Losing their father is never easy for anyone. They are always present in one’s heart and their presence is dearly missed in every front of life. India’s pace sensation Mohammed Shami had lost his father Tousif Ali four years ago on January 27, 2017. However, the pacer still misses the presence of his father and hopes of seeing him one more time.

On his father’s 4th death anniversary, Shami took to his official Twitter handle to pay homage. As a tribute to his late father, Shami penned an emotional note that left many teary-eyed. The right-arm seamer also shared a heartwarming picture featuring him and his father while the latter was admitted to a hospital.

“4th years complete today . I wish I could see you one more time , come walking through the door , but I know that is impossible , I know you can feel my tears and you don’t won’t me to cry , I pray that god will give me strength as you given always and somehow get me through as i struggle with heartache when I lost you proud to be your son and miss you so much love you dad!,” Shami said in his lengthy post on the Facebook-owned platform.

Mohammed Shami ruled out of the first two Tests against England

Mohammed Shami has been away from the cricket field for over a month now. After featuring in the three-match One Day International series against Australia, Shami was included in the playing XI of the first Test of the four-match Border Gavaskar Trophy at Adelaide Oval alongside pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh Yadav.

However, while batting against Pat Cummins, Shami suffered a fracture on his bowling arm and was advised bed rest for about 6 weeks. This resulted in Shami getting ruled out of the prestigious Test series and Mohammed Siraj replacing the right-arm quick in the second game as India went on to script history in Australia by winning the Test series by 2-1.

Meanwhile, due to his injury Mohammed Shami has also been excluded from the first two Test matches of the four-match Test series against England, starting from February 5 at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
