Indian star Mohammed Shami cast his vote in Amroha in the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections on Friday. After voting, Shami urged citizens to exercise their right to vote and “elect the government of their choice.” “I just want to say that every citizen has the right to vote and elect the government of their choice… It is a matter of pride for me that Prime Minister Narendra Modi took my name during his speech (at Amroha) and praised me and my game,” Shami told the media. Voting took place in eight parliamentary constituencies of Uttar Pradesh – Amroha, Meerut, Baghpat, Ghaziabad, Gautam Budh Nagar, Aligarh, Mathura and Bulandshahr during the second phase of Lok Sabha polls.

Voting began at 7 am on Friday in 88 constituencies across 13 states and Union Territories for the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections.

Earlier in February, Prime Minister Modi wished a speedy recovery to Shami, who underwent successful Achilles tendon surgery.

Shami is currently undergoing rehabilitation following an Achilles tendon injury. On April 19, Shami provided his fans with an injury update and said he was looking forward to making his comeback.

On Instagram, Shami wrote in her reel caption: “Injuries don't define you, your return will… Can't wait to be back with my team! #mdshami #recoveryjourney #shami #mdshami11”

Shami is not playing in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season, where he was supposed to play for Gujarat Titans (GT) and also missed the five-match Test series against England at home in January- March of this year due to injury. .

The 33-year-old last represented India in the ODI World Cup final against Australia in November. The senior pacer finished as the highest wicket-taker of the tournament and took 24 wickets in just seven matches.

Shami played through pain in this tournament, but he did not let his pain affect his performance. He then missed the tour of South Africa after the tournament and the three-match T20I series against Afghanistan in January.
