According to the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Jasprit Bumrah was abruptly pulled from a three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka as a preventative move. (BCCI). Since then, Bumrah’s career has experienced three turbulent months, and things have only gotten worse for him. He travelled by plane to New Zealand, underwent back surgery, and even made it back to his native country, but the BCCI has remained resolutely quiet.
On Wednesday, there was the first official announcement, or proof, that Bumrah would not be participating in the IPL. Bumrah’s departure will be significant for the team, according to Rohit Sharma, who was speaking to the media from the Mumbai Indians platform.
“It will be a big miss,” the India skipper said. “It is sad, but we do understand how big his shoes are to fill.”
“Yes, we have been discussing a few options and hopefully we can close it in the next couple of days and let you know about it,” Rohit said of potential replacement for Bumrah in the Mumbai Indians side.
