Following India’s triumphant T20 World Cup victory in Barbados, speculation arose over whether Jasprit Bumrah would join the ranks of retiring players from T20I cricket, including Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Ravindra Jadeja. Despite his stellar performance throughout the tournament, where he emerged as the second-highest wicket-taker with 15 wickets, Bumrah quelled retirement rumors during the felicitation ceremony at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

While Kohli and Rohit praised Bumrah for his crucial role in securing India’s victory against South Africa, the fast bowler himself affirmed his commitment to continuing his career in international cricket, stating, “It’s a long way away. I have just started. Hopefully, it is far away now.”

Bumrah’s pivotal performance in the final match, where he delivered an economical spell in the death overs, helped India defend a challenging target against South Africa. His dedication and resolve were evident amidst celebrations marking India’s second-ever T20 World Cup triumph.
