Indian Pacer Mohammed Shami To Miss ICC T20 World Cup 2024

Mumbai: Mohammed Shami, who hasn’t played for his country since the ODI World Cup last year because of an ankle ailment, will probably make his return in the home series against Bangladesh, which starts in September, according to BCCI secretary Jay Shah.

This implies that the speedster will not be able to compete in the T20 World Cup, which will be held in the USA and the West Indies starting in June.

“Shami is back in India after his surgery. Shami will probably make his comeback for the home series versus Bangladesh. Shah stated, “KL Rahul needed an injection. He is at the NCA and has started rehab.”

When the Indian seamer revealed that he had undergone heel surgery two weeks prior, even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished the seamen a swift recovery.

“Wishing you a speedy recovery and good health. I’m confident you’ll overcome this injury with the courage that is so integral to you,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote on X.

In a reply post for the PM on X, Shami had written, “It was such a wonderful surprise to receive a personal note from Prime Minister Narendra Modi sir wishing me a speedy recovery. His kindness and thoughtfulness truly mean a lot to me. Thank you so much Modi sir, for your well wishes and support during this time. I will continue to work hard towards my recovery, Thank you all for your continued wish, love and support.”

The bowler, who finished with 24 wickets in the 2023 World Cup, will not play in the IPL this year and was not available for the five-match Test series against England due to Achilles tendon surgery last month.
