Shami played a key role in India’s historic Test series win in Australia in 2018-19, where he finished with 16 wickets across four Test matches. With Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah injured, Mohammed Shami will have additional responsibilities on his shoulder.
India will kickstart their tour of Australia with six white-ball internationals, which is set to start with the three-match One-day International series in Sydney from November 27.
