The veteran Indian pacer, Mohammed Shami credited hard work after his heroics for India in the first warm-up of the T20 World Cup against Australia. Shami scalped three wickets in four balls to help India register a six-run win in the final-over drama. Defending 11 runs in the last over on Monday, captain Rohit Sharma surprised everyone by bringing Shami, who was named number 13 for the match. On the third ball of the over, Pat Cummins played a shot over long-on but Virat Kohli took a stunning one-handed catch.

Thanking the fans for the support, Mohammed Shami on support wrote:  “Thank you everyone for your love and support. The hard work is paying off. Just feels great to be back on the field, playing for Team India. Onwards and upwards”.

 

Mohammed Shami, who had not played a T20I since the 2021 T20 World Cup in November and was added to India’s 2022 campaign after Japrit Bumrah was ruled out, continued to cause trouble for Australia as he took three wickets in four balls.

During the chase, Australia got off to a flying start with captain Aaron Finch and Mitchell Marsh hammering the Indian bowlers. India rattled the middle order of the world champions to make a comeback. Finch (79), anchoring the innings, failed to take Australia home as Harshal Patel dismissed him when the hosts needed 16 runs off the final two overs.
