Top 5 Sports News Headlines Today, September 24, 2019:In a major setback to India, pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah was on Tuesday ruled out of the upcoming Test series against South Africa due to stress fracture in his lower back. Fellow paceman Umesh Yadav replaced him in the Indian squad for the three-match series, beginning in Visakhapatnam from October 2.
“The injury was detected during a routine radiological screening. He will now undergo rehabilitation at NCA and will be monitored by the BCCI Medical Team. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Umesh Yadav as Bumrah’s replacement,” the BCCI said in a release. Yadav last played a Test for India in December 2018, during the tour of Australia. Bumrah had been rested from the recently-concluded Twenty20 series against South Africa, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
