The absence of Jasprit Bumrah will make space for fast bowlers like Umesh Yadav or Md. Siraj in the squad. Obviously, the pace bowling attack would be lead for India by experienced campaigner Ishant Sharma.
It is notable that Bumrah is also not the part of the 5 match T-20 series to held next against England. So, the paceman is going to miss some international cricket before coming back into action with the IPL.
