One of India’s all-time legendary pacers, Mohammed Shami, has also been left out of India’s squad for Asia Cup 2022. With his exclusion from India’s T20I setup after the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, it was writings on the wall that Shami’s T20I career will take a hit and that’s what has happened.

However, the reasoning behind it from the selectors and team management hasn’t been justifiable. Shami’s T20I records might not speak a great deal for him but it should be remembered that he hasn’t been given enough opportunities since his revival in the international circuit, especially in the T20 format.

He did reasonably well for the Gujarat Titans in this year’s IPL campaign and was used very effectively by his skipper Hardik Pandya who used him in such a manner that he got wickets in the initial overs and also in the middle overs for his team in the IPL. Thus, the selectors could have persisted a bit more with Shami as is the case with other Great players and then taken a call on his role.
