Bumrah to replace injured Shami in T20 Indian team against Australia

mohammad shamiMumbai: Jasprit Bumrah will replace injured Mohammad Shami in the T20 team for the three Twenty20 matches against Australia, starting from January 26, 2016. The decision was taken by the All-India Senior Selection Committee on Monday.

“It is a wonderful feeling. I was expecting this since I was on standby,” Bumrah told BCCI.TV.” But still, it is a very nice feeling. I cannot really describe it.”

“IPL has helped me tremendously. Every year I learn something new at the IPL. It has shaped me as a cricketer,” said the Gujarat pacer.

Bumrah will leave for Australia on January 22 along with other T20I team members, including Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra, Suresh Raina and Hardik Pandya.
