KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Mohammed Shami has not played for India since the ODI World Cup final in 2023 against Australia.
  • He underwent an Achilles tendon surgery in February.
  • In what is good news for Team India, the star fast bowler has resumed bowling and is likely to return soon.
India have been missing the services of Mohammed Shami ever since his magical tournament in the ODI World Cup 2023. This is because the star fast bowler had suffered an injury on his heel, and underwent an Achilles tendon surgery back in February. He last played for India back in the ODI World Cup final on November 19 against Australia, and has since missed all matches for India and even in the IPL 2024. Now, it looks like there finally is some clarity on when the injured star will return.
According to a report by News18, Mohammed Shami has resumed bowling at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Benglauru. He is being monitored by Head of Sports Science and Medicine at NCA, Dr Nitin Patel and Strength & Conditioning coach Rajinikanth at Bengaluru.
Mohammed Shami's childhood coach Badruddin said that Mohammed SHami has started bowling not with full run up or full tilt and has started releasing the balls without any discomfort in the nets. This is a good sign for Shami.
“Shami has started bowling. Not with full run-up or full tilt but has started releasing the ball without any discomfort in the nets. This is a good sign because bowling activity has begun,” Badruddin said.
Mohammed Shami has currently taken a break and returned home, but will soon resume his rehabilitation in Bengaluru.
India are all set to host Bangladesh for a series consisting of three T20Is and three Test matches in September-October later this year. Jay Shah, in March said that, they are targetting this Test Series for Shami's return. However, there are many stakeholders who do not want him to play directly in the Tests and hence he might make his comeback in the shorter format first.
A source close to Mohammed Shami said that he will be back in India colours very soon, but the full clarity will come when he resumes bowling at full tilt.
“No doubt he will be back in India colours very soon. You would have seen the progress he has been making via the social media videos and the post. He is working very hard but more clarity will come when bowling resumes at full tilt and how the body reacts after that,” the source said.
The source also said that Shami will be a crucial player for India in the Test Series against Australia. Hence, he will be eased into the side by playing T20Is and ODIs first.
“There is a very important away tour of Australia this year where India play five Tests. Mohammed Shami is going to be a very crucial player for the side during that assignment and a very cautious approach is going to be followed. NCA has used T20I and ODIs for players returning from long injury lay-offs in the past and the route is likely to be followed with Shami too," he added.
