MUMBAI: India's star pacer Jasprit Bumrah is likely to be ruled out of the upcoming T20 World Cup, starting October 16. Bumrah is believed to be ruled out of the competition with a back injury.

"Jasprit Bumrah complained of back pain during India's practice session on Tuesday. The BCCI Medical Team assessed him. He is ruled out of the first #INDvSA T20I," BCCI tweeted earlier on Wednesday.

Bumrah had not travelled with the team for the opening T20I against South Africa, played at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.

Bumrah, who was also ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 due to his back problem, and was training at the National Cricket Academy, played the last two T20Is against Australia.

Bumrah's injury comes at a time when skipper Rohit Sharma is bothered about the lack of stability of the bowlers in the death overs.

Mohammad Shami and Deepak Chahar from the reserve team are likely to replace Bumrah in the T20 World Cup squad.
