There were great expectations that Bumrah will rejoin India’s squad for the match against Sri Lanka, but it appears the bowler would need a little more time to get back to full health.
One of the main factors contributing to India’s failure to advance in the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup was Bumrah’s exclusion from the squads. Some even accused the BCCI of hastily returning Bumrah. It appears that the board is unwilling to take a chance with the star pacer this time.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee has selected bowler Jasprit Bumrah for India’s ODI team for the forthcoming MasterCard 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, according to the press release.
