The India coach on his decision to bench Mohammed Shami: “It’s Not Easy To…”

Since Jasprit Bumrah’s return, Mohammed Shami hasn’t played often for India in ODI matches.

The return of Jasprit Bumrah has boosted India’s pace squad, and having four completely healthy fast bowlers going into the World Cup next month is encouraging, according to bowling coach Paras Mhambrey. After a protracted injury layoff, Bumrah donned the Indian jersey during the recent trip of Ireland. He also made an impression with his energy during the ongoing Asia Cup. “We have been keeping track of Bumrah’s progress through the NCA, and we are pleased with the report we received.

The fact that we now have four excellent bowlers is always a plus. Prior to Friday’s Super 4 match between Bangladesh and India, Mhambrey remarked, “The problem of plenty is usually beneficial.

Mohammed Shami was benched by the management because India’s preferred pace attack now centres around Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Hardik Pandya.

“Leaving someone like Shami is not a simple thing to do. His performance for the country and the experience he possesses are extraordinary. That debate (about dropping a player) is never simple, he said.

Even if it was a challenging decision, the player in question has been made aware of the team’s choice, according to Mhambrey.

“However, the players have demonstrated their confidence in us because of the way we approached the topic with them.

A few batsmen’s bowling abilities are being developed by the Indian squad, according to Mhambrey, so that they have more options available when needed.

In that plan, Tilak Varma plays a significant role.

I’ve collaborated with Tilak ever since he was in the U-19s. He has bowling skills, which we discovered while we were in South Africa. We continue to make progress.

This one over might become two overs if the captain gains confidence in his ability to bowl one over and deliver. But that depends on the situation and whether we need that extra bowler, he added.
