Mohammed Shami’s left ankle injury keeps him out of the IPL in 2024

<p>New Delhi: Due to a left ankle injury, experienced Indian fast Mohammed Shami is probably going to miss the 2018 Indian Premier League season. Surgery will be necessary for Shami’s injury, and it will happen in the UK.</p>

<p>Since India’s defeat to Australia in the 2023 ODI World Cup final, Shami has not played. The 33-year-old hitter was included in the Indian Test team for the match against South Africa, but his availability depended on how fit he was. The fast bowler was subsequently ruled out of the two Tests by the BCCI in a press statement, which also said that Shami had not been cleared by the medical team.</p>
<p>“Shami was instructed to start light running after three weeks and take it from there when he visited London in the last week of January for special ankle injections.</p>
<p>However, the injection was ineffective, leaving surgery as the sole remaining alternative. He is about to go to the UK for surgery. IPL looks to be set in stone, a top BCCI insider told PTI under anonymity.</p>
<p>Shami, who took 24 wickets at the World Cup and was a major contributor to India’s incredible victory, played with discomfort because he struggled with his landing, but he didn’t let it stop him from performing.</p>
<p>Shami, who had received India’s second-highest athletic award, the Arjuna Award, expressed thanks for the distinction. This esteemed prize was his reward for his outstanding performance in the 2023 ODI World Cup, when he finished as the top wicket-taker with 24 wickets in seven games.</p>
<p>But right now, India and England are playing a five-match Test match series, with Rohit Sharma and company ahead 2-1. In addition to Shami, Virat Kohli has withdrawn from this series due to personal reasons.</p>
<p>The National Cricket Academy’s (NCA) injury recovery management regimen for Shami is called into doubt by this development.</p>
<p>The speed bowling specialist’s chances of recovering before India’s home Test matches against Bangladesh and New Zealand in October and November are now very slim.</p>
<p>The highly anticipated away series versus Australia may be his objective.</p>
