Mohammed Shami doubtful for the Mumbai Test due to injury issues

India are facing fitness concerns for their leading pace bowler Mohammed Shami who had complained of soreness in his knee after the third Test against England at Mohali.

Shami had undergone knee surgery after the last World Cup and was out of cricket for 15 months.

Kohli said at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday,



We are going to take a call in the evening in terms of how he (Mohammed Shami) is feeling with his knee. After the Mohali Test he felt soreness in his knee, so we need to take a corrective call all on that. We will have to take a collective decision because he has had a history with knee problems. You don’t want to push a player so much so that you lose him for the rest of the season. We still have some time to decide. 




If Shami misses the game, it will give an opportunity for swing bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar to return to the playing eleven for the 4th Test, considering that Ishant Sharma has also been released from the squad.

Kohli, however, gave the thumbs up to opener KL Rahul, who missed the previous Test because of a shoulder injury picked up in the second Test at Vishakapatnam
