With the England side on the roll after whitewashing the Aussies for the first time in the history, India would definitely miss Bumrah’s presence in the bowling line up. Washington Sundar has also suffered a right ankle injury which he sustained whilst playing football during India's first practice session in Malahide on Tuesday, and has been ruled out of the seies.
Deepak Chahar has been called out as the replacement for Jasprit Bumrah. Meanwhile, Krunal Pandya is reportedly being brought as the replacement for Sunder. Chahar captured BCCI’s attention by his performance in the 2018 IPL. 
Bumrah is ranked 10th in ICC’s T20I Bowlers ranking. The good news is that he is expected to be fit before the three-mtch ODI series that begins in Nottingham on 12 July.


England too have made an an addition to their T20I squad, but only for the first game in Manchester. Tom Currain is suffering from a side strain and hence batsman David Malan has been called in as a cover, however Currain is expected to be fit for last two games.
