Kaif had played a few club matches before representing Bengal's senior side. He was also named in Bengal's squad for the Syed Mushtaq Trophy which was played in January this year.
On the other hand, Shami is currently recovering from a hand injury that he suffered in the first Test against Australia in Adelaide in December 2020. The pacer missed the ongoing series against England and he has also been rested for the T20I series against the Three Lions.
India had defeated England by ten wickets in the third Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium to gain a 2-1 lead in the four-match series.
