Before the start of the ODI series against Sri Lanka, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced that the express fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah will not be making his comeback from injury. Bumrah was earlier named in the squad.

As per BCCI, Jasprit will need some more time to build bowling resilience. Later skipper Rohit Sharma revealed that the star pacer felt some stiffness while bowling at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.

Moreover, BCCI also said in its statement that the selectors have not named any replacement for Bumrah.

Meanwhile, fans were left disappointed with the latest development on Bumrah as they were anxiously waiting for the pacer’s return. 

Several of them flooded social media with their angry reactions to the latest development. Some of them even accused Bumrah of skipping international cricket to play in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL).

Responding to Bumrah’s exclusion from the Indian squad for the ODI series against Sri Lanka, an angry fan tweeted, “Yes fitness jarori uski bhai. Ek adh international se kya jayega, IPL me fit hona chaiye 14 matches hai wha World ki best league hai har year accha khasa amount milta hai , why not ye fit rahe IPL ke liye.”

“Koi jaldi nahi hai direct ipl mein khilana,” wrote another fan.
