The team unit is one of the best: Shami

We will look to continue the momentum and perform well. It’s a team effort and we work in a unit. We are like a family and enjoy each other’s success,” Shami said. “There’s a good understanding among us. We know each other’s strengths,” Shami said. On coach Shastri, he said: “I’ve already said the support staff and the team unit is one of the best.” Shami along with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were rested for the limited overs series. “I try to give my 100 per cent and work on my strength which is swing and bowling reverse.
