The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) made the announcement on Saturday that India’s senior fast bowler Mohammed Shami will not be participating in the one-day international series against Bangladesh, which would begin on Sunday. Umran Malik would take Shami’s spot in the team.
It has been discovered that Shami sustained the injury while participating in a training session shortly after his return from Australia, where the Indian squad competed in the T20 World Cup and was eliminated in the semifinals.
Shami might also be unable to play in the following two-match test series, which will begin on December 14 in Chittagong.
“In the lead up to the one-day international series against Bangladesh, fast bowler Mohd. Shami suffered a shoulder injury while participating in a training session.
Because he is currently in the care of the BCCI Medical Team at the NCA in Bengaluru, he will be unable to take part in the three-game series that is currently being played.
The All-India Senior Selection Committee has decided to replace Shami with Umran Malik as the captain of the team “In a press release, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah made the following statement.
The severity of Shami’s wounds is not yet fully understood.
In the one-day international series that will be played against Bangladesh, the pace attack will be comprised of Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik, and Kuldeep Sen.
As India prepares to compete in the 2019 World Cup, the 33-year-old Shami will continue to play an important role in the team’s one-day international strategy.
If the Bengal speedster is unable to participate in the Test series, India’s head coach and captain, Rohit Sharma, will be concerned about the team’s chances of making it to the World Test Championship final, which will be held at the Oval in June. India must win every game in the series to keep their chances alive.
“Shami’s absence from three ODI games is obviously a factor, but bigger worry is his anticipated absence from Tests where he is scheduled to spearhead the attack in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah,” said a BCCI source. “Shami’s absence from three ODI games is definitely a problem,”
Over the course of 60 Test matches, Shami has amassed 216 wickets as a bowler.
Umran Malik is often considered to be one of the sport’s quickest bowlers. Recently, he made his debut in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in New Zealand, where he participated in two games and took two wickets.
India’s squad for Bangladesh ODIs: Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Rajat Patidar, Shreyas Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ishan Kishan (WK), Shahbaz Ahmed, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Siraj, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Sen, Umran Malik
