India's quick bowler Jasprit Bumrah is anticipated to be nominated for the celebrated Arjuna Award this yr by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) who had fallen behind Ravindra Jadeja (Ravindra Jadeja) in 2019 on seniority.

If the BCCI sends multiple title within the males's class, then senior opener Shikhar Dhawan can also be most popular as he missed it in 2018 whereas the board despatched his nomination.

A BCCI supply instructed PTI, "Last year, we sent three names – Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami – to the men's section."

Bumrah had accomplished solely two years in worldwide cricket, as per the choice standards, the participant had carried out on the prime degree for no less than three years, so he couldn’t obtain it.

"Therefore, it is not Bumrah (who completed three years in international cricket last year) but Jadeja who is senior to him and has been performing continuously for many years," the supply stated.

The 276-year-old has taken 68 wickets in 14 Tests, 104 wickets in 64 ODIs and 59 wickets in 50 T20 Internationals, which has given him a fantastic efficiency within the Indian crew.

The supply stated, "He is unquestionably a fantastic candidate. He was the primary ranked bowler of the ICC. He is the one Asian bowler to have taken 5 wickets in South Africa, England, Australia and West Indies.

It is unlikely that the BCCI will ship the title of Mohammed Shami this time as his spouse has filed a police case towards him for alleged home violence, which implies he won’t be eligible.

As far as Dhawan is anxious, being senior is likely one of the causes that every one his counterparts (Virat Kohli, Ravichandran Ashwin, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara and Jadeja) have obtained the award.

Dhawan, nevertheless, stayed away from cricket for a very long time final yr on account of accidents. But the previous BCCI official stated that Dhawan's seniority can’t be ignored. He stated, "In 2018 we sent Dhawan's name but only Smriti (Mandhana) got the award. So the BCCI can send the names of both Bumrah and Dhawan. "
