Shami is not Bumrah’s perfect replacement: Suresh Raina
Regarding Mohammed Shami, Suresh Raina said, “I would not call him a perfect replacement, because you cannot replace Jasprit Bumrah or Ravindra Jadeja. He has played consistently for India and he has done well, but you had the best option, you have picked him. Shami has done well, he is in good form.
‘Have to play fearlessly’
Suresh Raina further said that ‘BCCI has done really well by sending the team to Australia 15 days before the tournament. The grounds are big, overall I think Team India’s preparation has been good. We have to play fearless cricket and show good intentions.”
