Against South Africa, Bumrah sat out the opening T20. To have my back issue evaluated, he travelled to Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy on Thursday.

Although Bumrah also missed the Asia Cup in the UAE previous month due to a back ailment, it is unclear at this time if he will have surgery.

He was cleared to participate in this month’s three T20 series versus Australia at home and participated in the second and third T20s in Nagpur and Hyderabad.

Indian end-of-game bowling in T20 matches has lately been criticized. Bumrah was anticipated to be the team’s leader at the World Cup, which will be held from October 16 to November 13.

Bumrah has eight wickets at an economy rate of 8.08 and an average of 22.75 in the six T20 international matches he has played in Australia. In January 2016, he made his Twenty20 debut in Australia.

Bumrah was not permitted to play in Wednesday’s opening T20 match between India and South Africa, according to the BCCI. During India’s Tuesday practise session, Jasprit Bumrah expressed back soreness. The BCCI Medical Team evaluated him, according to the statement.

Mohammad Shami or Deepak Chahar, who were added as stand-by players for the T20 World Cup, would have to be chosen by the selection committee if Bumrah were to be fully ruled out of the competition.

While both Shami and Chahar excel in the Powerplay, they aren’t recognised for their bowling in the latter innings.

Because of Covid, Shami had to miss the series against Australia and South Africa. He hasn’t played in a T20I for India since their World Cup encounter versus Afghanistan last year. However, he had taken 20 wickets in the IPL 2022, the highest for the Gujarat Titans, who won the tournament.

Rohit Sharma, the team’s captain, emphasised Bumrah’s significance to the group prior to the commencement of the T20 series versus Australia last month.
