New Delhi: In the latest development ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, BCCI revealed on Twitter that Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the team. Notably, the primary reason behind Bumrah’s exclusion is his back injury. The match is scheduled to start on October 16.

Earlier on October 1, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly had said that he is not ready to give up on injured star pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

However, the medical team of the BCCI Medical ruled out Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup squad.

The decision came after a detailed assessment and in consultation with the specialists. Bumrah was initially ruled out from the ongoing three-match T20I series against South Africa due to a back injury. During the tournament, Mohammed Siraj was named as the replacement for injured Bumrah for the remainder of the T20I series against South Africa.

However, the BCCI has so far not announced who will replace Bumrah in the team.
