After the news of the injury of Jasprit Bumrah shook the Indian dressing room, there is another big body blow that Virat and Co. has recently faced.
Cricket news: The management has already announced the replacement of the pacer
The Indian team is currently playing a three-match T20I series against England. The visitors won the first match due to the heroics of KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav, while the hosts won the second game and levelled the series.
Before a single ball is being bowled in the series-decider, the Men in Blue have already some reasons to worry.
According to the reports of Sports Tak, one of India’s key bowler in the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar is going to miss the final game because of a back-stiffness.
Prior to Bhuvi’s injury, Virat Kohli and his men have dealt with the injuries of Jasprit Bumrah and Washington Sundar, and both the players were ruled out of the series.
Fortunately appropriate replacements were present in the likes of Deepak Chahar, who recently played for India A. He was presented with his debut ODI cap by Virat Kohli.
The bowling department without the help from Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah will be under severe pressure and test. The management hopes Bhuvi’s fitness before the ODI series begin.
However Bhuvi has not done much recently, as he went wicket-less in the first match against Ireland and was rested during the second match because of a change in tactics.
In the first match against England, he was his side’s most expensive bowler as he conceded 45 runs. In the second match, he bowled three economical spells and took Jonny Bairstow’s wicket, but failed to defend 12 runs of the ultimate over as Alex Hales won the match for his team.
