Test Series India has suffered a major setback before the Test series against South Africa. The team’s star bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the entire series due to a fracture in his waist.

Now Bumrah will undergo a rehabilitation process at the National Cricket Academy and will be under the care of the BCCI medical team.

Wrought havoc against West Indies
The bowling department of the Indian Test team has been weakened due to the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, who featured in the top three in the ICC Test rankings by playing just 12 Test matches for the Indian team. Jasprit Bumrah had recently taken 13 wickets in four innings against the West Indies. In two of these four innings, five-wicket halls were also won by Jasprit Bumrah.
Did not play a single Test in India
Let us know that Jasprit Bumrah, who made his Test debut in January 2018, has not played a single Test match on India’s soil. This wait has increased further because, after South Africa, the Test series will be against Bangladesh in November. If they recover, then they can get down to their soil in the Test series against Bangladesh.
