Bumrah previously missed the Asia Cup 2022 due to a back injury and returned to the national side for just one match during the home T20I series against Australia. He was also named in the series against South Africa in the lead-up to the cricketing extravaganza in Australia, which gets underway from October 16.
Jasprit Bumrah’s absence from the national side owing to injuries has raised debates amongst fans
Ever since the news broke, several fans took to social media and bashed the cricketer for being available for his franchise, and missing out on his national duties. A day after it was confirmed that the 28-year-old pacer won’t be taking part in the World Cup, Bumrah left a heartfelt message, expressing his feelings on the lost opportunity.
However, Bumrah in a cryptic post on Instagram also took a subtle dig against the critics. The pacer shared a picture on Instagram on Wednesday evening, which read: “You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.”
