Ravi Shastri came down hard on the national selection committee for ignoring Mohammed Shami for the Asia Cup 2022.

Mohammed Shami was not considered for the Asia Cup 2022 despite his impressive bowling for champions Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League 2022. He was their best bowler in the opening overs, with regular wickets coming from him.

The likes of Gautam Gambhir, Wasim Akram and Sanjay Manjrekar couldn’t under the reason behind the logic. They also questioned the selection criteria when there was no Jasprit Bumrah in the squad due to a back injury.

“I don’t understand what they thought while picking up the side. Shami was sensational in IPL and was the best bowler in the powerplay overs. With no Bumrah in the team, he should have been a part of the travelling unit,” said Gambhir.

“Shami is one of the best Indian pacers and was in fantastic form in the Indian Premier League,” said Wasim Akram.

“Shami showed his class while playing for Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League, but he is still sitting out of the team,” said Sanjay Manjrekar.
