Among the other nominal names, Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel are also back in the squad. Shami finds himself in the reserves alongside Ravi Bishnoi and Shreyas Iyer

Mohammed Shami was not a part of India’s Asia Cup Squad. His exclusion became the subject of huge debate as India were eliminated from the tournament after losing to Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 stage.  Shami who has made a return to the side played his last T20I against Namibia in the T20 World Cup 2021. Thus he is back in the T20I squad after almost a year.
