Jasprit Bumrah Was Granted Leave For The 4th Test And 5 T20Is
Jasprit Bumrah had been granted leave by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) from the last Test and subsequent T20I series against England and there were reports in the media that the cricketer will get married to Sanjana Ganesan.
Jasprit Bumrah shared the news on Instagram with the caption, “Love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Steered by love, we have begun a new journey together. Today is one of the happiest days of our lives and we feel blessed to be able to share the news of our wedding and our joy with you. Jasprit & Sanjana.”
Jasprit Bumrah and Sanjana Ganesan could be seen donning attires in pink. The duo looks happy as they stare into each other’s eyes.
Bumrah’s Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians (MI) too shared the news and wrote, “Bumrah bowled over by Sanjana. Here’s wishing love, laughter and a happily ever after for Bumrah and Sanjana Ganesan”.
The pacer and Sanjana Ganesan had kept numb about their relationship. Despite the news over them getting married, neither of the two spoke about the same. The wedding was a close-knit affair and was attended by the family and friends of the couple. Jasprit Bumrah was released by BCCI ahead of the 4th Test for personal reasons.
“Jasprit Bumrah made a request to BCCI to be released from India’s squad ahead of the fourth Test owing to personal reasons. Accordingly, the fast bowler has been released and he will not be available for selection for the fourth Test,” said the release.
The Indian pacer was not added to the T20I squad for the England series and is unlikely to be part of the ODI series as well. Jasprit Bumrah, 27, a right-arm fast bowler, has played 19 Tests, 67 ODIs and 50 T20Is for India since making his international debut in 2016. He was, until Friday, India’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is only to be surpassed by Yuzvendra Chahal during the ongoing five-match T20I series against England.
