Mohammed Shami is on the verge of winning the IPL trophy as Gujarat Titans stormed into the final by defeating Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 1. Shami’s contribution has been instrumental in the Titans’ remarkable maiden season so far.

Shami congratulated all his team members and associates related to GT after booking the berth in the final. The pacer praised the teamwork and gave credit to his team members for staying together even in several crunch situations as several players like Rahul Tewatia, David Miller, and Shubman Gill have come up to the party whenever the team has needed in tough situations. 

He tweeted on his official Twitter handle: Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is a success.”

Here is the Tweet:

‘He has controlled his emotion on the field’ – Mohammed Shami on Hardik Pandya

Shami also added that Hardik Pandya has become a fantastic captain and has controlled his emotion on the field.  “After he (Hardik) became captain, he has become more normal, his reactions have been tempered (mellowed). I have advised him to control his emotions on the field because the entire world watches cricket. It is very important as a leader to be sensible and understand situations and he has performed that role to perfection,” Shami had said recently.

“He (Hardik Pandya) has kept the team together. I have witnessed a lot of changes in him as a captain in comparison to a player. Every captain has a different temperament. Mahi (Dhoni) bhai was quiet, Virat was aggressive, Rohit leads according to match situations, so understanding Hardik’s mindset is not rocket science,” he added.

Meanwhile, the pacer has had a great season so far with the ball, as he has grabbed 19 wickets in 15 matches at an average of 23.94 and a strike rate of 18 while his best figure came against the LSG, 3/25. He will look to add more to his wicket tally in the finals as Gujarat will eye to grab the IPL trophy in their first attempt.
