India's hopes of securing a second T20 World Cup title took a big hit after ace fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the forthcoming ICC tournament in Australia. The fast bowler was ruled out of the tournament after sustaining a stress fracture in his back. Bumrah shared a cryptic story via his Instagram account on Wednesday, taking a dig at his critics.
Jasprit Bumrah did not take part in India's Asia Cup campaign due to an injury concern and only made his return to cricket in the T20I series against Australia last month. But the pacer was ruled out of the first T20I against South Africa due to a minor back issue. Later it was revealed that the injury was much more serious than previously thought, ruling him out of the T20 World Cup.
Bumrah's injury sparked a meme fest on the internet, with several fans giving up on India's dream of an ICC trophy since 2013 after the pacer's injury. Many fans even went on to critique the Indian cricketer's commitment to the national side and labeled him just a franchise player. The bowling stalwart took to Instagram, taking a dig at his critics via a renowned quote by Winston Churchill.
“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks,” read Bumrah's story.
