Mohammed Shami is an Indian cricketer who also plays for Bengal in the domestic circuit. He is a right-arm fast-medium swing and seam bowler. Shami is a deceptively potent fast bowler, who can bowl with consistency between 140 km/h and 150 km/h. He is an expert in reverse swing. In his ODI debut against Pakistan in 2013, he bowled four maiden overs. Shami dismissed five West Indian batsmen on his test debut in the same year. He was the leading Indian wicket-taker in the 2015 ODI World Cup. His success can be accredited to his consistent pace and accuracy. He is skilled in swinging both new and old balls. Shami promoted quickly to international cricket because of his remarkable bowling in the Ranji Trophy in 2013. He took 28 wickets at a strike rate of 21.35 in his five Ranji Trophy matches and delivered a 10-wicket haul twice.
Shami’s father Tousif Ali was a farmer, who also played cricket in his younger days. Ali recognized Shami's bowling skills and took him to Badruddin Siddique, a renowned cricket coach of Moradabad in 2005. Shami is full of energy and is famous for his vehement practice sessions full of stamina. With an abundance of overseas series in the near future, Shami is all set to drive himself into the league of great fast bowlers.
