2 min read

Mohammed Shami, a prominent fast bowler for India, had successful surgery in London a few weeks ago to treat an ankle ailment that had been bothering him for the whole 2023 ODI World Cup. The speedster will thus be unable to participate in the next Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 and will also be absent from the crucial T20 World Cup 2024, which is set to begin play on June 1 in the West Indies and the United States.

The fast bowler is back in India, according to BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) Secretary Jay Shah, who recently provided an update on Shami’s operation. Shah went on to provide an approximate time frame for Shami’s comeback, stating that it will probably happen during the home series vs Bangladesh. In September, Bangladesh will play three Twenty20 international matches and two Test matches in India.

After his operation, Shami has returned to India. Shami’s comeback is probably scheduled for the home series vs Bangladesh,” the Hindustan Times cited Shah as saying.

During the ODI World Cup 2023, Shami looked formidable when he replaced the injured Hardik Pandya in the match against New Zealand. After getting a wicket in his opening match of the competition, the cricketer from Uttar Pradesh went on a rampage that saw him top the leaderboard for most wickets taken.

After seven innings at an average of 10.7 and an economy of 5.26, Shami ended the event with 24 scalps and three fifers. In the tournament’s semi-final matchup with New Zealand, he bowled the best he had ever seen, going 7/57 to help India defeat the Kiwis by 70 runs and go to the final.

After being ruled out of the England series owing to right quadriceps soreness, wicketkeeper batsman KL Rahul has also started his recovery at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. The 31-year-old participated in the series’ opening match in Hyderabad, where he scored 86 and 22 while helping India lose by 28 runs.
