Jasprit Bumrah out
All the countrymen are waiting for the Asia Cup to be held from August 27 and the reason for this wait is the expectation from their favorite team India that India will win this important cup this time. But now before that a bad news is coming out for the Indian cricket fans. Actually, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who is called the life of Indian bowling, has been out of the Asia Cup. After this news, the Indian team including crores of cricket lovers is also seen getting a big setback. According to the report of PTI, Jasprit Bumrah has been battling his back injury for some time now. Because of which he was rested by the team management during the West Indies series as well.
KL Rahul joins the team
During the Asia Cup, India’s artistic batsman KL Rahul seems to be making a comeback. With the return of KL Rahul, the team’s batting order is definitely going to get stronger. But it becomes a bit difficult for every player to get into his batting rhythm once he returns to the team after some time. Now it has to be seen whether KL Rahul will be able to play a strong innings for the team during the Asia Cup.
