New Delhi: Former wicketkeeper and national selector Saba Kareem has said that the selectors did not include Jaspreet Bumra in the Indian squad for the World Test final. Kareem alleged that Bumra was included in the team in view of his popularity.
The selectors considered Bumra’s reputation to some extent. His current form has not been evaluated. Boomera has not played a Test since being injured during the Australian tour. Only Twenty20 has been played recently. He did not play in the Test against England. He struggled without form in the Tests and did not train. ‘ Saba Kareem clarifies.
But Boomera played in the first Test of the series against England. Ignoring this, Kareem mentions. The Indian pacer took four wickets in the Test in Chennai.
Sabah Kareem added that despite the favorable weather conditions, Bumrah has not been able to find the rhythm in Test cricket and has not been able to find the required length.
