Team India‘s strike fast bowler in the ongoing ICC World Cup of 2015 tournament, Mohammed Shami today was found taking a break from the training session as a part of the recovery and rejuvenation process after bowling at a full square in the second quarter final stage match against the minnow Bangladesh at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Australia last week.
While there were some controversies and whispers about the state of his otherwise injured knee, which has taken up a lot of hard work on the hard Australian grounds, but Team India’s media manager RN Baba has got it clarified that there are no such reasons for worry or anxiety as far as the Bengal pace bowler or his injury issues are concerned.
Mohammad Shami is one hundred percent fit and will be available for a selection procedure in the second semi final match against the host nation Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), RN Baba told Press Trust of India (PTI) today. When asked as to why Mohammad Shami neither played football nor did he bowl at the nets in the net practice session like other fast bowlers namely Mohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav, Baba quickly replied that Shami had desperately requested for a resting session for an extra day and his counting wish was fruitfully been granted by the team’s officials.
Shami, as records say, has taken seventeen wickets from just seven World Cup matches so far. However though, the reserve fast bowler of India Bhuvneshwar Kumar has bowled an extended session at the nets today as Team India practice hard to take on the co-hosting nation Australia in the second semi final match at the SCG on Thursday.
