Team India’s seasoned pacer, Mohammed Shami, is currently striking fear into the hearts of opposition batters in the 2023 World Cup. His exceptional performance has made him the leading wicket-taker for India with 16 dismissals in just four matches at an economy rate of 4.30.
However, Shami is not just a bowling superstar, he has got some serious hitting skills as well. Team India realized that and promoted him up to number eight in the batting lineup. After India’s massive 243-run win against South Africa, when asked about it, Shami had a savage comeback.
Here’s what Mohammad Shami said:
“Bhai Lord’s pe 50 bana k aa raha hu [Translates to: Brother, I have a 50 at Lord’s]
Shami had a stellar Sunday against South Africa, taking two wickets in a mere four overs. With this, he now boasts 16 wickets in just four appearances in the ongoing World Cup, featuring two incredible five-wicket hauls. He’s also now India’s top wicket-taker in World Cup history.
