Consequently, he was ruled out of the Test series against South Africa, which India won by 3-0. Umesh Yadav had replaced Bumrah for the three-match Test series against the Proteas.

India is scheduled to play three T20Is and two Test matches against Bangladesh, starting from November 3. Bumrah has not been included in any of the squad.
