New Delhi, December 3
Senior fast bowler Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the ODI series against Bangladesh, starting on Sunday, due to a shoulder injury and replaced by Umran Malik in India’s squad, the BCCI announced on Saturday.
It has been learnt that Shami had suffered the injury during a training session after he returned from Australia, where the Indian team made a semifinal exit from the T20 World Cup.
Shami could also miss the upcoming two-Test series, beginning in Chittagong from December 14.
“Fast bowler Mohammed Shami sustained a shoulder injury during a training session in the lead-up to the ODI series against Bangladesh. He is currently under the supervision of the BCCI Medical Team at the NCA, Bengaluru, and will not be able to take part in the three-match series. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Umran Malik as Shami’s replacement,” BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said in a press release.
The extent of Shami’s injury is not known yet.
Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik and Kuldeep Sen will form the pace attack for the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh.
The 33-year-old Shami is an integral part of India’s ODI scheme of things, going into the World Cup next year.
