After India emerged champions in the recently-concluded T20 World Cup 2024, three senior cricketers of the triumphant squad announced their retirements.

Star batsman Virat Kohli, who was named Player of the Match in the final, was the first to reveal his decision immediately after the game. India skipper Rohit Sharma followed suit during the post-match press conference. A few hours later, star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also joined them in retiring from the format.

Now, speculation is gaining traction among the fans that Team India’s premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah may follow the trio’s footsteps and soon announce his retirement from the shortest format of the game.

However, in response, Bumrah refuted the possibility.

Retirement is not happening,” Bumrah said when unexpectedly asked about it during the felicitation ceremony at Wankhede Stadium. 

“I’ve only just begun, and I wish this question remains far in the future,” he added.

Notably, Bumrah spearheaded the bowling attack for the Men in Blue in the recently-concluded T20 World Cup.

The premier pacer claimed 15 wickets at an average of 8.26. Bumrah’s most impactful display came in the summit clash where his economical spell in the death overs dashed South Africa’s hopes of victory.
