Deepak Chahar was playing for India A and he was called on for the national team to replace Bumrah. He may continue in T20Is as well as ODIs. He stood as the highest wicket-taker for India A in the tri-series against England Lions in the 50-over format.

He picked seven wickets at an average of 12.71 with economy above4.44. He made a splendid performance for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. His economy rate in that series was above 7.28. Apart from Washington Sundar, Bumrah is another player to miss out the tournament.  Sundar missed out the tournament due to an ankle injury.

He will be replaced by Akshar Patel in ODis and Krunal Pandya in T20Is. They are playing for India A currently. They represented KXIP and MI in IPL 2018.

Jasprit Bumrah played a good series against Ireland with impressive figures by taking wickets consistently. His absence will be a point to be worried about for Indian team because he needs a good experience in England to understand the consequences ahead of World cup 2019. He did a consistent performance for Mumbai Indians in the IPL.

Deepak Chahar took the highest number of wickets in the first game against England Lions for India A and stood as the man of the match. Krunal Pandya made impressive scores as a batsman in IPL for Mumbai Indians and picked a decent number of wickets. The injuries of Bumrah and Sundar made a way for them to get the national call-up.
