"Mohammed Shami is safe and sound. He was returning to Delhi from Dehradun after training when there was a minor collision. He was taken to the hospital and got a few stitches on his head. He is perfectly fine and advised rest for a day. He is at a private place after being discharged yesterday only. He will return to Delhi tomorrow if health permits. There is no such injury which can hamper his participation in IPL," Abhimanyu's father Easwaran RP told PTI.
Shami has recently been awarded his BCCI contract in a Grade B category and will play for Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2018.
