Friday (June 23) was a very important day for Indian cricket. Because, after losing the WTC final, the Indian team will go on the West Indies tour. Ahead of the tour, India announced its squad for Tests and ODIs on Friday. Many experienced players have been dropped from this team. It also includes the name of Mohammed Shami. Shami has bowled brilliantly in recent times, yet his absence from the Test and ODI squads has left fans baffled. Now there is a big update regarding Shami’s absence from the series against West Indies.
Why Shami out of West Indies tour?
In fact, Mohammad Shami has been rested. Shami has been rested for both Tests and ODIs after nearly three months of busy competitive cricket. In fact, there is also the ODI World Cup 2023 (ODI World Cup 2023) tournament at the end of the year. Meanwhile, Shami has been rested and asked to be ready for the upcoming big tournament.
Shami has played 8 ODIs in the year 2023 so far. During this time he has taken a total of 10 wickets at an average of 30. Also, since 2022 he has taken 14 wickets in 11 ODIs at an average of 29.78 and an economy rate of 5.41. Shami is currently India’s most experienced fast bowler in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah.
Also, Deepak Chahar has also not been included in the squad for the series against West Indies. Maybe Chahar can get a chance for the T20 series. Chahar has performed brilliantly for the Chennai Super Kings team in the IPL 2023 season. He took 13 wickets at an economy rate of 8.73 in 10 matches in IPL 2023. Chahar has so far played 8 ODIs since the start of 2022. Also, it has taken 10 wickets. Bowlers like Mukesh Kumar, Umran Malik and Jaydev Unadkat who have less ODI experience than Chahar have been included. In fact, the selectors have dropped Umesh Yadav from the team. Also, fast bowler Mukesh Kumar has been given a chance in the main team. (why was pacer mohammad shami not picked indias odi squad for west indies)
