Currently, the Indian fast bowling unit is the biggest strength of the team. In last one year, the Indian fast bowling unit has hugely impressed both in the home and away and at present, it is one of the best pace bowling units in world cricket.

Indian cricket team is currently preparing for the Australia tour where they will play the three-match T20I series, four-match Test series, and three-match ODI series respectively from November 21.

The 28-year-old Indian pacer Mohammed Shami said, “As a fast bowling unit, we did well in England. We are preparing for the Australia series and watching a lot of videos. The plan is to focus on the series as much as possible as the opponents are very strong. We will work on getting the line and length right. We will always try to do our best. Winning or losing also depends on luck. We will give our 100 per cent.”

After the T20I series, India will play the four-match Test series on the Australia tour, starting on December 6. According to some reports, Cricket Australia (CA) might reconsider the bans of Steven Smith and David Warner soon.

Talking about this, Shami said, “If those two don’t play, they will obviously be weakened. But in the end, you have to stick to your plan and work on your strengths.”

The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup is just more than six months to go. Though Shami wants to play in that tournament, he is focusing only on the next upcoming series.

The right-arm pacer added, “It depends on who is fit and who is not during that time. My performance will be evaluated and I will expect to get a chance if I do well. If I don’t, I have to accept that too. That’s too far away. We always think about the next series and that is more important for us.”
