ENG vs IND: Why is Jasprit Bumrah Not Playing Today?

India’s skipper Rohit Sharma revealed at the toss that they have made some wholesome changes to their playing 11 that includes the exclusion of their pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah. After not playing the first T20I match, Bumrah made his return to the side for the second game where he picked up excellent figures of 2 for 10 in his three overs that also included a maiden. However, considering his workload management, the visitors have decided to rest their premier speedster before the start of the three-match ODI series against England.

“We would have fielded first. Had batted first twice, wanted to chase at least once. Four changes for us – Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Umran Malik and Shreyas Iyer are in. They replace Bhuvi, Bumrah, Chahal and Hardik. We don’t want to miss out on the winning confidence, but there are a few things we want to have a look at before the World Cup, so the changes. We’re excited for Umran, want to wish him the best and give him confidence,” said India captain Rohit Sharma during the toss.
