Live cricket telegram channel : According to reports, the IPL 2022 would likely as “trial” for Mohammed Shami in order him considered the T20 World Cup.

Mohammed Shami, an Indian fast bowler, is not a first-choice speed bowler in the shortest version of the game. According to sources, selectors may consider him for the T20 World Cup this year in Australia based on his performance in the next IPL 2022 season.

Shami hasn’t featured for India in a white-ball match since the T20 World Cup in the UAE last year. He has only appeared in Test matches, suggesting that he is unlikely to be called up to the white-ball squad on a regular basis.

“Sustaining all-format bowlers for all circumstances is challenging.” Only Jasprit Bumrah has excelled in all three forms. This team’s management believes in giving all of the players a clear image. Shami will undoubtedly be contacted, according to a BCCI source reported by TOI.

Shami’s T20I record, in particular, does not inspire confidence. He has 17 T20I appearances under his belt and a poor economy of 9.54. With players like Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar putting in strong performances, Shami will have to come up with something special of his own.

“In ODIs, he’s in a lot better position. “However, he realises that this IPL would be a form of trial for him to be considered for the T20 World Cup,” the source said.

“With Shardul and Deepak, the batting line-up is lengthened, allowing the top order to go hard from the start.” In Test cricket, Shami is a great asset. “The squad would want him to be fresh for the remainder of the World Test Championship,” the insider concluded.

At the IPL 2022 super auction, Shami drew a lot of attention before ultimately going to Gujarat Titans (GT) for a winning price of INR 6.25 crores.
