Ahead of their third pool match in Group-B against UAE on Saturday, Team India has an injury problem as one of their premier bowlers Mohammed Shami Ahmed has been ruled out of the match.

After the practice session on Wednesday at Perth, Mohammed Shami had reportedly picked up an injury. The team management did not make any official statement or media release regarding the injury.

It is also reported that the star pacer along with team physio, Nitin Patel and an ICC official has visited a local X-Ray and Radiology center at 9:00(local time). They spent nearly two hours at the X-Ray centre and returned to the team hotel.

That’s just a minor injury and there’s nothing to worry about,” a team source confirmed to ABP News. Shami has looked completely different in World Cup after looking paltry in the Tri-series.

In the Tri-series, Shami managed only two wickets in three games at an average of 49 and a strike-rate of 63.5 where as in the World Cup, he has six wickets at an average of 10.83 and a strike-rate of 17 in just 2 games so far . His economy rate has dropped from 4.62 to 3.82.

The team management played it safe by saying, “The team physio is taking a stock of things, and there’s no worry”. 

“Even if it’s a small injury, there are chances of it getting aggravated. These are still early days in the tournament and one should not rush things,” said a BCCI official. Shami has a mild left knee problem and had an ultrasound guided injection yesterday for his long term management.
