Windrawwin predictions today : As Jasprit Bumrah’s substitute, Mohammad Shami arrives in Australia and will join the squad for a practise match against Western Australia.

Both good and bad news must be handled by Team India. After passing his fitness test, Mohammad Shami is qualified to replace Jasprit Bumrah. Deepak Chahar won’t likely make it to the T20 World Cup, though. He’s still at the NCA, and it’s doubtful he’ll be in shape by October 15. By this date, BCCI must deliver the final roster to the ICC. In the meantime, Mohammed Siraj & Shardul Thakur will accompany Shami to Australia as back-ups rather than Chahar.

The ICC’s deadline for naming substitutes has passed.

With an unique exception from the ICC, BCCI might still nominate a successor before October 15.

Mohammad Shami will shortly be announced as Jasprit Bumrah’s replacement by the BCCI Selectors.

Mohammad Shami passed the NCA’s fitness examination.

Shardul Thakur was called up as a reserve when Deepak Chahar was declared ineligible.

Mohammed Siraj, who impressed against South Africa, will join the reserves.

The group departed late on Wednesday for Australia.

On October 12, Shami, Siraj, and Shardul Thakur departed for Australia. They will meet the team in Brisbane. Shreyas Iyer and Ravi Bishnoi, who are reserves, are still in India and will participate in SMAT20.

On October 13, Western Australia will face India in Perth; however, on October 14, the match will travel to Brisbane. India’s home venue for T20 World Cup warm-up matches against Australia and New Zealand will be the Gabba.

Shiami is well and ready to travel. He had several productive sessions. He lacks match experience, therefore we must rely on the two exhibition games to get him back to full strength. He has a significant hurdle, but he is a seasoned bowler and is aware of what is required. Deepak continues to be unfit. So, we can’t decide whether to include him just yet. In a day or two, the physios will make a decision.

After the bowlers’ disappointing performance in the Asia Cup, Shami was added to the Indian squad. The seasoned pacer was also included for the T20 World Cup squad. Shami was regrettably unable to participate in the India versus. Australia series because to Covid-19. He was tested negative, but he still hasn’t been permitted to return to the manifold.

Given that the player often needs some time following Covid to reach their optimum fitness, this is expected. It is now a developing problem. But it’s not only about his physical condition; Shami hasn’t played for India in the shorter format since November 2021. His lack of foreign competition is a serious worry when you factor in the fitness aspect.

The fitness test will be crucial at this point in the process. There is no denying either player’s talent or skill level, but now days it goes beyond just their bowling prowess. It involves keeping fit for a longer length of time and performing at the top of their game.

According to the ICC GUIDELINES, competing teams had until October 9 to make changes to their roster, even if none of their players were injured. They would have to get ICC’s approval to make any modifications beyond the deadline. A committee will have to approve the same.

Deepak Chahar FITNESS TEST: It’s vital to point out that Chahar is the newest participant at NCA and one of the backups for the World Cup. Before the ODI series between India and the South, he had a back ailment. His chances of succeeding Bumrah are now in jeopardy because of it.

“Deepak is not in a position for fitness test. He will be monitored while he is at the NCA. Rest is prescribed for him. Shami is making a good recovery and ought to be ready for the World Cup. Jasprit’s replacement will be revealed shortly.

Mohammed Siraj is anticipated to join Bishnoi and Iyer in the reserves as he is once again sidelined by back issues.


  • Brings in his experience
  • Known for his wicket-taking ability
  • Has that skiddy factor which can be an asset in Australia
  • Can prove to dangerous bowler with the new ball


  • If there is anything in the pitch, he makes full use of it
  • He can bowl at the death as well as with the new ball
  • Is a decent lower-order batter, can contribute important runs at the end

Rahul Dravid, the head coach, is worried about Bumrah’s successor even though he is now in Australia. With Bumrah gone, the Indian bowlers are missing in potency in the bowling department, giving it even more relevance.

Even celebrities like Harshal Patel and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have not been performing at their best. Even worse has been how they have bowled in the last moments. Due to their recent performance, India is placing all of its expectations in the youthful Arshdeep Singh.
