India’s pace bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah will not be playing in the forthcoming Test series against South Africa at home. The key pacer, who has been a vital cog of the Indian lineup across all formats, sustained a minor stress fracture in the lower back ruling him out of the three Test encounters.
Despite this setback, the 25-year-old is keen on returning stronger than ever after he successfully undergoes the process of rehabilitation. Bumrah took to Twitter and expressed gratitude to his dedicated fans and announced he will not be demotivated by this development.
Bumrah already has achieved accolades in the short span of time since he made his debut in Test cricket. He became just the second Indian bowler to register a hat-trick in Tests when he accomplished the feat in West Indies.
