SunstarTV Bureau: Jasprit Bumrah was released from India’s squad for the fourth Test against England, starting at the Motera Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday, due to personal reasons on Saturday.
“Jasprit Bumrah made a request to BCCI to be released from India’s squad ahead of the fourth Test owing to personal reasons,” BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said in a media release.
“Accordingly, the fast bowler has been released and he will not be available for selection for the fourth Test.”The 27-year-old pacer will finish the series with four wickets from 48 overs bowled across two Tests. He has already been rested for the white-ball series coming up after the four-Test series.
Mohammed Siraj, who replaced Bumrah in the second Test, looks likely to reclaim his spot but the fit and experienced Umesh Yadav can also be called back.
The board said no addition to India’s squad will be made for the final Test.
