“Mohammed Shami ruled out of IPL 2024”

Srinagar: Senior pacer Mohammad Shami has been ruled out of IPL 2024, as per PTI report quoting BCCI sources.

It will be a huve blow to Gujarat Titans to see their premier pacer being ruled out of the tournament.

Shami was the leader of the pace attack of the Gujarat Titans. This comes as a significant blow to the franchise, which has already lost to its captain Hardik Pandya.

Shami, who is not part of the ongoing Test series against England, last played for India in the ODI World Cup final against Australia in November.

“Shami was in London in last week of January to take special ankle injections and he was told that after three weeks, he can start light running and take it from thereon,” PTI quoted BCCI sources.

“But the injection hasn’t worked and now the only option left is surgery. He will shortly leave for UK for surgery. IPL seems out of question,” a senior BCCI source told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

The development raises a question mark about the injury rehabilitation management programme planned by the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for Shami.

Shami’s target now could be the marquee away series against Australia.

“Shami should have gone directly for surgery and that should have been NCA’s call. Just two months of rest and injections wouldn’t have worked well and that’s what has happened. He is an asset and the Indian team would need him in Australia,” the source said.
