India Squad Announced For ODI Series vs Australia

With the second IND vs AUS game just a few hours away, Indian premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the second game. The fast bowler didn’t travel with the team for the second ODI in Indore and therefore won’t be part of the match. 

Jasprit Bumrah after the first game in Mohali went to see his family at home. He was also rested by BCCI for the second IND vs AUS game. The fast bowler recently became a partner and it can be assumed that he’ll be going to meet his new-born son. 

Jasprit Bumrah will be joining the team for the last IND vs AUS game in Rajkot. In his place, BCCI called Mukesh Kumar into the team for the second match in Indore. It remains to be seen if the Bengal pacer will get the opportunity in the game or not.

BCCI released the official statement, saying: “Mr Jasprit Bumrah did not travel with the team to Indore for the 2nd ODI against Australia. He has gone to visit his family and given a short break by the team management. Fast bowler Mukesh Kumar has joined the team as Bumrah’s replacement for the 2nd ODI. Bumrah will join the team for the final ODI in Rajkot.”

Jasprit Bumrah performed reasonably well in the first IND vs AUS game. He picked on the wicket and was economical as well. India won the first game by the margin of 5 wickets and took a 1-0 lead in the series.
