Mohammed Shami is missing from India’s lineup in South Africa: Dinesh Karthik

Mohammed Shami is missing from India’s lineup in South Africa: Dinesh Karthik. Due to an ankle injury, Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the ongoing two-match Test series.

In the ongoing Boxing Day Test against South Africa at the SuperSport Park in Centurion, Dinesh Karthik remarked that the Indian squad is missing injured Mohammed Shami.

The 33-year-old bowler finished the 2023 ODI World Cup with the most wickets. He was rested for the white-ball matches against Australia and South Africa. Shami was supposed to play a crucial part in the two-match Test series against the Proteas, but he was ruled out due to an ankle injury.

“Mohammed Shami has grown in stature as a bowler and as a pack leader.” He is an effective lieutenant for Jasprit Bumrah. On a pitch like this, you can visualize the upright seam. He would have grabbed a few wickets, I guarantee it. “The Indian team really misses him,” Karthik stated on Cricbuzz.

For India, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj each took two wickets. Prasidh Krishna made his Test debut, conceding 61 runs in 15 overs while taking one wicket. Shardul Thakur, a seam-bowling all-rounder, went wicketless, giving 57 runs in 12 overs. Karthik believed that Prasidh and Shardul did not back Bumrah and Siraj well on Day 2.

“Shardul Thakur and Prasidh Krishna combined for nearly 118 runs in 27 overs.” Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj, on the other hand, only managed 111 runs in 31 overs. Siraj was a little pricey, especially in the final stint, but they also bowled some wonderful deliveries. Every time they were on, you had the sensation they were going to get you.

Dean Elgar finished the second day with 140 not out from 211 deliveries. He smashed 23 fours in his innings and will be crucial for the home team in the first session on Day 3. South Africa’s lead, which is currently 11 runs, might expand significantly if the southpaw remains at the crease.
