    Jasprit Bumrah IND vs AUS: After having lost three big games while defending an above-par total, the Indian bowling attack is surely looking as a serious concern. The Indian team suffered disappointing back-to-back defeats at the hands of Pakistan and Sri Lanka during Asia Cup 2022 and then things once again crumbled for the hosts as they conceded another poor 4-wicket loss against Australia even after setting a big target of 208 runs in the first T20I. The India vs Australia 2nd T20I encounter will be taking place at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on 23 September, 2022.

    Without much of doubt, India have certainly missed the services of right-arm speedster Jasprit Bumrah during the last few T20I games. While returning from a long injury lay-off, the Indian team management decided to rest Bumrah in the first T20I against Australia on Tuesday and as a result, Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceded a total of 52 runs in his four overs and Harshal Patel also went for as many as 49 runs in his quota of four overs. It is now very much likely that the premier pace bowler will return to the playing XI for the crucial second T20I match against Australia on Friday. On the eve of the second game, Suryakumar Yadav also gave glimpse of hope that Jasprit Bumrah is ready to be back in action while skipper Rohit Sharma noted during the toss that the pacer will definitely be part of the side for the next two games of the series.

    “Actually, I am not aware of any such communication, it is not my department, you should not ask me about it (laughs). These are for physios and team management to answer. Absolutely, he is ready, nothing to worry,” said Suryakumar Yadav during the pre-match press conference.

    In case Jasprit Bumrah is completely fit, senior pacer Umesh Yadav is likely to make way in the playing 11 for the second T20I encounter against Australia.
