“Not In The Plans…”: Former India Pacer’s huge statement on Mohammed Shami’s T20 World Cup chances
With the T20 World Cup ready to be held later this year in Australia, Team India faces a confusion regarding selection with just a few games left before the start of the tournament. While the management has given several newcomers an opportunity to impress in the ongoing T20I series against South Africa, it is still unclear whether veteran pacer Mohammed Shami will make the cut to the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup. Former India pacer Ashish Nehra said that although Shami might not play in the T20 World Cup in Australia, the managers should “definitely” consider Shami for next year’s ODI World Cup at home.
“It seems like he is not in the plans at the moment (for T20 World Cup). But, if the management needs Shami, we all know his abilities as a bowler. I can understand if he doesn’t play the T20 World Cup. He will continue to play Test cricket, and even if you want to give chance to young players, they should definitely consider him for the the 50-over World Cup next year,” Nehra said.
