Shami was initially named in the standby list for the T20 World Cup squad but a back injury ruled Bumrah out of the mega event and it opened doors for the veteran pacer.
Shami has replaced injured Bumrah in the 15-member Indian cricket squad for the T20 WC 2022, starting October 16 in Australia. Shami was initially named in the standby list for the T20 WC squad but stress related injury on his back ruled Bumrah out of the mega event and that opened the doors for the veteran pacer. Siraj and Shardul Thakur have been named as backups and will travel to AUS shortly.
 Deepak Chahar was also in race for the spot left vacant by Bumrah but his struggle with injury of late kept him out of contention. India start their T20 World Cup campaign on October 23 with a match against arch-rivals PAK.
