Sunil Gavaskar on Jasprit Bumrah: Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup. BCCI made this announcement on Monday night. Bumrah had to be ruled out of this big tournament due to not fully recovering from the back injury. Former Indian cricketers are terming the news of Bumrah’s exit as a big loss for Team India. The name of great cricketer Sunil Gavaskar is also included in this list. Gavaskar has said that India will miss Bumrah a lot. He said that there is no other bowler in the Indian team who has missed so much.
In his column for ‘Mid-Day’, Gavaskar writes, ‘Jasprit Bumrah’s absence in the World Cup will definitely harm Team India. I respect all bowlers but will say that there is no other bowler in Team India, who I miss so much.’
There will be problems in powerplay and death bowling
Jasprit Bumrah has been the lead bowler of Team India for a long time. His being in the team strengthens the Indian bowling attack in the powerplay and death overs. Now that Bumrah will not be there in the T20 World Cup, then the Indian team may have to face a challenge in these crucial overs.
