Jasprit Bumrah suffered from back injury ahead of the T20I series against South Africa | AFPThe news of Jasprit Bumrah reportedly suffering a stress fracture to his back and the possibility of being ruled out of the T20 World Cup 2022 has put the Team India fans in some desperation.

Bumrah had already missed a significant number of matches after the England tour including the Asia Cup 2022 before making his comeback to the Indian team for T20Is against Australia. But after a pitiful performance in two T20Is, he complained of back pain before the first T20I against South Africa.

Now he is in NCA for further determination of the seriousness of his back injury. There have been reports floating that the injury is a stress fracture and which might put him out of commission for up to four months, though no surgery might be needed.

However, there are some reports stating that Bumrah’s injury is not that serious and he may actually get fit in time for India’s first match in T20 World Cup against Pakistan on October 23 in Melbourne.

These reports of the update on Jasprit Bumrah’s fitness got huge backing when senior journalist K Shriniwas Rao tweeted on September 30, 2022, that fans should not worry about Bumrah missing the ICC event.

He is in very good hands & the word coming out right now is extremely positive -- he may fly. Fingers crossed,” K Shriniwas Rao tweeted.  

Any official update on Jasprit Bumrah’s condition by BCCI is still awaited.
