AUS vs IND: Injured Bumrah Ruled Out Of Brisbane Test
India pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has suffered from abdominal strain ahead of the fourth and final Test against Australia that begins at The Gabba from Friday.
Bumrah was seen holding his stomach during the third Test which ended in a draw at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Monday and had undergone for scans.
While speculation is rife that he won't play the final Test, a BCCI official told that there has been no confirmation on his availability. "There is no confirmation on it yet," said the official when asked about Bumrah's availability.
The team landed in Brisbane on Tuesday afternoon and will assess his injury over the next couple of days.
The right-arm pacer has three days to recover and the Indian team will do its best to ensure his availability for the final Test as his absence following the pullout of Umesh Yadav (injured in second Test), Mohammed Shami (injured in first Test) and Ishant Sharma (who didn't travel at all to Australia), will mean that the visitors will be forced to field a very inexperienced pace attack at The Gabba.
