The Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami is expected to return in the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League. After being injured during the Australian tour, the speedster hasn't played cricket in the last three months. The 30-year-old was struck by a delivery from speedster Pat Cummins during the Day-Night Adelaide Test and suffered an arm injury.
He was forced to return home after that, and he could not play in the home series against England. Since December 19, 2020, the right-armer has been out of cricket, and he has been working hard at the National Cricket Academy to reacquire his fitness.
He must endure a seven-day quarantine period before stepping onto the field because he has not been a member of the bio-secure bubble. Anil Kumble, the head coach of Punjab Kings, shared his delight at Shami's return to the team.
Kumble also addressed how the Punjab franchise handled itself during the auction, which took place in Chennai in February. Punjab will play Rajasthan Royals in their first game of the IPL 2021 on April 12 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
