Jasprit Bumrah absent from Mumbai Indians pre-Diwali celebration picture

Mumbai Indians took to their official Twitter handle and posted a picture which had a majority of their team players, support-staff members and its owners. But one thing that caught everyone’s eyes was Jasprit Bumrah’s absence from the picture. And a fan trolled the Mumbai Indians for the same reason,

Bumrah recently sustained a back injury because of which he was not picked against South Africa and is not available for the upcoming series against Bangladesh as well. He underwent surgery and is currently undergoing rehabilitation which has kept him away from cricket associated activities. And this can be a major reason behind his absence from Mumbai Indian’s Diwali celebration event.

Here’s Mumbai Indians’ tweet:

After watching the picture, a fan replied to Mumbai Indians post and asked a question, ” Where is Bumrah” taking a dig over the pacer’s omission. He asked if Bumrah is changing his IPL team to Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore, and wrote, “Where is Bumrah? I think he is changing to RCB?”

Here is the fan reaction:

In a reply to the fan, MI official on Twitter reverted back with a GIF in which Rohit Sharma is asking the fans to just “stay calm”.
