Shami’s injury came as a major blow for Team India. The T20 Squad made a come back of senior players like Yuvi and Nehra. It’s been long that we have watched them in action with the Indian Jersey.
Gujarat and Mumbai Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah earned his place in Team India for T20 against Australia due to his performance and a replacement for Shami’s injury.
Bumrah who is just 22 will leave for Australia on Jan 22 along with other T20 members i.e. Yuvi, Bhajji, Nehra, Raina and Hardik Pandya.
Bumrah has been the 3rd highest wicket taker with 14 wickets forGujarat for the Syed Mushtaq Trophy.
Bumrah has taken 38 wickets in T20’s with an average of 17, Economy rate of 6:27 and Strike rate of 16:00.
He has been the highest wicket taker in Vijay Hazare Trophy with 21 scalps and also the highest wicket taker in the Ranji season of 2014-15 for Gujarat with 38 scalps.
He is a superb Yorker player and made the captain cool out with a Yorker and this lad also played in Gabba 2014 for India A againstAustralia A and made a haul for 5/132.
If he performs well against Australia in the T20s then he will surely earn a place for the world T20.
All the Best Bamrah:)
