Who will win today cricket match prediction : Mohammad Shami will take part in a fitness test at NCA this week before departing for the T20 World Cup.

Mohammad Shami’s fitness test for the India T20 World Cup squad will take place this week after he tested negative for the Covid-19 virus. While his departure with Team India was slated on October 6, that decision won’t be made until after he reports to NCA. He is now recuperating in Aligarh after overcoming Covid.

“Yes, Shami is making a good recovery. He has started practicing again lightly. He must, however, wait till he is fully fit. This week, he’ll submit a report to the NCA. He won’t be allowed to join the squad until he receives the all-clear from the medical staff.

Team India is in serious trouble as a result of Jasprit Bumrah’s almost certain absence from the T20 World Cup. The problem has become worse because to the current bowlers’ dismal performance in crucial innings. India lacks experience, therefore Shami fills that need. Unless Bumrah is entirely ruled out, he is the front-runner. He hasn’t participated in a T20 match since the IPL in 2022 and is now recuperating from Covid-19.

Shami may be requested to remain behind and join the World Cup team later, when the reserves go after the SA ODI series, even though Team India is scheduled to depart for Australia on October 6. On October 17 and 19, India will play two exhibition games versus Australia and New Zealand. On October 12, India will also compete against Western Australia in a warm-up game. The team management would like Shami to regain full match fitness before that.

“Shami’s lack of participation in games up to the T20 World Cup is definitely a worry. Hopefully, he is well enough to participate in the warm-ups. Changes to the team may be made now. Therefore, it wouldn’t be an issue. More information will become available if we get a report on Hooda. The squad, including the reserves, will stay the same for the time being.

All of the backup players will participate in the ODI series against South Africa, according to the selectors. Due of their restricted playing time, they would utilize the three ODIs to prepare completely for the T20 World Cup.

Mohammad Shami is technically not hurt, although he is still healing from Covid and is not now available. This is India’s injury dilemma before the World Cup.

  • Shami has tested negative for Covid, but in order to be eligible, he must pass the cardiovascular test required by the BCCI.
  • A complete medical report on Deepak Hooda’s back issue is anticipated.
  • Stress fracture in his back has forced Jasprit Bumrah to withdraw from the T20 World Cup.
  • Harshal Patel has not yet reached full speed after recovering from a rib ailment.
  • Deepak Chahar performed well in his first T20 match since his comeback against South Africa, but he hasn’t been given many chances.
  • Following a muscular injury, Umesh Yadav is not functioning at full capacity.
  • The squad’s most seasoned bowler, Mohammad Shami, is most likely to be selected for the 15-person roster.
  • Mohammed Siraj has been placed on reserve duty and will go to Australia with Team India.

India T20 World Cup squad: Rohit Sharma (capt), KL Rahul (vice-capt), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (WK), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Hardik Pandya, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh. Reserve players: Mohammed Shami, Shreyas Iyer, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Chahar.
