Here's Why Jasprit Bumrah Was Released From Indian Test Squad Ahead Of 4th Test
India pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah, whose request to sit out the fourth and final Test against England was accepted by the BCCI, faces no injury issues.
The right-arm pace bowler is in his home city, where he grew up and his mother stays and has decided to take time off to rest and tend to a personal matter before he gets into a grueling season again in a bio-secure environment with the Indian Premier League, the tour of England and the World T20.
"There is no concern about him with regard to fitness. He just wanted to take time off and give himself some rest at his home and importantly tend to a very personal matter," said an official in the know of things.
The 27-year-old, who has emerged as India's strike bowler across formats over the last couple of years, faced a serious back injury in late 2019 and missed the last four months of that year recuperating.
