The Indian cricket fraternity has gone in shock for a while when the BCCI announced that Jasprit had been ruled out of the mega event in Australia. Because men in blue are facing a major concern in the death bowling attack. Hardik Pandya, Arshdeep Singh, Axar Patel, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been given responsibilities, in different situations, but they are ineffective in the death overs. All the bowlers are leaking runs in the slog-overs. Whether it is experienced Bhuvenshwar Kumar or young star Harshal Patel all are leaking abundant amount of runs. The Young rising pacer Arshdeep Singh has looked impressive in his short time, and it will be interesting to see how he will perform in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022.
BCCI has announced Md. Shami and Deepak Chahar are on the standby list for the mega event. While Mohammed Siraj was named Bumrah’s replacement in the current T20I series against South Africa. He is currently playing three-match ODI series against Proteas and performing very well. Md. Shami is one of the top contenders in the list of Bumrah’s replacements, in the World Cup because of his experience.
The world cricket fraternity is giving its verdict on this big issue. Because the Indian team is one of the top contenders in the upcoming prestigious event. South African legend Dale Steyn said that no one could replace Bumrah’s place in the team. The Indian team will miss him extremely in playing XI.
“You can hope that the World Cup brings an opportunity for somebody to be better than they are sometimes. They perform way better than they usually would. So, whoever takes his place, I hope that will be the case for them. Whoever gets selected probably wants to raise his bar by a small percentage because of he has big shoes to fill. Somebody like Bumrah, it’s so difficult to fill his place. He is such a world-class player. India will miss him tremendously in this World Cup” said Steyn.
Everyone is eagerly waiting for Bumrah’s replacement. India will play their opening encounter against their arch-rival Pakistan on 23rd October 2022 at MCG.
