Jasprit Bumrah celebrates Raksha Bandhan early with sister Juhika due to “Team India duties”

Posted On

Jasprit Bumrah celebrated Raksha Bandhan two days earlier as he has been called for “Team India duties” and the 25-year-old pacer “couldn’t miss out on celebrating” the festival with his sister Juhika.

“Team India duties means I won’t be here for Raksha Bandhan but I just couldn’t miss out on celebrating with you, Juhika. Thank you for always being there for me,” he wrote on Twitter.

Bumrah, who wasn’t part of the limited-overs series against the West Indies, will join the Test squad in the Caribbean for a two-match Test series, starting August 22.

He was playing non-stop since the 2019 edition of IPL, and to avoid burnout, the seamer was rested along with all-rounder Hardik Pandya.

The first Test match of the two-match series will be played on August 22 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at Antigua.
