The Indian team is currently engaged in a three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series against South Africa, which would be its final
T20I series before the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup in Australia that gets underway on October 16.
With pacer Jasprit Bumrah injured again, his participation looks doubtful, but reigning Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly has refused to rule him out entirely.
India is currently waiting on the fitness of all-rounder Deepak Hooda and Bumrah, as they are nursing back injuries and are presently rehabbing at the NCA.
Both have been ruled out of the South Africa T20Is. "Bumrah is not out of the World Cup yet," told Ganguly to a Bengali news channel.
Bumrah missed the 2022 Asia Cup in the UAE due to back issues and did make his comeback to the T20Is in the T20Is against Australia at home before South Africa.
