India vs SA: Mohammed Siraj Replaces Jasprit Bumrah for Remaining Two T20Is
Announcing Siraj’s inclusion in the team, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) stated “The All-India Senior Selection Committee named Mohd. Siraj as replacement for injured Jasprit Bumrah for the remainder of the T20I series against South Africa. Bumrah has sustained a back injury and is currently under the supervision of the BCCI Medical Team.”
The 28-year-old speedster has made only one T20I appearance this year, which was against Sri Lanka in February. The Hyderabad-born cricketer bowled well in that game, conceding only 22 runs in his quota of four overs, and more importantly, picking up the crucial wicket of Danushka Gunathilaka.
He will have form on his side coming into this series, as earlier this month, he picked up six wickets in an English County Championship match for Warwickshire.
