Mohammed Shami, in all likelihood, will play fourth and the final Test against Australia – scheduled to take place in Dharamsala from February 25. Sources close to selectors revealed that Shami, who made a return to competitive cricket with the List A game against Gujarat on March 6, will travel with the team to Dharamsala for the final Test.

The 26-year-old fast bowler was with the Indian team during the Ranchi Test but later went to Delhi for Vijay Hazare Trophy final against Tamil Nadu. The Bengal lad ended with the figures of 4/26 in the presence of all three national selectors, who were keeping a close eye on his performance.

Mohammed Shami suffered a sore knee in the Tests against England last year and was ruled out of the final two games (of the series) at Mumbai and Chennai. He was further sidelined for the limited-overs series as well and was not selected for the first two Tests against Australia.

After proving his fitness, Shami played a Vijay Hazare Trophy game against Gujarat on March 6 but still didn’t get the nod for the third Test.

The final match of the Border-Gavaskar series will be played from March 25 at Dharamsala.
