Mohammad Shami’s exclusion from the T20 World Cup squad has raised many eyebrows. The fast bowler was a regular member of the team till ICCT20 World Cup 2021 but was absent since then. The BCCI has named Harshal Patel and Arsdeep Singh as the other two fast bowlers as the squad includes the return of yorker specialist Jasprit Bumrah, who was ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 due to injury.
The Indian cricket team will be roaring to prove that their team can also shine in ICC competitions. As many experts believe that the team loses its importance in ICC events. BCCI will be very much aware of the fact of defeat in ICCT20 World Cup 2021 where they were defeated by Pakistan and New Zealand.
Chris Srikanth on Mohammed Shami
Chris Srikanth, the former chief selector and legendary cricketer was quite upset over the speedster’s absence. Mohammed Shami should have been there. You are playing in Australia. Shami can get a bounce in Australia, he has high arm action. He can move the ball away from the left hand and into the right hand. He can get 2-3 wickets in the first 3 overs.
“Why wasn’t it picked up? You have good Jasprit Bumrah, Arsdeep Singh, and Harshal Patel. As far as I am concerned, the fourth medium pacer should be Mohammad Shami. He has always done very well in Australia.Srikanth told Star Sports on Monday.
“How can you say Syrian is not in the scheme of things. He is a very good bowler. Check out his IPL records. Brilliant, he took early wickets. You need early hits, right? Who will give it to you?” Srikanth said.
Mohammed Shami’s exclusion is a puzzle
The fast bowler has been a regular feature for the Indian cricket team in the ODI and Test formats. The fast bowler has shown that he has immense experience and we should not forget that he has been around the Indian cricket team since 2013. The bowler knows how to fox the batsman with variations and has a good seam too.
The BCCI will hope that this decision does not make any difference. It will be interesting to see which bowler plays the role in the death overs as we have seen that both Harshal and Arsdeep have the ability to restrict the opposition. Harshal Patel will be the preferred choice as he has good cutters and can confuse the batsman. The management will hope that the team clicks this time and avoids humiliation.
