In a major setback for the Indian cricket team, star pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the upcoming Asia Cup clash against Nepal. This news comes after the highly anticipated match against Pakistan was called off due to rain. India’s next match is scheduled to take place on September 4th at Pallekele.
Bumrah had just made his comeback to the team after a long spell on the sidelines. However, he has now been forced to return home due to personal reasons. Thankfully, reports suggest that he will be back in time for India’s first Super 4 encounter, which is expected to be against arch-rivals Pakistan on September 10th.
Bumrah’s absence will be keenly felt by the Indian team, as he plays a crucial role in their bowling line-up. The pacer had made a successful return to the ODI format during the recent T20I series against Ireland. In light of the upcoming ODI World Cup, the Asia Cup was seen as a significant test for Bumrah.
Fans and cricket experts will be eagerly awaiting his return to the team, as India looks to solidify its position as one of the top contenders in the international cricketing arena. Bumrah’s skill, accuracy, and pace have made him a force to be reckoned with, and his absence will undoubtedly be felt by the Indian team.
As India prepares to take on Nepal in their next Asia Cup match, all eyes will be on the team’s performance and their ability to overcome the absence of one of their key players.
