Jasprit Bumrah set to be rested for the fourth test 


Ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah is set to be rested for the penultimate test of the five test match series against England. The India speedster, who was said to be rested for the third test of the ongoing England series, will now be permitted to skip the upcoming test in Ranchi. His participation in the final test is a decision for later and could likely depend on the result of the fourth Test, commencing on February 23.

Rohit Sharma and co will fly out of Rajkot on Tuesday (February 20 ) and Bumrah is unlikely to travel with the team. He will perhaps move to Ahmedabad. As of now there is no information of any other player missing the next test. 

Bumrah has been rested as part of the workload management by the Indian cricket team. With 17 wickets to his name, Jasprit is the leading wicket taker in the ongoing series. 

Mohammed Siraj was rested in a similar fashion for the Vishakhapatnam test. There is no information on the team seeking a replacement for Bumrah. Mukesh Kumar, who was released from the third test so he could feature in the Ranji game for his state Bengal, will rejoin the squad in Ranchi. India also have the option to give Akash Deep his debut cap. The Bengal seamer earned his maiden call up to the squad ahead of the third test.
