The Bengal pacer is one of the best bowlers going around in Test matches. Along with Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami destroyed every batting line-up on their way with ease in their home season and came to be recognized as one of the greatest bowling attacks in the world. As much as Shami’s stocks kept increasing in red-ball cricket, he is as deadly in limited-overs cricket as well.
This was evident from India’s encounter against Afghanistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Putting only 224 on the board, the 29-year old was given the responsibility to defend 16 off the last over. Shami nailed three unplayable deliveries in the last three balls that resulted in a hattrick and a nerve-wracking win for India.
He bowled two yorkers in two balls before bowling one full delivery with a searing pace to finish things for India. The Uttar Pradesh-born pacer must be handed the nod in the trial games leading to the T20 World Cup next year. He has proved that he is a gun bowler even with the white ball in his hand. In the Australian conditions that will likely assist the pace bowlers, Shami would be a tough customer to get away from.
