Soon after, fans flooded Bumrah's post with queries asking when the fast bowler would return to action. The reaction from fans came after India's seven-wicket loss to Bangladesh in Delhi on Sunday.

The 25-year-old, Bumrah, has been out of action since India's tour of the West Indies. Bumrah missed the Test and T20I series against South Africa at home and he has not been picked for the home series against Bangladesh.
In the first Twenty20 International (T20I), Bangladesh won the toss and opted to field against India.
The visitors managed to restrict India to 148 for six in 20 overs. Mushfiqur Rahim's unbeaten knock of 60 helped Bangladesh register their first-ever T20I win over India.
With the win, Bangladesh lead the three-match series 1-0. The second T20I will be played in Rajkot on Thursday while the final match will be played in Nagpur on Sunday.
After the loss, Rohit Sharma, who is captaining India in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli, said that mistakes on the field affected the outcome of the match.
