new Delhi: Team India’s senior fast bowler Mohammed Shami has started bowling ‘low intensity’ (slow pace) at the National Cricket Academy after recovering from a wrist fracture, which is expected to lead to the final of the series against England. Two Test matches may be available for selection.

A source aware of this told PTI on the condition of confidentiality, ‘Shami’s wrist is fine now. He will bowl slow at the net for the next few days. He has been advised to bowl around 18 balls with 50 to 60 percent effort in a day.
In such a situation, now the Indian fans hope that Shami will return soon.

Shami was injured in Adelaide
Shami (Mohammed Shami) received a short ball from Pat Cummins during India’s second innings in Adelaide on 19 December. This caused a hairline fracture in his wrist that forced him to retire. He was then eliminated from the Test series against Australia and had to return home for a rehabilitation program.
