Indian Team for ICC T20 World Cup: Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel, who were still unable to play due to injury, are now fit and have made their place. Another key bowler who was to be included in a team, Shami has been kept on standby mode for now. Since this World Cup is to be held in Australia, then Shami could have been a good choice keeping in mind the pitch there.
The team looks quite balanced with Bumrah and Harshal coming into the team. It remains to be seen how it performs. Due to the failure of Shami and Sanju Samson to make it to Team 15, they are also becoming a lot of trend on Twitter.
“If I were the chairman of the selection committee, Shami would definitely be in the team. We are playing in Australia, that guy has got real action, that guy has got bounce, he can spare the moment and that Can take early wickets, so I would have probably got Shami instead of Harshal Patel.
Yes, Harshal Patel is a good bowler, no doubt about it, but Mohammed Shami is the right man, I mean he can’t plan things, he is only for test cricket or one-day cricket but we are playing in Australia. That guy has done well in the last IPL so Shami should be on my team. – Former India captain and former chairman of selection committee Krishnamachari Srikkanth say.
Mohammed Azharuddin said!
After the All-India Senior Selection Committee picked India’s squads for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, former India cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin was surprised and he tweeted, “Surprised at the omission of Shreyas Iyer and Md. Shami from the main squad.”
