. India has to play 4 Test series against Australia in February-March. This series is important from the point of view of India. Because India’s win-loss in this series will open or close its way to reach the final of the World Test Championship. At the same time, ODI World Cup is also to be held in India in October-November. However, no formal statement has come from the BCCI on this.
