  • Mohammed Shami is on standby in case Jasprit Bumrah is ruled out.
  • However, before taking a call on Shami, the selectors want to have a clear idea about Bumrah’s injury.
  • Bumrah who is nursing a back injury is expected to return to the NCA this week for an injury assessment.
  • Ravindra Jadeja is unlikely to make it to the T20 World Cup with a knee injury.
  • Harshal Patel is likely to return for Australia & South Africa series. He is currently at the NCA, undergoing rehab for rib injury.
  • Squads for T20 World Cup, Australia & South Africa T20 series besides ODI squad will be announced together – Expected DATE of Announcement is 16th SEPTEMBER
