Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India pacer Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the upcoming three match ODI series against Bangladesh due to a hand injury. Shami suffered the injury during a training session after he returned from T20 World Cup in Australia. He did not travel with the Indian team to Bangladesh. He is also doubtful for the test series starting in Chittagong from December 14.
“Mohammed Shami has suffered a hand injury that he sustained after resuming training post T20 World Cup in Australia. He has been asked to report at the NCA and has not travelled with the team on December 1,” a senior BCCI source privy to development told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
The extent of Shami’s injury is not known yet. The 33-year-old fast bowler is an integral part of India’s ODI scheme of things, going into the World Cup next year in India.
With Jasprit Bumrah still not fit and now Shami also doubtful for test series, it will definitely be a setback for the Indian team
Shami has taken 216 wickets in Test cricket from 60 matches.
