While one user asked Bumrah: "Where are you", another simply pitched his swift return to the Indian bowling attack. Known for his versatile bowling and his ability to make death bowling look ridiculously easy in the white-ball cricket, Bumrah is nursing his back injury and is expected to remain sidelined for the entire year. Without the services of India's white-ball pace specialist, India under Rohit Sharma succumbed to the pressure and were handed a seven-wicket trouncing at the hands of Bangladesh.
