Jasprit Bumrah, who is set to join the Indian cricket team in West Indies for a two-match Test series that begins next week took some time out to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with his sister before leaving for Windies. 

“Team India duties means I won't be here for Raksha Bandhan but I just couldn't miss out on celebrating with you, Juhika. Thank you for always being there for me,” Bumrah posted alongside two pictures of him and his sister on Twitter.

India are currently 1-0 up in the three match ODI series. The first game of the series was abandoned, before India won the next game convincingly. They had earlier won the three match T20I series 3-0, with Krunal Pandya starring for the visitors. 

Bumrah was not included in the T20I and the ODI series after the team decided to give him some much-needed rest. The pacer was playing non-stop since the IPL, and to avoid a burnout, he was rested along with Hardik Pandya. 

The first Test match will be played on August 22 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at Antigua.
