Mohammed Shami To Replace Bumrah For World Cup
The Indian team is leaving no stone unturned in preparing for the T20 World Cup. The entire team has reached Australia except for Jasprit Bumrah. Jasprit, who was out of the World Cup due to a back injury, is yet to be replaced. It is being said that one player between Mohammed Shami and Mohammad Siraj will replace Bumrah.
When we spoke to the BCCI official on this issue, he said on the condition of anonymity that, ‘Mohammed Shami will replace Jasprit Bumrah in the World Cup. He has been sent to the NCA (National Cricket Academy). After passing the fitness test there, he will leave for Australia.
Shami to replace Bumrah in T20 World Cup
Apart from Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj will also be part of the team in the World Cup. He will remain as a reserve player. Siraj has bowled brilliantly in the ongoing series against South Africa. It is becoming difficult for the batsmen to score runs against him in the death overs.
At the same time, Deepak Chahar has been out of the team due to an injury. In such a situation, if a fast bowler gets injured in the World Cup, then Siraj will be the best option.
The team has been bowling very poorly in the death overs since the Asia Cup itself. The team’s experienced bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is proving very expensive in the 18th and 19th overs. In such a situation, it was expected that with the arrival of Bumrah, this problem of the team would end, but due to injury, this star player was out of the tournament itself. In such a situation, Shami’s experience will come in handy.
Haven’t played T20 World Cup after 2021
Mohammed Shami last played in the T20 format during the T20 World Cup last year against Namibia. This year in the IPL, this player performed brilliantly and led his team to the final and also won. Australia’s pitch seams and bounces. So Shami can bowl well there.
