Mohammad Shami To Miss The Entire IPL Season
Delhi Daredevils suffered a major setback on Wednesday after Indian pacer Mohammad Shami was ruled out of the 2015 Indian Premier League due to a knee injury.
Shami had missed the first three games of the tournament due to a dodgy knee injury that has been troubling him since the league stages of the World Cup.
Confirming the development, an official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India revealed that the 25-year-old pacer’s condition was very critical.
"Shami is out of the tournament,” said the official.
“He might have to go for operation.
“He should not have gone for IPL. He will take at least two months for recovery."
With 17 wickets from eight matches, Shami was the fourth highest wicket-taker in the recently concluded World Cup.
Sparks of the injury was observed during the tournament when Shami was rested for India’s league match against the United Arab Emirates in Perth.
Shami was among the players retained by Daredevils as they went for a major revamp of their squad this season.
Meanwhile, a five-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday in Pune halted a 11-match losing streak for the Delhi Daredevils.
