What’s the logic behind selecting Shami?

Has played only 12 t20is, taken 11 wickets at an economy of almost 10. Compare that with Khaleel who has taken 13 wickets in 14 matches at an economy of less than 9 and also provides a left arm seaming option

According to self proclaimed experts in ICF he bowls 137 to 145kph all day in tests so he must be included in t20 squad

Not advocating anything, I’m just putting Shami’s t20 career in perspective. If he was picked for “experience” doesn’t make any sense whatsoever lmao

 

No. He's picked because of last 2 IPL performance in same conditions. Only one who takes new ball wickets with some consistency.

He actually takes most wickets at death. In all UAE matches, he has 14 wickets at death. Only Rabada has more. He is economical in powerplay but doesn't take many wickets. D. Chahar, Arshadeep, and to a lesser extent Bumrah, were bowlers to take wickets in powerplay this season, even these two were moderately successful.

Bumrah doesn't even open bowling anymore regularly.His wickets are middle overs.

 

D Chahar is great in certain conditions but UAE doesnt suit him. Hes much better in India.

 

yeah batsmen played him out but mostly looked better with new ball

Chetan Sharma gave the reason why they selected Shami and others.

 

He said, " We selected our 3 main strike bowlers ".

 

It seems that the overall career of the pacers,

across formats, was the criterion for selection, based on my interpretation of this statement.

 

Others can obviously have different interprètations of this statement. 

Problem is not differentiating between formats and skills set required for them.

Cricket is thriving in India thanks to our fielding. 

 

 

Only test cricket is thriving in India in the last 6 years, thanks to our fantastic test match bowling. 

 

Haven't won a T20 World Cup in the last 14 years, although 5 of them took place in this period.

 

No ICC LOI trophies in the last 8 years, although 5 of them took place in this period.

 

With only 8 good teams in T20Is and 6 good teams in ODIs ... and the amount of resources that we have in cricket these days ... we should be absolutely dominating white ball cricket too.

Selectors don't distinguish well between formats. Additionally, IPL isn't the complete yardstick, as visible in SL tour. 

 

I'm also not convinced with Siraj/Thakur in this format, their international T20 ERs are aweful. Bhuvi is lazy & mostly bowls low energy cutters & slower balls. Jaddu never was a T20 cricketer. In short, I'm expecting a repeat of 2007, although odi & not T20 WC performance.
