Mohammed Shami not playing

In the much-anticipated Asia Cup Super Four clash between India and Pakistan, cricket enthusiasts were keen to see the talented pacer Mohammed Shami in action. However, fans were taken by surprise when it was revealed that Shami would not be taking the field.

Why is Mohammed Shami Not Playing IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023 Super Four Match?

Mohammed Shami absence is due to the return of Jasprit Bumrah, who had been on paternity leave following the birth of his child. Shardul Thakur, primarily recognized as a fast bowler, earned his place in the playing XI due to his batting skills. And, the third seamer is Mohammad Siraj.

Rohit Sharma at toss: Looking to bat first. There will be a challenge upfront, but the way we guys batted last time around gives us confidence. Every game is important for us, but one thing at a time to focus on. (On rain delays) That’s the nature of the sport, it gave us good time to prepare and now we’ll look to play well. Two changes – Bumrah is back and one forced change, Shreyas Iyer just got a back spasm so KL Rahul comes in for him.
