Indian premium fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is out of action for almost five months. Bumrah missed many major events in 2022, the 20-20 World Cup 2022 was also one of them in which India had to face an embarrassing 10-wicket loss in the semifinal against England.
The 29-year-old was expected to make a comeback against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy but now it is reported that the speedster might miss out on the entire season of the Indian T20 League and the WTC final as well. Here we will take a look at 5 players who can replace Bumrah in the WTC final.
Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar was last seen in the longest format in 2018 against South Africa. He took 4 wickets in the match and played some handy knocks in both innings and was named player of the match. However, injuries kept him away from action for a long time.
The 33-year-old can swing both ways and is preparing for the upcoming season of the Indian T20 League. He might replace Bumrah in the WTC final as he has a lot of experience and his ability to swing the balls can be very useful for the team in Oval.
