India named Mohammed Siraj to replace pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, whose World Cup is in jeopardy due to a back injury, for the remaining Twenty20 matches against South Africa on Friday.

Bumrah did not play in India’s opening match against South Africa on Wednesday and is being monitored by a medical team, according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India. In three weeks, India will begin their T20 World Cup campaign.

According to Indian media, the 28-year-old has a stress fracture in his back and will be forced to withdraw from the tournament in Australia.

Bumrah recently played two T20 internationals against Australia but was not at his best, having already missed time due to injury.

Since making his international debut in January 2016, he has played 30 Tests, 72 ODIs, and 60 T20Is for India.

India’s final two home matches against South Africa are on Sunday and Tuesday.
