Sanjay Manjrekar has heaped massive praise on South Africa bowler Tabraiz Shamsi. The South Africa spinner was superb in the second ODI against India.

Shamsi took two wickets and conceded just 57 runs. Despite getting thrashed by Rishabh Pant at one stage, he continued to flight the deliveries and ended up taking Pant’s wicket.

“After today’s performance, I have become an admirer of Tabraiz Shamsi… You don’t judge a player only by his success or failure and we saw when Pant went after him… I loved his body language, he kept his spirit, was willing to come back, and it was brilliant by Bavuma to give him another spell against Rishabh Pant when he was in 80s. That was a bit of a gamble and I think he went back to Shamsi because he saw that his bowler had not gone to pieces when Pant had gone after him. So really impressed by the temperament of Tabraiz Shamsi along with the skills that he has.”
