His demise has now forced the pacer to leave his rehab with the Indian T20 team and rush to Amroha to attend his father’s funeral.

Shami, at the time of his father’s demise, was with the Indian team, training with the team that is scheduled for January 29.

 

 

Shami, who is undergoing rehab, is recuperating from a knee injury that he sustained after India’s third Test match.



He was initially with his father after he suffered his first heart attack on January 5, but decided to join the Indian team for their first T20I match in Kanpur on January 26.

According to Shami’s brother Mohammed Asif, their father “wasn’t well for a long time” and they had to shift to Delhi for better treatment.

Shami too joined his family once last month, but despite family members pleading him to stay, he decided to go back to Bangalore and join the Indian team.

 

According to Aasif, Shami at that time said,

“India is as much of a father to him and he couldn’t deny that duty either.”

Asif had also added that,

“Shami was very emotional but decided to go back to training, knowing that his recovery ahead of the home series against Australia is important for the national team’s plan there. Abbu (Father) really respected his profession, and would’ve asked him to do the same.’
