India pacer Mohammed Shami tests negative for Covid-19 | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Rhythm of India Mohammad Chami Wednesday tested negative for Covid-19more than 10 days after being infected with the virus.
The 32-year-old posted his negative report on his Instagram account, hours after BCCI named veteran pacemaker Umesh Yadav as his replacement for the three-game T20I series against South Africa, starting Wednesday at Thiruvananthapuram.
“Negative,” Shami wrote along with a photo of her Covid test report.


The Indian senior pacer had tested positive for the virus on September 17.
He was subsequently dropped from the recently concluded three-match series against Australia.
Earlier today, the pacemaker was ruled out of the T20s against South Africa, with BCCI saying he “has not yet fully recovered from Covid-19”.
Shami, who played no cricket after the England series in July, had been brought back into the T20 mix when he was picked for matches against Australia and South Africa.
He was named replacement for the T20 World Cup in Australia next month.
