Indian bowler Mohammed Shami sent an emotional statement online after being forced to sit out the first two games of the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh owing to a shoulder ailment. Shami, who was granted a vacation from the New Zealand trip, was expected to lead India’s pace attack in both the ODIs and Tests against Bangladesh. But while practicing, the seasoned pacer hurt his right shoulder. He was unable to do anything, not even go to Dhaka with the Indian squad. In the India ODI lineup, Umran Malik replaced Shami.

“In general, being hurt teaches you to appreciate every second. I’ve had many injuries during my career. It is insulting. It gives you perspective. Whenever I’ve been hurt, regardless of how often, I’ve always come back stronger “Shami shared pictures of his medical treatment for him.

The right-arm pacer, who competes for Bengal on the domestic circuit, has had a lot of ailments throughout his ten-year career.

“Fast bowler Mohd Shami injured his shoulder during practice before the ODI series against Bangladesh. While he is being cared for by the BCCI Medical Team at the NCA, Bengaluru, he won’t be able to take part in the three-match series. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has chosen Umran Malik to take Shami’s spot “In a press release, Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, made a statement. Shami’s condition hasn’t been fully determined yet.

Umran Malik is one of the fastest bowlers in all of cricket. For his first ODI, he recently participated in two matches and claimed two wickets in New Zealand. Shami tweeted a picture of himself in a hospital getting treatment for his bowling shoulder, but he later deleted it and then reposted it.

Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik, and Kuldeep Sen will make up the pace attack for the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh.

The 33-year-old Shami is a crucial part of India’s ODI strategy heading into the 2018 World Cup.

For India to be in the running for the forthcoming World Test Championship final at the Oval in June, captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid would be concerned if the Bengal speedster missed the Test series.
