Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has tested positive for COVID-19

Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has tested positive for COVID-19 and has been ruled out of the three Twenty20 internationals at home against Australia, the country’s cricket board (BCCI) said on Sunday. After the three-match series that begins in Mohali on Tuesday, India will play three more matches at home to South Africa as they continue their preparations for the T20 World Cup in Australia, which begins in less than a month.

Shami, who was not included in India’s Asia Cup squad recently, last played in the shortest format for the national team in November during their previous T20 World Cup campaign in the United Arab Emirates. “The All India Senior Selection Committee has named Umesh Yadav as his replacement,” the BCCI said in a statement. Fast bowler Yadav, 34, has featured in seven T20 Internationals for India, the last of which was in February 2019.
