Shami faced immense personal difficulty, but he chose to rise above it and perform for his country

Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami showcased unparalleled dedication and skill in the ICC World Cup 2023, particularly in the final match against Australia at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. Shami’s exceptional performance not only contributed to India’s impressive run in the tournament but also served as a testament to his unwavering commitment to the sport.

Shami’s achievement is even more remarkable because his mother, Anjum Ara, was hospitalized just hours before the crucial final match. IBC 24 reported that Anjum Ara was admitted on November 19, 2023, after feeling feverish since the morning.

Despite the challenges, Anjum’s health has improved, and reports indicate that she is now out of danger and doing well. It remains unclear whether Shami was aware of his mother’s situation, given that he was with the Indian cricket team in Ahmedabad at the time.

Anjum Ara, despite her health condition, extended her heartfelt wishes to her son and the team just before the game commenced. As reported by the Press Trust of India, she expressed her hopes for India to win the World Cup and bring joy to the nation.
