Mohammed Shami who is a part of Team India’s squad for the World Test Championship and England series is confident of having a great Indian summer in England. Virat Kohli-led side defeated England at home in four-match Test series to book themselves a date with Kane Williamson’s New Zealand in the World Test Championship final, set to take place in England later this month. After the final, England will host India for a five-match Test series.
Ahead of the England summer Mohammed Shami has predicted that it will be a fruitful one for the India team who have played some extraordinary cricket in the recent past.
We Have Played Some Extraordinary Cricket in Recent Times: Mohammed Shami
“We have played some extraordinary cricket in recent times as an unit and naturally, the confidence level is high on the eve of our departure for England. If we can reproduce some of the form which we did over last six months, I am confident it will be a great summer for us,” Shami told Gulf News.
Mohammed Shami made a comeback into the Indian Test squad after having a broken arm in the first Test in Australia which ruled him out of the rest of the series. But the pacer returned to the play in the IPL and looked in his usual shape.
“The experience over the years have helped me to learn to look after my body. I know how much training is needed, how to keep myself hydrated etc – all these factors must have also helped,” he said on being asked about his return to fitness.
The India pacer further said that he wishes to pass on his knowledge to young rising fast bowlers before he bows out of cricket.
“It comes automatically as after being in international cricket for so many years, I would like to share any input that the youngsters may want. I am not going to play forever, so it will be great if I can pass on something to the youngsters,” Shami signed off.
