India T20 WC Squad: Mohammad Shami in T20 WC squad? In a matter of six to eight hours from now, the Indian team for the T20 World Cup in Australia will be announced. Most of the players pick themselves for the ICC event. But the selectors are set to discuss in length about Mohammed Shami – to pick him for Australia or not?

The team is set to be led by Rohit Sharma with KL Rahul as his deputy. The ICC event will be hosted by Australia next month.

Shami’s name might not have cropped up in the team’s selection, but a below par show by India in Asia Cup has forced the situation. As a result, the voices for his inclusion has only multiplied in the last fortnight. Ravi Shastri, Anshuman Gaekwad, Saba Karim and a host number of former players belong in that list.

But, the final call lies with the selectors and the team management. If they decide to take the pacer to Australia, it would also mean a change in stance. Shami has not been picked in the Indian T20 team for almost a year.

It clearly indicates that the team is also looking at young bowlers, who are coming up the ranks. There must be reasons for the same as well. Shami’s economical rate is a shocking 9.54 in 17 matches in the shorter format.

Having said that, experience is a must when it comes to big ticket events. Shami has that in abundance. He has played 60 Tests, 82 ODIs and 17 T20 matches for India in a career, spanning nine years so far.

Why Shami should be included?

  • The conditions in Australia suit his bowling
  • India needs such experience in events like World Cup
  • He is known to be a wicket taker for India
  • He has the much needed experience
  • He can be a dangerous bowler under light if he can get the ball to reverse

With the pitches in Australia, having Shami as an additional pacer makes sense. The bowler has knack of producing wickets, which is a strong requirement in the shorter format. Shami can be sharp, and can prove to be skiddy in Australian conditions.

Taking Shami to Australia might have been selectors number one plan when Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah looked doubtful. But then, recently both the players have been declared fit. It thus has made the entire team selection bit even more interesting.
