One of India’s cunning fast bowlers of recent times, Shami said that the past two weeks were extremely tough for him. Now, he has also got Grade B contract from BCCI. Talking about the same, he said, “I had to go through a lot in the past 10-15 days. The charge of match-fixing specifically brought me under tremendous pressure. I will channelize my anger in a positive way on the cricket field. This decision has given me courage and motivation to perform on the field. I will make my bowling do all the talking now in the coming days. This is a big win for me and I am hopeful that in the coming days I will also be cleared of the remaining charges.”
