BREAKING: Mohammad Siraj replaces injured Jasprit Bumrah for South Africa T20I series


With pacer Jasprit Bumrah ruled out of the remaining two T20Is against South Africa, the Indian national selectors have named Mohammad Siraj as the replacement for the rest of the series. However, the selectors have not ruled out Bumrah from the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 which will be held in Australia next month.

“The All India Senior Selection Committee has appointed Mohd. Siraj has been named in place of injured Jasprit Bumrah for the remainder of the T20I series against South Africa. Bumrah has suffered a back injury and is currently under the supervision of the BCCI medical team.

Indian squad for South Africa T20Is

Rohit Sharma (capt), KL Rahul (vice captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Umesh Yadav Shreyas Iyer, Shahbaz Ahmed, Mohd. Siraj

India will take on South Africa in the second T20I in Guwahati on Sunday (October 2). Rohit Sharma’s team took a 1-0 lead in the series after winning the first game by eight wickets in Thiruvananthapuram.

A BCCI official told news agency PTI that Bumrah will have to be out of action for six months due to a back injury. “Bumrah is definitely not going to play the T20 World Cup. He has a serious back condition. It is a stress fracture and he could be out for a period of six months,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

It is understood that either Deepak Chahar or Mohammed Shami can be included in the main team in place of Bumrah. Both were named as stand-by players for the prestigious tournament by the BCCI.

Bumrah, who played the second and third T20Is against Australia, did not accompany the team to Thiruvananthapuram for the first match of the series against South Africa. With Shami yet to recover from COVID-19 and already ruled out of the T20I series and replaced by Umesh Yadav, the selectors had no option but to bring in Siraj for the remaining T20I games against the Proteas.

However, it will be interesting to see who among Shami, Chahar and Siraj will be picked as replacements if Bumrah is indeed ruled out of the T20 World Cup 2022.
