India and South Africa clashed in the first of the three T20Is at Trivandrum on September 28, 2022, and it came with huge shocking news for the Indian team fans. India recently won the T20I series against Australia 2-1 and will look to get better off Proteas as well.

Indian team is missing the services of Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for his series as the duo has been rested, while Mohammad Shami was ruled out before only due to his Covid infection, from which he has recovered.

However, at the toss for the first T20I, which Rohit Sharma won, he revealed that ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah will not play in this match due to a niggle and in his place, Deepak Chahar came into the XI, as he opted to field first.

The BCCI then informed everyone on Twitter of the real reason behind Jasprit Bumrah’s absence from the team, posting: "Jasprit Bumrah complained of back pain in during India's practice session on Tuesday. The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He is ruled out of the first T20I.”

Bumrah had missed the West Indies tour and the Asia Cup 2022 due to back spasms and has just returned to the Indian team in the Australian T20I series. He played two matches and went for runs in both of them, 1/23 in 2 overs and 50 runs in 4 overs.

And with the T20 World Cup 2022 coming up soon, this new development of Jasprit Bumrah still suffering from back issues has put the Indian cricket team fans in panic mode, given that his presence is necessary in Australia as he leads the Indian pace attack.

Many fans shared their feelings on Bumrah’s injury update on Twitter and here are some of the best reactions.
