Another blow for Team India just before their 2nd Test encounter against England as Jasprit Bumrah is still unfit to take part in the series. After some disappointing performances from Umesh Yadav and Hardik Pandya, it looked like Bumrah will make it to the XI but his fitness issue might force India to go with the same attack.
Bowling Coach Bharat Arun said, “Jasprit Bumrah is bowling fit right now but I think it’s too early to put him into a game-like situation because, I think, he needs to come out of the band-aid/plaster on his hand. For the second Test, he is out of contention.”
Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami showed some skills with the red ball while fast bowler Yadav was unable to do well. We might see Kuldeep Yadav in the XI instead of Umesh Yadav.
