Head coach Rahul Dravid has indicated that Mohammad Shami could replace the injured Jasprit Bumrah in the India squad for the T20 World Cup if the former is able to regain full fitness weeks after contracting Covid-19.


Shami, who was among the reserve pacers for the ICC event alongside Deepak Chahar, was forced to miss the six home games against Australia and South Africa after catching the virus.



The BCCI is yet to name Bumrah’s replacement and after the conclusion of the series against the Proteas, Dravid hinted that Shami is the team’s preferred choice though Chahar and Mohammad Siraj are also in the reckoning.

“In terms of replacement, we are looking at [options], we have time till October 15 (ICC deadline). Shami is someone who is in the standbys but he could not play unfortunately in these two series,” said the head coach on Tuesday night. “It would have been ideal from that perspective. We will have to get reports.”
