Mohammed Shami to Miss IPL 2024 Due to Injury


In a significant blow to the Gujarat Titans, star pacer Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 due to a left ankle injury. The news was confirmed by BCCI sources.

Injury and Surgery

Shami, who is currently not part of the ongoing Test series against England, will undergo surgery in the United Kingdom to address the persistent ankle issue. The 33-year-old last represented India in the ODI World Cup final against Australia back in November. Despite playing through pain, Shami’s performance remained commendable during the World Cup campaign, where he contributed significantly with 24 wickets.

Absence of Shami Impacts Gujarat Titans:

Shami’s absence is a significant setback for the Gujarat Titans, who were relying heavily on his pace and experience. He was the team’s leading wicket-taker in their maiden IPL triumph last season, claiming 20 wickets in 16 matches. His absence leaves a major void in the Titans’ bowling attack, and the team management will have to find a suitable replacement at short notice.

National Team Concerns:

While Shami’s IPL absence is a concern, it also raises questions about his availability for the upcoming World Cup later this year. The ankle injury and surgery could potentially impact his fitness and form leading up to the crucial tournament.

NCA’s Rehabilitation Program

The development also raises questions about the National Cricket Academy (NCA)’s injury rehabilitation management program for Shami. With his IPL participation now unlikely, the focus shifts to his recovery timeline. Shami’s target could be the marquee away series against Australia, but the NCA’s conservative approach has faced criticism in this case.

As cricket enthusiasts await further updates, Shami’s absence will undoubtedly impact the Gujarat Titans’ bowling lineup. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in action soon.
