Jasprit Bumrah spearheads India’s pace attack across formats. However, his struggles with back problems have become a roadblock to playing all three formats consistently. He has often complained of back problems in the past and, as per reports, he will miss the 20-20 World Cup 2022 because of that.

However, the Indian cricketing body president, Sourav Ganguly has told reporters that Jasprit Bumrah is not entirely ruled out of the prestigious tournament. Meanwhile, Bumrah talked about his early struggles in his cricketing career.

“My mother was forced to start working. We had enjoyed ups before returning to zero one day. As a result, we are now stable when we return to a high because we have experienced a low. We are aware that we cannot lose control. We’ve learned a lot from that time period. We will never be able to repay my mother for all that she has done for us,” Bumrah said.

“She never made me do anything against my will or told me I had to become an engineer or a doctor. In fact, because I was usually playing cricket, it would have been challenging for my mother to imagine me as a doctor or engineer. However, my mother was adamant that I master the English language because she was a school principal,” Bumrah added further.

The premier fast bowler has been a key member of Mumbai based franchise helping them to win 5 titles. Bumrah played key roles in helping team India win matches in overseas conditions, especially in Australia, and England.

Bumrah’s mother worked as a principal at a primary school and reckoned that playing cricket was not a viable option for his family. His father passed away when he was small before his mother Daljit Singh had to toil hard to take care of him and his elder sister. Bumrah has been a key factor for a Mumbai-based franchise for a decade.
