Ind vs SA: The playing of fast bowler Mohammed Shami for the three-match T20 series against South Africa is not considered fixed. Mo. Shami had tested positive for COVID-19 just ahead of the three-match T20I series against Australia and is yet to recover fully. In such a situation, in place of Shami, another fast bowler Umran Malik has been asked to be ready. So if Mo. If Shami is out of this tournament, then Umran Malik will join the Indian team in his place
Not only this, Deepak Hooda was out of this T20 series and Shreyas Iyer was included in his place. Apart from this, Team India all-rounder Hardik Pandya has also been rested for the three-match T20 series against South Africa and Shahbaz Ahmed has been replaced in the team. At the same time, Umesh Yadav will remain in the team for this T20 series.
Let me tell you that Mr. Shami has been selected as a reserve bowler in Team India for the T20 World Cup 2022. The Indian selectors took this decision in view of Australia’s condition. At the same time, before going to play the World Cup, the team management believed that Shami should be given match practice and for this he should be given the Indian team for the three-match T20 series against Australia and the same series against South Africa. Was given a place in the team. After this, Shami became covid-19 positive just before the three-match T20 series against Australia and had to be ruled out of this series.
The first match of the series will be played on Wednesday, but Shami has not been able to fully recover yet, so suspense remains on his playing. Now if Shami is not able to play in this series, then Umran Malik can be included in the Indian team in his place. Talking about Umran Malik, he played his last T20 match for India on 10 July 2022 against England in Nottingham. After that he was out of the team and he was neither given a chance to play in the Asia Cup 2022 nor was he included in the team for the T20 series played against Australia. If Shami does not play now, he may return to the T20 team. Umran has taken 2 wickets in the 3 T20 matches he has played for India so far.
