Before the second T20 match against Australia, Team India’s middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav gave an update about Jasprit Bumrah.
Suryakumar Yadav said that there is nothing to worry about Bumrah’s fitness and that the fast bowler has recovered from his back injury and is all set to take the field.
Bumrah was not part of the Indian team in the Mohali match and Rohit Sharma said that he has come back from injury and we don’t want to rush him.
When Suryakumar Yadav was asked what is the team’s plan regarding Bumrah’s fitness and Umesh Yadav, he said that I have no idea about the team’s plan for any player. This is not my department. Physio and team management can answer this question.
However, the atmosphere in the team is good and all the players are fit and ready for the second match, he added. When asked again about Bumrah, he said that he is fully prepared, and there is nothing to worry about.
In the absence of Bumrah, the Indian team failed to defend the target of 208 runs. The fast bowlers had conceded more than 150 runs. Suryakumar, defending the bowlers, said that in fact after the last match we did not discuss but there was dew in the ground.
You have to give credit to Australia, they played aggressive cricket. On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav said about his batting order that I am flexible about it and I do not have any special role.
I am ready for any situation and ready to bat at any number. Whatever number I am asked to bat at, I know I just have to play my part and I am happy with that.
