Paceman Shami out of UAE match with knee strain


Paceman Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of Saturday’s World Cup match against United Arab Emirates in Perth with a knee injury, organisers said on Friday.

“Mohammed Shami got (a) mild left knee problem and had ultrasound guided injection yesterday,” a statement on the ICC’s World Cup website said.

“For his long-term management perspective he won’t be available for Saturday’s match against UAE.”

The 24-year-old had taken a total of six wickets from India’s opening wins over Pakistan and South Africa. REUTERS
