Confusion prevails in the Indian cricket team. Jasprit Bumrah, who got a ‘special’ entry in Team India for the ODI series against Sri Lanka six days ago, is now out of this series as well. According to news agency PTI, the BCCI has decided not to bring Bumrah back to action so soon and rest him from the series on the basis of fitness. At the same time, six days ago i.e. on January 3, the BCCI had informed about Bumrah’s inclusion in the squad. However, the BCCI has not yet made any official confirmation in this matter.

Bumrah was out of Team India since September 2022 due to a back injury. He was also not a part of Team India in the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. After recovering from injury, he has been training at the National Cricket Academy for a long time. Recently, Bumrah was declared fully fit by the NCA.

On January 3, he was included in Team India for the ODI series against Sri Lanka. The fans were very happy about Bumrah joining the Indian team ahead of the crucial Test series against Australia. However, now again the fans are in for a shock. Bumrah hasn’t even reached Guwahati. In Guwahati itself, the Indian team will play the first ODI against Sri Lanka. Jasprit Bumrah, 29, played the last match for India on 25 September. He was part of the Indian team in the T20 series against Australia. At the same time, he played his last ODI against England on 14 July. During the T20 World Cup 2022, India missed Bumrah and the Indian bowlers could not take any wickets against England in the semi-finals. It is believed that the team management has taken this decision on the advice of NCA. Keeping in mind the ODI World Cup, BCCI does not want to take any risk. This is the reason why it was decided to keep Jasprit Bumrah out of the series at the last moment so that he could get full time to make a comeback.

According to media reports, Bumrah can be included in the team for the series against New Zealand. India and New Zealand teams will play ODI and T20 series of three matches each. It will start from 18 January. Apart from Bumrah, other members of the Indian team, including captain Rohit Sharma, vice-captain KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer, who were not part of the squad for the T20I series, have joined the team in Guwahati.
