Jasprit Bumrah has been officially ruled out of T20 World Cup 2022 on Monday. The BCCI confirmed the news via a press release. It is worth noting that Bumrah had already left the Indian squad and went to the National Cricket Academy, Bengaluru to recover from his back injury. Speculations were already rife that the ace pacer would miss the mega event in Australia this year and BCCI on Monday confirmed the same. The absence of Bumrah comes as a big blow for India, whose pacers are already not in their groove ahead of the T20 extravaganza.
Fans in social media were quick to react as BCCI confirmed the news of Bumrah missing World Cup on Monday.

I will go with @MdShami11 as @Jaspritbumrah93 replacement— Ram(@itsme_rrr9438) October 3, 2022
Pace & accuracy do matter in #Australia pitches
With very less offer on swing it's difficult to get #Chahar as replacement #T20WorldCup #IndianCricketTeam#JaspritBumrah
Get ready for 2023 WorldCup BOOM BOOM! You have a lot to makeup for.— Balakrishna Nandigam (@imkrishh) October 3, 2022
This news is very much expected yet both Ganguly and Dravid gave misleading statements that his injury is not confirmed WHY ? @BCCI transparency is annoying sometimes #JaspritBumrah #Bumrah https://t.co/FNRt8FvO4l
Bumrah had made his return to India's playing XI in the second T20I against Australia in September. He had made a comeback to the national side after missing more than two months of action due to his back injury.
Bumrah underwent recovery in NCA, Bengaluru but he could play only two matches on his return with the third T20I against Australia being his latest game.
He then missed the first T20I against the Proteas and the BCCI named Mohammed Siraj as his replacement later, while also confirming about his injury.
The return was also mediocre for Bumrah in terms of performance as the second T20I saw him register figures of 1 for 23 in two overs and the second game saw him leaking 50 runs for no wicket in 4 overs.
