According to a report by a Times of India journalist, Jasprit Bumrah is well on track to feature for India at the ICC T20 World Cup next month despite speculations of him having a back stress fracture. The pacer was recently replaced in the squad for the T20I series against South Africa.

Jasprit Bumrah had only recently returned to injury in the T20I series against Australia, where he played the second and third games to guide India to a series victory. He was also a part of the squad to play against South Africa but Rohit Sharma announced during the coin toss that he has been benched owing to a niggle. Later, reports emerged that the bowler had encountered a back fracture ruling him out for up to six months before the Board of Control for Cricket in India announced that Mohammad Siraj will be replacing the 28-year-old for the remainder of the series, adding fuel to the speculations.

However, in the latest reports by Times of India journalist K Shriniwas Rao, the veteran has claimed that there is little to be worried about given the progress Bumrah has been showing in his rehabilitation. He stated that the right-arm quick will certainly feature in the ICC T20 World Cup beginning next month Down Under, with the Men in Blue's campaign scheduled to begin on October 23.

"World Cup is still quite some time away. Let's not jump the gun," BCCI President Sourav Ganguly was quoted saying by RevSportz on the matter.
