Shami’s Skills Made It Difficult For India Team Bosses

Arun said Mohammed Shami caused a good headache for India team bosses

India bowling coach Bharat Arun said fast bowler Mohammed Shami made it difficult for the team’s bosses to decide if they will allow him to continue playing in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup when bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar comes back.

Kumar had to miss a few World Cup games when he injured his hamstring during their match against Pakistan on June 16. Shami temporarily replaced him in their Afghanistan match on June 22 where he took four wickets.

“Bhuvneshwar’s injury is not of any great concern. It is just a niggle, which we didn’t want to take a chance on,” said Arun in an interview on Wednesday. “And it was also an opportunity for us to plug Shami into the games. But the fact he’s done exceptionally well all goes well for us. It’s an embarrassment of riches.”

“And we would take a call as per the conditions, but Bhuvi (Kumar) has done exceptionally well, so I think it’s a pretty good headache to have.”

When asked about their upcoming match against West Indies, the coach said that Windies’ batsmen have their strengths.

“They (Windies batsmen) do have their strengths. And also it’s a big challenge for the bowlers too—especially when they come after you,” stated Arun. “But whenever batsmen come after you, if you’re willing to look at it deeply, there is a chance in it for the bowlers, and I think that’s what the bowlers would be looking to do.”

India will be playing against West Indies today at Old Trafford Cricket Ground. The Men in Blue currently have -333 odds to win the match while Windies have +270 odds.
