Jasprit Bumrah opened his stint with IPL when he was contracted by Mumbai Indians and has represented them in 120 IPL matches to date. He had 145 scalps to his credit and did not play in the 2023 IPL edition due to a back injury. However, he is back now with a bang and recently played in the ICC 2023 World Cup and will surely feature in the 2024 IPL edition.

The Mumbai Indians which saw the trade of Cameron Green to Royal Challengers Bangalore in an all-cash deal also are upbeat with the arrival of Hardik Pandya into their fold.

Will Jasprit Bumrah leave Mumbai Indians and join Royal Challengers Bangalore?

There are two planks of opinion. While a section of fans have come to the conclusion that Jasprit Bumrah has already left Mumbai Indians to join Royal Challengers Bangalore, others are of the opinion that there is no reason for this to happen and Bumrah will stay with the five-time IPL champions. However, it is a possibility that cannot be completely negated.
