The prettiest sight for a fast bowler, watching the stumps cartwheel or getting knocked out of the ground, has become more of a next-door neighbour for Mohammed Shami in his recent international career for India.
He made his first-class debut against Assam in November 2010 where he took three wickets. In 2011, he was picked by Kolkata for the fourth season of the Indian T20 League. Later on, Delhi acquired his services in 2014 and retained him in 2016.
With the ability to swing the new as well as the old ball at brisk pace, Shami gained a lot of respect from the Aussies during their ODI tour to India in 2013, admitting that Shami's deliveries hit their bats pretty hard. He was drafted into the Test squad thereafter, against West Indies and made his debut on his home ground at the Eden Gardens. He shell-shocked the West Indians with his reverse swing, finding the stumps on numerous occasions and attaining the best figures (9/118) by a new-ball debutant for India.
Mohammed Shami was India’s most successful bowler in the 2015 World Cup and played a key role in taking his team to the semis. Soon after the tournament, his career hit a roadblock when he was diagnosed with a knee injury. He missed the limited-overs tour to Australia, Asia Cup and World T20 during that period.
