Mohammad Shami out of ODI series against Bangladesh, this star player’s entry in the team
Team India has suffered a major setback before the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh. According to the news agency PTI, experienced fast bowler Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of this ODI series due to injury. Shami had this injury in his hand. And Fast Bowler Umran Malik replaced him in ODI squad.
India has to play three ODIs and two Test matches on Bangladesh tour. The ODI series is starting from December 4 i.e. Sunday itself. Mohammed Shami was part of both the ODI and Test teams and was set to lead the pace attack in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah. But due to injury, he did not fly to Bangladesh with the rest of the Indian team on 1 December.
Mohammed Shami will report in NCA
A source in the BCCI, who is aware of the whole matter, said, ‘Mohammad Shami has suffered an injury in his hand which started after resuming training after the T20 World Cup in Australia. He has been asked to report to the NCA and did not travel with the team on December 1.
After the T20 World Cup 2022, senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, including Shami, were given a break for the New Zealand tour. Four fast bowlers – Mohammad Siraj, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and youngster Kuldeep Sen are already in the Indian squad. In such a situation, there is little possibility that BCCI will announce Shami’s replacement.

Mohammed Shami Can also be out of test series
However, if Shami’s injury becomes serious, then he will not be able to take part in the two-match Test series starting on 14 December. The source said, “Shami’s absence from the three ODIs is certainly a factor, but the bigger concern is the Test series where he has to lead the attack in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah.” The Indian team is currently in Mirpur where the Indian players practiced a lot on Friday.
