India pacer Mohammed Shami stated India’s fast bowling unit has not only forced the rivals to take notice of its firepower, but also pushed them to think about the wickets to offer to the team from the sub-continent.
Shami is one of the best fast bowlers in the world who has got an impressive record in Whites.
Along with Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini and Umesh Yadav, Shami forms a lethal fast bowling unit that has led to improved performances in overseas conditions. Ahead of the World Test Championship finale, Shami spoke about the dominance of the Indian pacers.
“The best thing about our bowling unit is that we have 4-5 pacers who can constantly bowl at over 140-145 clicks. You can find 1-2, but to find 4-5 is tough, and we have that. We force the opposition to think what wickets they want to offer us. I don’t think we’ve had bowlers who could bowl at this pace earlier, we never had 4-5 of them coming in units. Earlier, teams used to plan easily against us but today they are forced to think otherwise,” Shami told India News.
Shami further spoke about the bonding of seniors and juniors in the squad.
“As seniors, our duty is to tell the youngsters to ask us things freely. Overall, the atmosphere and camaraderie between the juniors and seniors are amazing. The thing is, all of us will have to leave the game someday but it is important to think about what we are leaving behind, for the team and the youngsters. It’s important to make your country, captain and the board proud,” Shami added.
