Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the Australia ODIs and T20Is after the seamer injured his left hamstring. The injury would keep the seamer out of action for four-six weeks.

According to a BCCI release,”The BCCI medical team confirms that Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of India’s tour of Australia due to injury. He sustained a Grade II injury to his left hamstring, which will restrict him from playing active cricket for about 4 to 6 weeks.”

The selection panel has named Bhuvneshwar Kumar as a replacement for the injured Bengal speedster.
