“I should be selected, If….” Mohammed Shami On The Upcoming T20 World Cup 2024

Mohammed Shami said if a player performs in the IPL 2024, then his name should be included in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024.

India’s pacer Mohammed Shami had a wonderful 2023, as the pacer performed exceptionally well in the World Cup 2023. Even after missing three initial matches for India, he ended up being the highest wicket taker of the tournament, scalping 24 wickets in just 7 matches he played. Mohammed Shami, since the end of the tournament, has been sidelined due to an injury he sustained during the tournament. Mohammed Shami is eagerly waiting for his return to the field, though there is still time as he is not included in the upcoming India-England five-match test series, probably to give him more time to recover fully.

Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj are also taking some time off, but they will be in the team against England. Mohammed Shami’s potential return to the field can happen during the IPL 2024, where he will play for the Gujarat Titans. The pacer has been an important asset for the franchise; in fact, he was the purple cap holder in the IPL 2023 for taking the most wickets in the league. The right-arm pacer took 28 wickets in the IPL 2023, and he feels that the IPL 2024 will play a key role in someone’s selection for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

“There’s still a lot of time. There’s an IPL before that. Whoever is playing well should be picked for the T20 World Cup. It’s important to be selecting the team basis the combination. If I’m performing well, I should be selected. Who will say no to the World Cup?”
