Jasprit Bumrah injuries
The 29-year-old has not featured in the Indian squad since September 2022.

On the eve of the first ODI between India and Sri Lanka, the Men in Blue dealt a heavy blow as their premier seamer Jasprit Bumrah got ruled out of the ODI series.

The 29-year-old has been out of action for most of 2022. He missed the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup due to a back injury. The MI star, who has not featured for India for four months, was rehabilitating in NCA and got declared fit in mid-December.

BCCI announced the squad for the Sri Lanka tour on December 27 without Bumrah, but in a late addition to the team, the selection committee included the pacer on January 3.

However, the apex board issued a press release today, stating that Bumrah needs more time to recover and will miss the Sri Lanka series.

The news did not go well with the fans, who have been waiting for a long time for the star bowler to return. However, they took to social media to troll Bumrah, whom they feel prioritises IPL over national duty.

Here are some of the reactions by the fans.

Notably, Bumrah has played just 29 matches in the past two years and has often surrounded himself by injuries.
