It has been a decade since India last won an ICC title. The 10th anniversary of their Champions Trophy triumph in June was a troubling memory after their recent World Championship defeat against Australia. In the past few years, Indian cricket has boasted many players but has been unable to win the World Championship title. The team has suffered a number of defeats in semi-finals and four defeats in finals during the ten-year period. Recently, when Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was asked what is the final puzzle in the Indian lineup, he said, “First of all, I want all my players to be available. I want them all to be 100 percent. We don’t want any injury concerns.
Bumrah is absent from the team since last year
Starting today, India will play their first test match of the West Indies series, but there are many key players who are missing from the team, such as Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami. While Bumrah is recovering from the injury from last year, Shami is given rest for this series. He has been the spearhead of India’s pace attack in Bumrah’s absence, as the latter last featured for India in September last year. He missed the T20 World Cup and, recently, the WTC final as well. With the World Cup 2023 coming up, Bumrah’s fitness is still a major concern.
