India are the only unbeaten team in the ongoing edition of the Asia Cup. They have registered wins against Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka in the six-team tournament thus far and have made it to the final. The Indian team management has decided to keep ace speedster Mohammed Shami on the bench as they have opted to go in with only two frontline seamers, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj.
“We have been following Bumrah’s progress from the NCA, and we are very happy with the report that we have got. Now, we have four quality bowlers, and it is always great to have those options. The problem of plenty is always good,” Mhambrey was quoted as saying by India Today ahead of India’s final Super Four match against Bangladesh on Friday.
“It’s not very easy to drop someone like Shami. The experience that he has and the performance that he has done for the country is phenomenal. It’s never easy to have that kind of a conversation (dropping a player),” he continued.
“But we are clear in the way we have gone about the conversation with the players and they have shown confidence in us. Players know any decision that we take and they know that it is for the benefit of the team,” Mhambrey concluded.
