Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup due to injury.
The BCCI medical team took the decision after “careful evaluation and consultation with experts”.
The news is not far-fetched as the 28-year-old quick was sent to Bengaluru for expert advice after being ruled out of the game against South Africa, but it is a decision the Indian camp was hoping to avoid.

Bumrah’s absence is another big blow for India, who also lost Ravindra Jadeja to a knee injury that required surgery last month.
After Bumrah’s resignation, the BCCI announced that it would soon select a replacement for the bowler in the squad for the tournament.
Bumrah’s place could go to Mohammad Shami, who was named as a 15-man reserve alongside Deepak Chahar-e-Maramordi’s teammate, but Mohammad Siraj is also likely to be in the conversation after being called up as cover for the last two games against the national team. proteins
Bumrah has been an important part of India's bowling attack, with his quick pace making it difficult to control the yorkers especially during the death overs in T20 cricket.
He has taken 70 T20 international wickets in 60 matches since 2016.
India have until October 15 to make any changes to their squad and their first match is on October 23 against Pakistan at the MCG in Melbourne.
