Internet Desk: India’s pace spearhead Mohammed Shami will bolster Bengal pace attack in what promises to be a nail biting Vijay Hazare Trophy final against Tamil Nadu, at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Monday.

Shami, who played in the last league match for Bengal has been declared fit to play the final and has reportedly joined the team.

“Yes, the good news is that Mohammed Shami is available for the final match. He has joined the Bengal squad in the evening today,” a senior CAB official confirmed the development to the media on Sunday.

The selection committee chairman MSK Prasad and his colleagues Sarandeep Singh and Devang Gandhi (set to arrive tomorrow morning) wil like to check Shami’s fitness as they decide on the Deodhar Trophy teams as well as keeping IPL in mind.

Even Delhi Daredevils team officials will be keenly watching Shami’s performance at the feroz Shah Kotla. Shami was a part of the team that won Hazare Trophy back in 2012 and his performance in that tournament brought him into national reckoning.

The Bengal team wanted to keep Shami’s presence under wraps as the Tamil Nadu team would not have apprehended that he would be available for the final match.

Shami in all probability will replace right-arm slinger Sayan Ghosh in the line-up.
