New Delhi: The Indian team has suffered a major setback before the three-Test series played with South Africa. Team India's veteran fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the entire Test series. The first match of the series will be played on October 2 in Visakhapatnam. Left-arm fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has suffered a minor stress fracture in his lower back, which has ruled him out of the entire Test series. The BCCI has also announced the replacement of Jaspreet Bumrah.
Umesh Yadav will be part of the fast bowling attack in this home Test series replacing Jasprit Bumrah. 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 Team India. 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. It is to be known 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 he recover, then he can play on his soil against Bandladesh.
