Earlier, before the first T20I between India and South Africa at Thiruvananthapuram, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had said that Bumrah was ruled out of Wednesday’s match after complaining of back pain during practice session on Tuesday.
“Jasprit Bumrah complained of back pain during India’s practice session on Tuesday. The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He is ruled out of the first T20I,” BCCI had said in its statement on Twitter.
Both BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Team India’s head coach Rahul Dravid were hopeful that the 28-year-old pacer will get fit before the tournament starts. However, the injury was clearly much bigger than it was anticipated.
Bumrah, who was out of international cricket since July this year, had missed the T20 Asia Cup in the UAE due to back injury, for which he underwent rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA).
He was then declared fit for the three-match T20I series against Australia at home. In the series, he didn’t play the first game at Mohali, but featured in matches at Nagpur and Hyderabad.
