The Ranji Trophy match between Gujarat and Kerala has started at Lalabhai Contractor Stadium. The most special thing in this match was that the bowler who returned from injury in this match was also going to play, and his name is Jasprit Bumrah, but at the last moment he was ‘out’ from this match. According to the reports, Bumrah, who is returning from a back injury, wants to come back with ease. He did not want to bowl more with the return, he also said to Sourav Ganguly, after which the BCCI president changed the rules for Bumrah and allowed him to rest.
Bumrah did not play in Ranji match.
According to a Times of India report, Jasprit Bumrah was ready to play a Ranji match against Kerala but believed that he did not want to put too much weight on his body as he returned to the field. After this Bumrah spoke to Ganguly and BCCI Secretary Jai Shah, after which both advised Bumrah to play with the white ball.
This means that Bumrah will now return directly from the T20 match against Sri Lanka. Let us tell you that it is the rule of BCCI that whoever bowler returns after the injury has to prove his fitness by playing the match and only then he can be part of the playing eleven of the Indian team. However, Ganguly has given Bumrah a waiver in this case, allowing him to play international matches directly.
The Gujarat team also did not want Bumrah in the team. According to reports, the Gujarat team had received instructions from the Team India management not to get more than 8 overs in a day from Bumrah, but the Gujarat team did not want a player who could bowl only 8 to 10 overs. Finally, Ganguly allowed Bumrah to rest and now Bumrah will return to the cricket ground against Sri Lanka on 5 January.
