Shamsi had a great last 1 year and his huge contribution in South Africa’s gripping 3-2 T20I series win over the all-powerful West Indies at their den was awesome. In 5 games he gave away only 80 runs at a great economy. Picked 9 wickets to get the player of the series award. Surely his West Indies success had a massive bearing in franchises going after him to fill up spots vacated by withdrawal of international players.

Shamsi has earlier played for RCB in IPL in a few games. However this time he is expected to be a certainty in the 1st XI of Rajasthan Royals. Following their difficult times with their bowling resources.
