Mohammed Shami Likes Post Talking About India Player Who Faked Injury In World Cup To Play In IPL. Image Viral


Mohammed Shami on Wednesday revealed that he is recovering after undergoing an operation on his Achilles tendon, adding that his stitches were recently removed. On Tuesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that Shami will not play in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 with Gujarat Titans (GT). In an official statement, the BCCI said that Shami is being monitored by the BCCI medical team after undergoing surgery on his Achilles tendon in February.

The fast bowler, who underwent successful heel surgery to repair his Achilles tendon last month, took to X (formerly Twitter) to give an update on his “recovery progress”.

“Hello everyone! I wanted to give an update on my recovery progress. It's been 15 days since my surgery and I recently had my stitches removed. I'm grateful for the progress I've made and Looking forward to the next step in my healing journey,” he writes in X.

In response to the post, a user wrote that while he was going through pain in the World Cup, a particular player faked his injury during the World Cup to play in the IPL.

The post read, “Shami bhai gave his 100 per cent even when he was in pain during the World Cup, then there is this donkey Kalu who faked an injury to keep himself available for the IPL.” The screenshot below shows a list of posts by Shami on XLikes, including the said post.

Shami did not play in the home T20 series against Australia after the ICC World Cup last year and was also dropped from the entire South Africa tour. He also missed the Afghanistan series. Following this, he also missed the five-match Test series against England.

The 33-year-old player did not take part in the recently concluded five-match Test series against England. He last represented India in the ODI World Cup final against Australia in November. The senior fast bowler was the leading wicket-taker in the tournament and dismissed 24 batsmen in just 7 matches.

Shami contributed significantly to GT's success in both seasons. The 33-year-old bowler took 20 wickets in 2022 and followed it up with an even stronger performance in IPL 2023, taking 28 wickets at an average of 18.64. Shami was particularly devastating with the new ball.
