India’s pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has been released from the squad for the upcoming fourth Test against England in Ranchi later this week.

“Jasprit Bumrah has been released from the squad for the 4th IDFC First Bank Test against England in Ranchi. The decision was taken keeping in mind the duration of the series and amount of cricket he has played in recent times,” read a statement from the BCCI on Tuesday.

The Indian Express, as reported earlier, understands that while Bumrah was keen on playing all five Tests, with the IPL, T20 World Cup and other marquee assignments coming up, the team management and selectors advised him to sit out the Ranchi Test as he would be needed in the final game in Dharamsala, where the conditions are more conducive for seamers.

Among other updates: KL Rahul, who picked up an injury in Hyderabad earlier in the series and missed out the Visakhapatnam and Rajkot Tests, has also been ruled for the match in Ranchi.

Mukesh Kumar, who made his Test debut for India last year and was dropped from the squad for the Rajkot Test has been recalled.

Festive offer

Having lost the first match, India completed a comeback in the five-Test series with a 434-run shellacking in Rajkot to follow a 104 run win in Vizag.

India’s squad for the 4th Test: Rohit Sharma (C), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel (WK), KS Bharat (WK), Devdutt Padikkal, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep.
