Here’s The Latest Update On Jasprit Bumrah’s Injury: The Indian bowlers kickstarted brilliantly against South Africa after suffering a lower-order collapse on Day 3 of the ongoing Boxing Day Test match in Centurion. While the Indian bowlers kept everyone on the edge of their seats as they went all over the Proteas batsmen, however, an unfortunate incident involving Jasprit Bumrah left everyone shocked.

India’s pace sensation Jasprit Bumrah ended up twisting his right ankle while in the follow-through during the SA innings. Bumrah was briefly attended by the team physio on the field as he lay on the field wincing in pain before he was seen walking off in pain to the pavilion.
