Ahead of the upcoming fourth Test against England, pacer Jasprit Bumrah was relieved from India's squad due to personal reasons, and now it has come into knowledge that the bowler had asked for some days off as he is getting married.

Speaking to ANI, sources in the BCCI in the know of developments have confirmed that the pacer was set to get married soon and has taken a leave to prepare for the same.

"He informed the BCCI that he is getting married and has taken the leave to help in preparations for the big day," said the source.

The 27-year-old Bumrah played two Tests in the ongoing four-match series against England.

Bumrah was rested for the second Test against England at Chennai and he returned wicketless in the third Test as spinners did a majority of the work.

The pacer has also been rested for the upcoming five-match T20I series against England.

India is 2-1 up in the four-match Test series against England and if the hosts win or draw the last match, they would qualify for the finals of the World Test Championship. ANI
