Jasprit Bumrah

Reportedly, Jasprit Bumrah is set to take a break during the fourth Test against England.

The main fast bowler for India, Jasprit Bumrah, is going to take a break during the next Test match in Ranchi. This match starts on February 23. The decision to give Bumrah a break is because the Indian team wants to manage his workload better.

The Indian team plans to leave Rajkot and go to Ranchi on Tuesday, but Bumrah might not go with them for the fourth Test. Whether Bumrah plays in the last Test in Dharamsala depends on how he feels after the Ranchi Test, the report added.

Bumrah will probably travel from Rajkot to Ahmedabad by road on Monday. It’s about a four-hour drive. Bumrah has taken the most wickets in the series so far, with 17. He has bowled nearly 81 overs in the first three Tests in Hyderabad, Vizag, and Rajkot.

Like Bumrah, another fast bowler, Mohammed Siraj, was rested earlier during the second Test in Vizag. Right now, there’s no news about whether another bowler will replace Bumrah for the Ranchi match.

Mukesh Kumar, who was let go from the squad for the third Test so he could play a Ranji game for Bengal, is expected to join the team again in Ranchi.
