The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced a balanced 15-member squad for the upcoming World Cup which would be held in England. The blue shirts would play under the leadership of Virat Kohli who would be assisted by Rohit Sharma.
Fast bowler Mohammad Shami has been retained in the ODI team for the mega event which is a remarkable achievement for the bowler as he was not even part of the side a year ago. Shami is excited to represent India at the World Cup this year as he wants to carry his good bowling for into the event.
“In the last six months, there have been some outstanding changes in my life. I am happy with whatever I have achieved. I lost so much of weight, my body has that flow now and the rhythm, I feel, is similar to when I started. I will try to maintain the same rhythm in the future for the World Cup,” he added.
The pacer would accompany the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah who have done really well for the team as a group in recent times.
