Due to an injury, Mohammed Shami was ruled out of the Bangladesh ODI series: A hand injury has reportedly kept India’s pacer Mohammed Shami out of the upcoming three-match One-Day International series against Bangladesh.
A BCCI source stated on Saturday that senior fast bowler Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the ODI series against Bangladesh, which begins on Sunday, due to a hand injury.
After Shami returned from Australia, where the Indian team lost in the semifinals of the T20 World Cup, it was learned that the injury occurred during a training session. Shami may also be unable to participate in the upcoming two-Test series, which begins on December 14 in Chittagong.
Mohammed Shami has experienced a hand injury that he supported in the wake of continuing preparation post-T20 World Cup in Australia.” He has been requested to report at the NCA and has not traveled with the team on December 1,” an anonymous senior BCCI source told PTI.
Shami’s injury extent is still unknown.
The 33-year-old Bengal speedster is a basic piece of India’s ODI plan of things, going into the World Cup one year from now.
India needs to win every game to remain in contention for the upcoming World Test Championship final at the Oval in June, so skipper Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid would be concerned if Shami does not play in the Test series.
The source stated, “Shami’s absence from three ODI games is definitely a factor, but his likely absence from Tests, where he is supposed to spearhead the attack in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah”
In 60 Test matches, Shami has picked up 216 wickets.
