New Delhi, September 30

Mohammed Siraj today replaced injured pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah for India’s remaining two T20 International matches against the visiting South African team.

Bumrah was on Thursday ruled out of the upcoming T20 World Cup due to a back stress fracture. “The All-India Senior Selection Committee named Mohd. Siraj as replacement for injured Jasprit Bumrah for the remainder of the T20I series against South Africa,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said in a statement today. “Bumrah has sustained a back injury and is currently under the supervision of the BCCI medical team.”

The 28-year-old Siraj, a right-arm pacer, has played so far in five T20Is and picked up five wickets from them.
