President Murmu presented the Arjuna Awards to 26 exceptional athletes, including the accomplished Indian speedster, during the event that celebrated sporting excellence in New Delhi on January 9. The contribution of Mohammed Shami to the ODI World Cup 2023 was particularly extraordinary. Initially sidelined for the first four matches, his fate took a turn when Hardik Pandya suffered an unfortunate ankle injury against Bangladesh on October 19.
