Better Fast Bowlers in Indian T20 Cricket than Shami- Ricky Ponting on Disclusion of Mohammed Shami in Asia Cup 2022


Share post:

Former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting talked about Mohammed Shami and why he wasn’t included in India’s squad for Asia Cup 2022. Ponting presently is the coach of the Australian Team. The BCCI has announced a squad for Asia Cup where Mohammed Shami was replaced by Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, and Hardik Pandya in the 15-member crew.

Two times World Cup-winning captain talked about the better choice BCCI made in the latest episode of the ICC Review. He said, “He’s been a very, very good bowler for India for a long time now. If you look at his strengths, his Test cricket is probably where he thrives the most. I think there are better fast bowlers in Indian T20 cricket than Shami and they’ve only named three. So if there’s potentially four named in the squad he might be the fourth man in.”

Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel will be absent from the Cup due to injury recovery. Many imagined Shami to be part of the absence of these two, but that didn’t happen. Ponting added, “I would think they’ll probably only have the four quicks coming to Australia. They’ll still want to bring a lot of spins here even though the wickets are probably not that conducive.”

Ponting picked India as his winning champion in the matches at Sharjah and Dubai. “It’s always hard to go past India in any tournament, not just an Asia Cup, but I think every time we talk about the T20 World Cup, which is coming up, I think that India will be right in the thick of it there. Their depth is definitely better than the other teams, and I think India will win the Asia Cup.”
