A source familiar with this told PTI on condition of confidentiality: “Shami’s wrist is fine now. He will play slowly at the net for the next few days. He was advised to play about 18 balls with 50 to 60 percent effort per day.
In such a situation, Indian fans now hope Shami will return soon.

Shami was injured in Adelaide
Shami (Mohammed Shami) received a short ball from Pat Cummins in India’s second leg in Adelaide on December 19. This caused a hairline fracture on his wrist which forced him to retire. He was then knocked out of the test series against Australia and had to return home for a rehab program.
