India pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the fourth Test, three days ahead of the game. The fourth Test will start on February 23 in Ranchi and the home team is leading the series 2-1. Bumrah has played all the games of the series. Given the history of his injuries, specifically, his back, the board has decided to rest him for the game.

On the other hand, former vice-captain, KL Rahul, who was reported to make his comeback in the team, continues to be ruled out. As per the media release, the right-hander’s inclusion in the last Test next month is subject to fitness. This means Rajat Patidar will get another opportunity in this series to prove his mettle.

Jasprit Bumrah has been released from the squad for the 4th IDFC First Bank Test against England in Ranchi. The decision was taken keeping in mind the duration of the series and the amount of cricket he has played in recent times.

“Meanwhile, KL Rahul is ruled out of the 4th Test. His participation in the final Test match in Dharamsala is subject to fitness.

Mukesh Kumar replaced Jasprit Bumrah

The Mumbai Indians player in the IPL has been replaced by Mukesh Kumar, who was hammered in the Vizag Test early this month. He was dropped from the team ahead of the third Test played last week

“Mukesh Kumar, who was released from the squad for the third Test in Rajkot, has joined the squad in Ranchi,” the Indian Board said in the release.

India’s updated squad for the 4th Test: Rohit Sharma (C), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel (WK), KS Bharat (WK), Devdutt Padikkal, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep.
