India Squad T20 WC: Mohammed Shami T20 World Cup: After telling Mohammed Shami that he is not needed in T20s, the selectors decided to do a U-turn on him. Yes, Shami is back in contention for the T20 World Cup. Injuries to Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah have changed the selectors’ minds on Shami. Sources told InsideSport that Shami could be included in the home T20Is against Australia and South Africa next month: Follow T20 World Cup 2022 Live and Asia Cup 2022 Live Updates on InsideSport.IN.

Bumrah’s injury is serious and Harshal Patel is also suffering from a rib injury. Mohammed Shami will be the only experienced pacer if he is left out of the T20 World Cup. That is why Shami may be called up.

Shami played his last T20 for India in the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. Since then he has been neglected. The team management preferred to try emerging pacers like Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel and Avesh Khan.

“Look, Shami is not getting any younger and that’s why we have to handle his workload as well. This is why he was informed about T20 (not selection). But if our two main pacers are injured, then we have to fall back on someone reliable in Australia. Shami understands the condition better than anyone and can be a great asset. He will be given a final call at the next stage.” A member of the selection committee told InsideSport.

India Squad T20 WC: Why Mohammed Shami may be called up?

  • Jasprit Bumrah has repeatedly injured his back and is running against time.
  • Bumrah has exactly two months to be 100% but the last time he injured his back, he had to spend five months on the sidelines.
  • While Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the two options, India will need an experienced seamer in Australia.
  • Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan are all relatively inexperienced in international cricket and in Australia.
  • That is why Mohammad Shami may be called up.
  • Shami has been overlooked despite a fine show in IPL 2022.
  • The veteran pacer claimed 20 wickets in 16 matches, leading Gujarat Titans to their maiden IPL title on debut.
  • Former selectors and players have already said they are surprised by Shami’s omission.

“It’s certainly surprising not to have Shami in the team, but I think there might have been injury problems or he must have been given a break. He is definitely an important part of this team. Wherever he has been given an opportunity, he has done well. I am sure he will be an integral part of India’s T20 World Cup team. I’m sure he has a plan for things,” former chief selector MSK Prasad told mid-day.

However, the selectors and BCCI may have second thoughts on Shami amid the injury crisis. Bumrah is likely to be included in the T20 World Cup squad as the BCCI has to submit the squad by September 15. However, his final inclusion will be subject to fitness.

With both Bumrah and Harshal Patel doubtful, the selectors may call up Mohammed Shami for the T20s. The selectors and team management informed Shami that he would not be considered for India’s T20s. Shami was not informed of the plan to withdraw Bumrah and Harshal as the selectors wanted to wait and see on their condition.

“It is too early to panic. Both Bumrah and Harshal are under the observation of the medical team. We have a great pace bowling line-up. In Shami’s case there is no doubt that he can be useful in Australia but we have to manage his workload as well. If the team management believes that he will be needed, we will decide on that later. Nothing to worry about for now.” Member of the selection committee.
