India T20 WC Squad: Mohd Shami Covid: Selectors have received some good news ahead of the T20 World Cup. Mohammad Shami has returned a negative Covid-19 test and has ended his isolation. Shami, a late draft in the T20 World Cup reserves, missed the Australia series and the South Africa series. His fate in the mega event was also doubtful. However, since he has tested negative, he will now appear for a mandatory cardiovascular test this week. Follow IND vs SA LIVE & T20 World Cup LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

However, despite testing negative, he is still not considered 100% fit. Only when he passes the test, he will be eligible for selection again. Shami shared the news of his testing negative on his social media handles.

Meanwhile, the BCCI can make changes to the squad irrespective of injury by October 9. They will have another six days to make last-minute changes until October 15 if ICC grants permission.

“Shami not playing any matches before T20 World Cup is actually a concern. Hopefully, he is fit and gets to play the warm-ups. We have time to make changes in the squad. So, it would not be a problem. Once we receive a report on Hooda, we will have more clarity. For now, the squad will remain the same including the reserves,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.

India T20 WC Squad: India’s injury crisis before World Cup:

  • Mohammad Shami is technically not injured but is still recovering from Covid and is currently unavailable.
  • Although Shami has tested negative for Covid, he will need to pass the BCCI-mandated cardiovascular test to be eligible.
  • Deepak Hooda has a back injury and a full medical report is awaited.
  • Jasprit Bumrah is still regaining rhythm after a back injury.
  • Harshal Patel is also returning from a rib injury and is yet to hit full tilt.
  • Deepak Chahar hasn’t been given a lot of opportunity since his return from a lengthy 6-month injury layoff.
  • Umesh Yadav is not at his 100 per cent following muscle injury.

Mohammad Shami was surprisingly recalled ahead of T20 World Cup. However, as fate would have it, he contracted Covid and could not join the squad for the Australia series. He is yet to recover and that means he will miss the South Africa series. While he had been practising after the England tour, he has not featured in any T20 matches for India since the T20 World Cup last year.

“It’s difficult to say when he will recover. He needs to clear the cardio-vascular test. At the moment, we are waiting for medical team’s clearance. Once he passes the test, he can join the squad,” the official said.
