India paceman Jasprit Bumrah, who got married to TV presenter Sanjana Ganesan in Goa on March 15, is currently on leave from national duty. Only close relatives attended his wedding function in Goa due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
On Friday (March 26), Bumrah’s wife came back to the studios and was seen hosting the pre-match show for the ongoing second One Day International (ODI) between India and England. Sanjana is a part of Star Sports’ team alongside VVS Laxman and Irfan Pathan.
After spotting Sanjana in the pre-match show, fans couldn’t stop themselves from asking about the absence of Bumrah. The right-arm speedster has not played for India since the third Test against England last month. He is likely to make his return in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) for Mumbai Indians (MI).
Here is how Twitter reacted:
