Keeping Mohammad shami on reserve bench is difficult..!?
Senior pacer Mohammad shami has been named in the squad selected for the ODI world cup 2023 tournament. But Mohammad shami, who has been away from cricket for a few months, has played only one match in the Asia Cup 2023 tournament. Mohammad shami replaced jasprit bumrah in the match against nepal after he went home due to personal reasons.
shami, who bowled 7 overs in that match, scored 29 runs and took a wicket. Mohammad shami did not play the group match against pakistan earlier. After that, he was limited to the reserve bench in the Super 4 matches against pakistan and Sri Lanka. We are reviewing Jasprit Bumrah's fitness from NCA. He needs a lot of match practice ahead of the ODI world cup tournament. That's why we want to play Bumran in all the matches. Team india has four quality bowlers. Only three players can play in the final team. It is very difficult to keep a player like mohammed shami on the bench. But any team likes to have the best options in hand. Mohammad Shami's experience and the achievements he has brought to the indian team are priceless. That's a tough thing to tell a player when you're putting him on the bench.
