For last 6 to 8 months I am used to playing without Bumrah: Rohit

BANGALORE: After his team’s eight-wicket defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma said that for the last six to eight months, he is used to playing without star pacer Jasprit Bumrah.  With the comprehensive batting of Royal Challengers Bangalore’s duo Virat Kohli and skipper Faf du Plessis, Royal Challengers Bangalore wiped out MI on April 2 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. 

While fans continue to wait to see Bumrah back on the field with his unique bowling action, he has been unable to join the team due to a recurring injury. He has attempted to make a comeback more than once since suffering a back injury in August which ruled him out of the Asia Cup. Initially, the injury did not seem serious as he was named in India’s T20 World Cup squad in September and even played the last two T20Is against Australia on September 23 and 25. 

Sandeep Warrier replaced the star pacer in the Mumbai Indians squad. “From the last six to eight months I am used to playing without Jasprit Bumrah. Of course this is a different setup but someone needs to put their hand up and step up. We can’t keep dwelling on it. Injuries are not in our control, we can’t do much about it. 

The other guys in the setup are quite talented as well,” Rohit said in a post-match presentation. Mumbai Indians suffered defeat in their first match of the season and did not have an ideal start as they lost wickets early in the first innings.
