Jasprit Bumrah will be sorely missed in the T20 World Cup, and India has no replacement: Wasim Jaffer. “He is an important cog in this Indian team, and he will be greatly miss.” “We don’t have anyone as good as Bumrah to bowl in both the Powerplay and the death (overs),” Jaffer explained.
With less than two weeks until the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. India’s talismanic bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who had been named to the squad. Ruled out due to a stress fracture. Former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer believes there is no suitable replacement for Bumrah and that pacer Mohammed Shami is the best option.
Bumrah will be “sorely miss” according to Jaffer. Who added that no one on the current team is as good as the pacer in the death overs. While the former batter believes Shami is the best replacement, India’s death over concerns will continue. He described Bumrah’s absence as a “massive blow” to the Men in Blue’s plans.
“I don’t believe we have a replacement for Bumrah.” “Jaffer explained to ESPNcricinfo. “He is an important cog in this Indian team, and he will be greatly missed.” We don’t have anyone as good as Bumrah to bowl in the Powerplay and especially in the death (overs). However, Mohammed Shami is the most likely replacement. Shami, on the other hand, is concerned about death bowling. (Bumrah’s absence) will be a huge blow to India’s preparations.”

They hurried him into the game against Australia: Wasim Jaffer
Bumrah had been out of the team since the India tour of England in July due to a back spasm, and he did not return until the recently concluded T20I series against Australia. This also prevented him from competing in the Asia Cup 2022, which was held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Despite the fact that Bumrah was still recovering, he was named to the T20 World Cup squad because he was expected to recover in the meantime. And Jaffer believes that the Indian management rushed the bowler into playing against Australia, which aggravated the injury.
“In retrospect, perhaps they rushed him into playing against Australia.” “Jaffer stated. “He could have taken more time to prepare for the World Cup.” However, we do not know the extent of the injury. The stress fracture was most likely present, but not to that extent. With him playing two games, it could have gotten worse (vs Australia). They jumped the gun and forced him to play those games so soon.”
