PM Narendra Modi Wishes ‘Speedy Recovery’ To Mohammed Shami After India Pacer Undergoes Surgery


Prime Minister Narendra Modi left a special message for Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami who underwent a surgery on his Achilles Tendon. Notably, the right-arm speedster took to social media platform X on Monday to provide an update about his health in which he shared a picture post his successful surgery. However, one comment on it that has captured all the attention is that of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

PM Modi wished the 33-year-old seamer a speedy recovery through a heartfelt message. “Wishing you a speedy recovery and good health, @MdShami11! I’m confident you’ll overcome this injury with the courage that is so integral to you,” Modi wrote in response to Shami’s message which read: “Just had a successful heel operation on my achilles tendon! Recovery is going to take some time, but looking forward to getting back on my feet.”

Mohammed Shami Ruled Out Of IPL 2024

Meanwhile, a report carried by news agency PTI has confirmed that Shami has been ruled out of IPL 2024 where he was set to ply his trade for Gujarat Titans (GT). With Shami having underwent a surgery now and the IPL under a month away, seems like that report could well be true with Gujarat Titans (GT) set to announcement a replacement for him soon. After emerging as the ICC ODI World Cup 2023’s leading wicket-taker, Shami missed the home T20I series against Australia and did not play any part in the South Africa tour.

He even was out of the Afghanistan series and is not participating in the ongoing England series. His last apperanace on the cricket field came in the ODI World Cup 2023 final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in November last year where he finished with 24 scalps in 7 matches.
