HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nehra feels Shami is not part of current scheme of things for T20 World Cup
  • Shami last represented India in the shortest format against Namibia in the 2021
  • Shami is set to feature for India against England during the sixth and final Test

Former India pacer Ashish Nehra feels that Mohammed Shami is not part of the current scheme of things for the T20 World Cup but could be a lethal option for the Rohit Sharma-led side in next year’s ODI World Cup, which will take place in India.

Shami is set to feature for India against England during the sixth and final Test (July 1-5) which will conclude the Test series that took place last year. Notably, the 31-year-old pacer last represented India in the shortest format against Namibia in the 2021 T20 World Cup and since then, has failed to make it into the squad.

“Seems like he doesn’t feature in the current scheme of things for the T20 World Cup. But we all know about his abilities. Even if he doesn’t play in this year’s T20 World Cup, India will definitely consider him for the 2023 World Cup at home. We don’t have many ODIs this year and Shami is on a break at the moment after the IPL. India can play him in England for the 50-over games after the Test match,” Nehra told Cricbuzz.

Nehra said that India would want to play their best players, adding that Shami is definitely one of them.

“We don’t have many ODIs this year and Shami is on a break at the moment after IPL. India can play him in England for the 50-over games after the Test match. You will play three ODI games against a top-quality white-ball team like England, and you would definitely love to beat them. And for that, you need your best bowlers. I would definitely take Shami in that bracket,” he added.
