Mohammad Shami was on fire in Gujarat Titans' opening fixture oF IPL 2022 against Lucknow Super Giants.

KL Rahul was dismissed for a golden duck by Mohammed Shami in the fourth match of IPL 2022. Opening the batting for Lucknow Super Giants, the captain had to answer to Shami’s brilliance and was caught by wicketkeeper Matthew Wade without troubling the scorers.

He is the second skipper to be dismissed on the first ball of the match in the cash-rich league.

In the second edition of the tournament in 2009, Kevin Pietersen got rid of Kolkata Knight Rider’s skipper Brendon McCullum for a golden duck. Playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore, captain Pietersen decided to bowl the first over, and McCullum’s catch went straight into the hands of Virat Kohli.

Coming back to the ongoing match, Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya won the toss and decided to bowl first. Shami took 3 wickets in the first spell of three overs and conceded just 10 runs.
