Hello @Akshith Kumar ,

You can change the "Estimation Statistic" to the custom field you use for your estimations from your board config :


Kind regards.

Hi @Akshith Kumar 

It looks like someone might have edited that field in your instance. 

Go to Settings > Issues > Custom Fields

Search for the Story Points field and see if that is what it has. 

If so, you need to find out why someone in your organization changed that.
