Bumrah had injured his back ahead of the Asia Cup last month and had hence missed the crucial tournament in the UAE. He however returned for the home series that followed against Australia, but was sidelined once again with the same injury and was eventually ruled out of the T20 World Cup.

With India set to play New Zealand and Bangladesh after the World Cup in Australia, Bumrah was expected to recover in time and join the squad, but he wasn't picked for either of the four series.

Speaking to the press after the announcement of India's squad, Chetan revealed that the team management would want to be rather patient and not rush into his return as they had done the previous time with T20 World Cup around the corner.

“He will be back soon. Hoping we will play for India again soon. We hurried Jasprit Bumrah before the T20 World Cup and you saw what happened. So we want to be patient now. NCA team is looking after him well. Right now, we are a little cautious about including Bumrah. When we rest a player, there is a reason behind it,” he said.

The New Zealand series will begin from November 18.
