Mohammad Shami definitely should have been in the team, Srikkanth reacted after the squad announcement of T20 World Cup 2022

Xtra Time Web Desk: Amidst the uncertainty about Jasprit Bumrah’s unavailabity for the upcoming T20 World Cup, there is good news for Indian fans and team management. Star pacer Mohammed Shami has fully recovered after testing Covid-19 positive and has started bowling at the nets.

Shami posted a video of his bowling practice on Saturday. The 32-year-old is one of the stand-by for Indian cricket team for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022.

The fast bowler from Moradabad has been missing from India’s T20 squad for the last 10 months. He last played in the T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE. He was expected to make a return to the shortest format ahead of the World Cup during the T20 series against Australia and South Africa.

However, as luck would have it, he tested Covid-19 positive just before the T20I series against Australia and was ruled out of both the series. He has tested negative for Covid now and will need to pass the BCCI-mandated cardiovascular test to be eligible.

With Jasprit Bumrah injured, Mohammad Shami is set to be added to India’s 15-member squad. BCCI can make changes to the squad irrespective of injury by October 9. They have another six days to make last-minute changes until October 15 if ICC grants permission.
