There were reports that Jasprit Bumrah’s availability in the 20-20 World Cup 2022 might be in jeopardy because he picked a back stress fracture. He missed the first T20I against South Africa after he complained of back pain, and subsequently, Mohammed Siraj was announced as a replacement to Bumrah for the two remaining T20Is in the South Africa series.
But now, reports are coming in that Jasprit Bumrah is doing well and he is very much on the road to recovery. There is a possibility that India’s ace of pace may well fly to Australia if he recovers in time. This will be a piece of big positive news for the Indian Team heading into the mega event.
“Was traveling the last couple of days so missed out on quite a bit… So, all those worried about the possibility of Jasprit Bumrah missing the World Cup… please don’t be. He is in very good hands & the word coming out right now is extremely positive — he may fly. Fingers crossed,” said a tweet from K Sriniwas Ra, a reputed journalist.

Reports emerged on Thursday that the pace spearhead for India is in danger of missing the 20-20 World Cup 2022 due to a back stress fracture. The ace of pace for India had missed the Asia Cup 2022 due to a back spasm and the last match that he played was against Australia. He has been missing in action since then.
Jasprit Bumrah has been the go-to bowler for India across all formats and offers a full package with the ball. He provides an all-around package with the ball in the sense that he can bowl for India in the powerplay and also in the death with those razor-sharp yorkers coming in from an unorthodox action.
This is the beauty of Jasprit Bumrah as a bowler, and it is his X factor that he possesses that allows him to thrive against difficult oppositions and also in difficult conditions.
