IND vs AUS LIVE: Mohammed Shami Covid: Bad luck has struck Mohammed Shami just before he was supposed to make his India comeback in T20Is. He will miss the 3-match series against Australia after testing positive for Covid-19. He was supposed to join the team in Mohali on Saturday but he has been ruled out. India’s series against Australia will begin on September 20 in Mohali. Follow India vs Australia LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN. 

As India’s short series against Australia ends on September 25, there is not enough time for him to recover and join the squad. Hence, he will miss the series completely. However, he is expected to return for the T20 series against South Africa starting September 28. But it will have to depend on his recovery.

For the time being, he will be in a 7-day isolation at his home. Once he returns two negative Covid-19 tests, he will have to pass a mandatory cardiovascular test in order to be eligible for selection again. After a 10-month absence, Shami was named in the T20 World Cup squad as a standby. The 6 T20Is against Australia and South Africa were crucial for him to get the rhythm back.

Meanwhile, Team India will have their all four standby players travelling to Australia for the T20 World Cup. That means Mohammed Shami, Deepak Chahar, Ravi Bishnoi and Shreyas Iyer will all be available for team management during the warm-up games. While it is not a norm for teams to take standby players, BCCI has decided to keep them ready in case of any injury at any point in time. The Rohit Sharma-led team will leave for Australia on October 6.

But with Mohammed Shami testing positive, his comeback trail will be cut short to just 3 games. Shami will have to make most of the three matches if he recovers on time. Else, he can say goodbye to his T20 WC aspirations. Shami hasn’t played any T20 matches since IPL 2022.

India Squad for Australia T20Is: Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (WK), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Hardik Pandya, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah.
