India’s pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. “Bumrah, who was set to join the team in Guwahati ahead of the ODI series, will need some more time to build bowling resilience. This decision has been taken as a precautionary measure,” BCCI wrote in its media advisory.

The call may have been taken keeping the four-match Test series against Australia in February at home in mind.

Earlier, Bumrah had been added to the India squad for the first time since September 2022, when he picked up a recurring back injury that ruled him out of the 2022 T20 World Cup.

India’s squad for the Sri Lanka ODIs: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya (vc), Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh.
