Mohammed Shami: Indian Pacers greatly appreciate each other’s success
Team India’s fast bowlers, over the past few years, have quickly risen to the top to earn a reputation as one of the deadliest rhythm attacks in the world. This bowling unit comprising such figures as Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma breathed new life into the bowling department and from there the country continued to produce more quality speedsters.
“Our fast bowling unit is a great package where everyone works very hard while understanding the other counterparts very well. The bond and the fun you saw that day is because we value each other’s success very much. We are happy when the other is happy, ”Shami said.
The 30-year-old also said the special camaraderie brings unity to the pitch as the ultimate goal, for anyone in the XI, is to do well for the country. Therefore, when the chips are down, they lift their spirits in unison.
“Even if someone is shot, we make sure to cheer them up. We try to make them forget all the stress and we try to lighten the mood. I think all ties should be like this because playing for your country is indeed a matter of pride. but this unit that we have been building since 2013-14, you will find that the guys really appreciate each other’s success, ”added Shami.
Earlier in the previous decade, responsibility fell on the trio of Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav before the arrival of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. In Australia, however, Mohammed Siraj led the Indian rhythm attack which included Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur and newbie T Natarajan in the absence of regular Test pacemakers who were injured and excluded at various stages of the test series. .
Mohammed Shami attributes an incredible healthy atmosphere
However, over the past 3 years, everything has been the performance of the trio in Tests. The trio have pocketed 149 wickets in the 11 games they have played together. Mohammed Shami attributes the success to the atmosphere and harmony within the team.
He said: “We have created such a healthy atmosphere over the past 5-6 years that you will hardly believe it.”
Every senior pro in this unit has missed a few games during the Australian due to injury. However, they are now fit and will return to duty at the England Tour. India will first face New Zealand in the World Testing Championship final (in June), followed by a five-game test series against the hosts starting in July.
Ishant Sharma has already won 36 wickets in 11 tests for India in the world test championship with an excellent average of 17.36. Mohammed Shami is one of the best representatives of reverse bowling and has passed 36 wickets in 10 tests for India in the World Test Championship with an average of 19.77. Jasprit Bumrah has passed 34 wickets in 9 tests in the test world championship cycle.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has not played any form of competitive red ball cricket for the past three years, a time when India’s fast bowling stocks have exploded. So that seems to be the end of his Testing career. He took 63 scalps in 21 tests averaging 26.1.
