What did Salman Butt say about Jasprit Bumrah?
Butt elaborated: “Jasprit Bumrah will undoubtedly be missed by India. When a bowler like Bumrah is not available, it does make a significant difference in the game.

The white-ball portion of India’s tour of England was the last time anybody saw Jasprit Bumrah in action. This took place a month ago. On the other hand, he was forced to sit out the third and final one-day international of the series because of a back spasm.
During India’s just finished tour of the West Indies, the 28-year-old was given a break to get some relaxation. Before the critically vital Twenty20 World Cup in 2022, Rohit Sharma and the rest of the team will be keeping their fingers crossed that the speedster can get back into full fitness.
In addition, Salman Butt said that India’s younger pacers now have a considerable amount of experience playing international cricket. He also emphasised the way that the administration of the team has provided them with constant opportunities.
According to the former cricket player, India’s fresh crop of fast bowlers will be high on confidence as a result of the team’s recent success in their white-ball assignments.
