India playing the first semifinal clash and it’s all going good for Men In Blue. New Zealand batting first after winning the toss are 130 for 2 in 34 overs.
After India announced the playing XI for the game against New Zealand at Old Trafford, many have been questioning the decision to leave out Mohammed Shami, who has been the leading wicket-taker for the side so far.
Like @SGanguly99, I admit I am surprised by the dropping of Shami. He takes wickets upfront and if you do, the death overs aren’t as critical. India batting very deep with Jadeja at 8 but it is a big call to leave out Kuldeep against a team he has done well.

Totally agree with @Sdoull – I’m stunned there’s no Shami for India.

What a bad decision to pick an expensive bowler like Chahal over Shami who has taken so many wickets #NZvIND

Ary chacha … Gain some statz knowledge..shami had played 4 and got 14 .
If #shami would have Played all matches he would have been the highest wicket taker!

Lot of people asking why Bhuvi ahead of Shami… #ViratKohli didn’t pick only a fast bowler. Bhuvi offers a better all-round package.
