Arjuna Award 2023: Mohammed Shami Nominated for the Award

Mohammed Shami has been nominated for the Arjuna Award for his stellar performance during the ICC World Cup 2023. After initially being overlooked for this honour, the Board of Control for Cricket in India made an official request to the Sports Ministry that Shami be included after initially being overlooked.

Shami’s Impactful World Cup Run

Shami was India’s top wicket-taker at this World Cup, taking 24 wickets from seven matches despite sitting out the initial four games due to being benched.

Shami used his opportunity well and boasted an average of 5.26, making an impression and helping India advance to the finals, where they narrowly fell short against Australia.

BCCI Special Request

Sources claim that the BCCI is actively lobbying to include Shami in India’s Arjuna Awards nominations due to his exceptional skills and crucial role in India’s cricketing successes.

Their Sports Ministry request highlights Shami’s significant contribution, assuring his place among India’s second-highest sporting honour.

Feats that Break Records

Shami took 24 wickets, including an unprecedented bowling performance of 7/57, which set a new record in ODIs and World Cup tournaments for Indian bowlers.

His standout 5- 18 performance against Sri Lanka was integral to India’s victory, further cementing his status as an influential cricketing figure.

Future Plans for Shami

Cricket fans eagerly await Shami’s participation in India’s two-match test series against South Africa. The 33-year-old speedster will play a vital role in the two matches scheduled on December 26 at Centurion and January 3 at Cape Town.

The Decision-Making Process Of The Committee

The Ministry has convened a 12-member panel led by retired Supreme Court Judge AM Khanwilkar to select this year’s awards in sports, such as Major Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna Award and Arjuna Awards.

Members include former international athletes like hockey player Dhanraj Pillay and cricketer Anjum Chopra to ensure an impartial evaluation process for nominees.
