    India’s premium pacer Jasprit Bumrah is set to be rested for the fourth Test match against England as per reports. His participation in the fifth and final Test match will depend upon the result of the penultimate match.

    The pacer was supposed to rest for the third match but the think tank decided to play him to get the desired lead. It is important to manage the 30-year-old pacer’s workload owing to his injury-prone body.

    Here, we look at three options that can replace Jasprit Bumrah in the playing XI for the fourth test match against England.

    The Indian management has been pushing Mukesh Kumar across all the formats in recent months. The management considers him as a potential performer for the national side.

    However, he hasn’t been impressive in his short Test career so far. The absence of Mohammed Shami in the squad will allow Mukesh to get another chance to revive his red-ball career.

    He was recently released from the Indian squad to play for his state Bengal against Bihar in the Ranji Trophy. He picked up a 10-wicket haul, which will solidify his case for the selection.
