ICC World Cup: Mohammad Shami’s Exclusion from Team India Leaves Twitterati Baffled

The exclusion of this world cup’s only hat-trick taking bowler Shami was quite puzzling for Indian cricket team fans, as the team management opted to try Bhuvneshwar Kumar in his place.  

Shami, who has managed to get an impressive tally of 14 wickets in 4 matches with his career-best figures of 69/5 in his maiden world cup match, looked like an obvious choice for the playing XI.

He has been touted by many cricket experts as the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. Shami has also become the second Indian bowler after Chetan Sharma to manage a World Cup hat-trick, in the recent match with Afghanistan.

Baffled Twitterati and cricket pundits alike, expressed their displeasure over Shami’s exclusion.

​Meanwhile, New Zealand took on India at the iconic Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester, England on Tuesday. They were 211/5 in 46.1 overs when rain interrupted the match.
