The Mumbai Indians physio came out and trudged him off the field even as the pace spearhead seemed to be in pain.

Jasprit Bumrah suffered an injury during the IPL game against Delhi Capitals in Mumbai on Sunday, needing the help of Mumbai Indians physio to laboriously walk back to the dugout, a development that will keep the World Cup-bound Indian team on tenterhooks.

The Mumbai Indians team management said before the post match press conference that Bumrah’s injury will be assessed on Monday and any decision will be taken only after the assessment. The fast bowler has recovered well, the team management added.

Having been at the receiving end of Rishabh Pant’s brutal onslaught, Bumrah was seen clutching his left-shoulder area after he dived to save the ball on the final delivery of Delhi Capitals innings in the Indian Premier League.

Pant hit the ball back to Bumrah, who dived to his left in his follow-through to stop it. Bumrah is an important cog in the wheel for the Indian team heading to the United Kingdom in two months time.
