Indian Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah will not play the 4th Test match against England in Ahemdabad due to personal reason

India played three Test matches against England their India led by 2-1 in the four-match Test Series

This series marked Bumrah’s first appearance in a Test on home soil when he featured in the series opener in Chennai, where he picked up four wickets in India’s 227-run loss.

He was then rested for the second Chennai Test and Mohamad Siraj replaced Jasprit Bumrah in 2nd Test in Chennai

In the 3rd test, he didn’t have much of a role in the game, bowling just six wicketless overs in England’s first innings in a ten-wicket Indian win scripted by their spinners.

Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj are the other two pacers India can call upon in Bumrah’s absence. Yadav was added to the squad ahead of the third Test after recovering from a calf injury he sustained on the tour of Australia.

India is currently leading the four-match Test series 2-1. They need to either win or draw the final Test to qualify for the World Test Championship finals.

India’s squad for the 4th Test:

Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (VC), KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Ishant Sharma, Md. Siraj, Umesh Yadav
