IPL 2021: Mohammed Shami On His Way Back, Set To Represent Punjab Kings In IPL
Speedster Mohammed Shami is on his way back to action and set to represent Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) starting next month.
Shami has been bowling for the past week or so and has been working at regaining match fitness at the National Cricket Academy, it has been learned. "He should be returning to action. He has been bowling for a week or so," said a source in the know of things.
The right-arm pace bowler has been out of action since December 19, when he fractured his forearm on the third day of the first Test in Australia in Adelaide. Shami was hit by a Pat Cummins delivery and was forced to return home.
Although the fracture was expected to heal within four to six weeks, and before the England series, he was not considered match-fit for the England four-Test series that India won 3-1.
