Shahbaz Ahmed Gets Maiden Call For Zimbabwe ODIs As Replacement Of Sundar, Twitter Reacts

The relatively less-experienced Indian cricket team will be playing 3-match ODI series against Zimbabwe under the leadership of KL Rahul starting from August 18 and there is a little surprising news for the Indian cricket fans – Shahbaz Ahmed has got his maiden team India call as he replaced Washington Sundar in the squad.

Washington Sundar got his shoulder injured while playing for Lancashire in a match against Worcestershire in the Royal London Cup in Old Trafford, Manchester and now he will be rehabilitating in the National Cricket Academy, Bengaluru.

Shahbaz Ahmed plays for West Bengal in domestic cricket and in the IPL 2022, he played pretty well for Royal Challengers Bangalore and there is no denying the fact that his performances have helped him in getting a call from the selectors on August 16. Till now, the 27 years old cricketer has played 29 IPL matches and has scored 279 runs. After getting selected in the Indian squad, he expresses his happiness by saying that every cricketer wants to play for the country and getting a call for the Indian team is just like a dream coming true. He further said that whenever he played for Bengal, he gave everything and his team also believed in him. He adds that he hopes to make team India win matches in Zimbabwe with his batting and bowling too.

Shahbaz Ahmed also thanked the Cricket Association of Bengal, his coaches and teammates for supporting him and helping him in his journey.

Fans also went crazy with this news and this is how they reacted:
