Jasprit Bumrah is out of action for a long time due to back injury. His surgery was recently conducted in New Zealand and the seamer is currently recovering. He will miss the Indian Premier League 2023 and the World Test Championship final.
In an exclusive interview with TimesofIndia.com, former Sri Lanka pacer Dilhara Fernando said that India and Rohit Sharma need Jasprit Bumrah to win the 2023 ODI World Cup. He said Bumrah is a game-changer and can be very helpful for the Men in Blue.
“Jasprit Bumrah has been amazing for India. He is a match-winner in any format of the game. Rohit Sharma and India need him to win the 2023 ODI World Cup,” Fernando told TimesofIndia.com.
“Bumrah is dangerous in Indian conditions. He is a nightmare for the opposition. Team India’s pace attack is good and they are one of the top contenders,” he added.
India will host the 2023 ODI World Cup in October-November.
