Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has pulled out from the ODI seris against England for his marriage as per reports in ANI. Bumrah was released from the squad ahead of the fourth Test due to personal reasons. Bumrah will finish the series with four wickets from 48 overs bowled across two Test matches. He was also rested from the second Test in Chennai as part of the team’s workload management. Now fresh reports in ANI claim that the Indian pacer will get married during the ODI series which is why he has opted to miss out on the series.
Jasprit Bumrah To Tie The Knot
Speaking to ANI, sources in the BCCI in the know of developments have confirmed that the pacer is set to get married soon and has taken a leave to prepare for the same.
“He informed the BCCI that he is getting married and has taken the leave to help in preparations for the big day,” the source said.
Jasprit Bumrah was rested from the T20I series against England and subsequently will miss the ODI’s as well. His unavailability from the entire white-ball leg against England allows India to try out new players.
The Indian team management has not asked for Bumrah’s replacement for the fourth Test as yet. Mohammed Siraj is likely to replace him in the XI in the fourth Test at the Motera. Umesh Yadav who has been added to the squad after passing the fitness Test is also another option.
India beat England in the third Test to knock them, out of the World Test championship final race. At the moment India are topping the WTC points table and are favorites to play the final against New Zealand at Lord’s in June later this year. However, to guarantee themselves of a spot on the final Team India would need to ensure that they do not lose the fourth and final Test match against England.
