New Delhi, Jul 9 (UNI) Cricket fans slammed the India team management on Tuesday on social media for not including right-arm pacer Mohammed Shami in the playing XI for the World Cup semi-final clash against New Zealand at the Old Trafford in Manchester.
Shami, who is replaced by Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the India’s second-best wicket-taker in the tournament after Jasprit Bumrah, looked like an obvious choice in the playing XI, especially after taking 14 wickets in the past four matches.
During India's league encounter against Afghanistan, Shami was given the responsibility to bowl the last over and Shami delivered by taking a hat-trick.
