“I don’t know the status of his injury because I did not play the last game (3rd T20I). Hopefully, he recovers, but I really don’t know the status of his injury.”
Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah was awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ award for his career-best ODI figures of 6/19 against England in the first ODI on July 12.

ENG VS IND: Jasprit Bumrah bowled a stunning spell
While talking about the game, Bumrah explained: “It’s not about picking and choosing games. It’s about understanding the priorities. So if there’s a World Cup coming up or a WTC final, you have to look at the calendar and prioritize accordingly. We discuss all these things with the team management and decide accordingly. It’s very difficult. Five days back (seven days), we were playing a Test match. We have already played T20Is and now the ODIs. Mental adjustment and remaining fresh is very important.”
He further added that a minimum of 8-10 hours of sleep is needed sometimes for the pace bowlers to recover because fast bowling is a tough job. But he also stated that they are professionals and they dreamt of playing for India as children, so they can’t complain too as well.
After the second ODI at Lord’s, India will play their final match at Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday (July 17). Looking for more betting apps in India? Check out live cricket odds and bet on live cricket games with our amazing betting bonuses!
