Team India received a big blow ahead of their preparation for the upcoming edition of the Asia Cup T20 when it was announced that speedster Jasprit Bumrah has been ruled out of the competition owing to a back injury. Bumrah, was rested from the West Indies series and subsequently the Zimbabwe tour along with Virat Kohli, however, he hadn’t featured in the last ODI against England due to a niggle.

While Bumrah recovers at the NCA to be fit in time for the T20 World Cup, the BCCI named both Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan in the squad for the Asia Cup alongside Bhuvneshwar Kumar in a three-pace attack. India named a spin-heavy bowling attack featuring the likes of Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi and Yuzvendra Chahal in addition to part-time off-spin of Deepak Hooda.

While many have expressed their surprise at just three pacers in the squad, former Pakistan skipper mentioned that India will miss Bumrah’s experience, especially in the death overs. Butt said that India have shown a lot of faith in their young seamers, who have shown promise but Bumrah is still the best

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Butt said, “India will surely miss Jasprit Bumrah. It does make a lot of difference when a bowler like Bumrah is missing. He is a high-class bowler and also has a lot of experience. He bowls exceptionally during the death overs and is also very effective with the new ball and is a match winner.

“India have given a lot of exposure to their young pacers. They are all quite young, but not new to international cricket. They have been playing a lot of cricket and will be high on confidence. While Bumrah is the best of them all, the rest are also not very new to the scene,” he added.

India will open their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on August 28 in Dubai.
