Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah ruled out from the T20 World cup for a back injury, and India’s T20 World Cup campaign has suffered a significant setback.

Is Jasprit Bumrah ruled out from the T20 World cup?

Yes, He has been ruled out from the world cup. The first rumors of the fast bowler’s ailment surfaced just before the September 28 start of India’s T20I series against South Africa. Bumrah was transported from the first match’s location in Thiruvananthapuram to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru so that the BCCI’s medical experts could evaluate him.

Now, “after a thorough evaluation and consultation with the specialists,” the board announced Monday that Bumrah would not participate in the World Cup. Although the BCCI did not clarify the nature of Bumrah’s back issue.


Bumrah had earlier missed the Asia Cup in August and September due to a stress reaction in his back. Still, after four weeks of rehabilitation, he was selected for the next home T20I series against Australia and South Africa. On September 23 and 25, he participated in the second and third T20 Internationals against Australia.

Bumrah complained of suffering back pain during a practice session on Tuesday, and the BCCI tweeted following the toss of the first Twenty20 international against South Africa. “BCCI Medical Team evaluated him. He gets ruled out of the first T20I between India and South Africa.”

The stress reaction that caused Bumrah to miss the Asia Cup was on the left side of his lower back. However, his most recent ailment is on the right side, indicating that it is not repeated. This is Bumrah’s second stress-related injury in the past three years. In September 2019, the fast bowler was diagnosed with a “minor stress fracture in his lower back” and was out for approximately three months.

India has two fast bowlers in reserve for the T20 World Cup: Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar. One of them is expected to replace Bumrah in the main team, while Mohammed Siraj is also possible. Teams already qualified for the Super 12 phase of the tournament, such as India, may make team changes until October 15 without ICC approval.

After all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out with a knee injury, Bumrah is the second important player India would miss at the event.

India is also awaiting the health of all-rounder Deepak Hooda, who is a member of their 15-man World Cup squad. Hooda is presently receiving treatment at the NCA for a back ailment he sustained during the T20I series against Australia last month. The BCCI has not disclosed anything regarding Hooda’s injuries or recovery.

Group 2 of the T20 World Cup consists of India, Pakistan, South Africa, Bangladesh, and two qualifying round advancing teams. The team captained by Rohit Sharma hopes to make a successful recovery at this year’s event in Australia after failing to get past the group stage at the 2021 T20 World Cup in the UAE.

The team is scheduled to go to Perth on October 6 for a one-week fitness camp, including a scrimmage against Western Australia. They will next play New Zealand and Australia in two warm-up matches before their World Cup starts on October 23 against Pakistan in Melbourne.
