‘Shami uncertain to play India’s upcoming Test series in South Africa’

New Delhi, Dec 14: Senior fast-bowler Mohammed Shami is uncertain to play in India’s upcoming Test series against South Africa due to an ankle injury, which means that it won’t be a surprise if he’s officially ruled out from the tour.

On November 30, while announcing the squad for the tour of South Africa, Shami was included for the Test series. But the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had said that Shami is currently undergoing medical treatment and his availability is subject to fitness.

A report in Cricbuzz on Thursday said Shami will not be travelling to South Africa with the rest of the players picked for the Tests. “The last batch of players, including skipper Rohit Sharma, is scheduled to leave for Johannesburg on Friday (December 15), but the 33-year-old veteran pacer will not be among them,” it added.
