India will definitely miss the services of their frontline fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah during the IND vs AUS WTC Final 2023 clash starting from Wednesday.

Things are still not looking very much clear at this moment as nothing is clear regarding when he will making a comeback to competitive cricket. Interestingly, the 29-year-old pacer last played for India in a T20I match against Australia in September 2022.

It was Jasprit Bumrah who captained the Indian team during their last Test match in England in 2022 where the visitors suffered a disappointing 7-wicket defeat. Bumrah has played as many as 30 Tests so far having picked up a total of 128 wickets at an average of 21.99 that includes 8 five-wicket hauls. In his absence, both Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj have been the two standout fast bowlers for India in the longest format of the game during recent times.
