Why team India will miss Jasprit Bumrah in ODIs against Australia

The Indian pacer displayed a stupendous performance in the recently concluded Test match series. The Virat Kohli-led side clinched the series 2-1 after the fourth and final game ended in a draw due to incessant drizzling. 

Jasprit Bumrah rested

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been given rest for the upcoming ODI series against Australia and in India's tour of New Zealand.

Bumrah's laudable performance

India ended a 71-year jinx for a Test series victory in Australia on Monday. Australia were all-out for 300 in their first inning, which witnessed the hosts follow-on at home for the first time in 30 years.

In the four-match series, Jasprit Bumrah scalped a total of 21 wickets in his 157.1 overs - more than any other Indian bowler.

Bumrah and his 'perfect yorkers'

Earlier, captain Virat Kohli applauded Bumrah, saying his mindset at the moment is what separates him from anyone else in the world right now and that batsmen around the world should be scared of him. 

Bumrah will be missed for his admirable death-over bowling and perfect yorkers.
