Mohammed Shami has been exceptional in Test cricket and one-day internationals, but the same can’t be said about his T20I career. However, he showed a massive improvement for Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League 2022.
His spells with the new ball played a crucial role in GT’s title win. Meanwhile, even this has failed to impress the selectors, and the veteran is no longer in consideration for India’s T20 squad. He has been informed about the end of his T20I career by the selection committee members.
Shami hasn’t featured for India in the shortest format since the T20 World Cup 2021.
“Shami isn’t in the plans for the T20Is. The focus is on young bowlers,” a selection committee member said.
Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel are the front runners to play for the Men in Blue in the Asia Cup 2022 and ICC T20 World Cup.
