Currently, enjoying a break after India’s 2023 Cricket World Cup campaign, veteran India speedster Mohammed Shami once again made headlines as he rescued a road accident victim in Nainital. He shared a video on Instagram, in which he could be seen helping the accident victim, whose car went off the road as well.

Captioning the video, Shami wrote, β€œHe’s so lucky god gave him 2nd life. His car fell down from the hill road near Nainital just in front of my car. We took him out very safely.”

Meanwhile, Mohammed Shami had a great World Cup 2023 campaign. Initially, he was even not selected in the playing XI, but after Hardik Pandya’s injury, he came in, removing Shardul Thakur in the fifth game and made his first appearance against New Zealand, where he took 5/54. In the semi-finals, he also took a seven-wicket haul and finished as the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 24 dismissals as well.

Shami, who comes from a simple background, recently said in a recent interview that he has driven motorcycles, cars, tractors, buses, and even trucks as well.

“I like travelling, fishing. I like driving a lot. I like driving bike and cars. But after playing for India, I have stopped driving bikes. What if I get injured? I drive bike on highways, may be sometimes in village when I go to meet my mom,” Mohammed Shami said on PUMA’s YouTube channel. “Zameen se hi aaya hu. Kheto ki jo booghi hoti hai, I have driven tractor, bus, trucks. I have driven bus in truck. One of my school friends had a truck in his house. He told me to drive. I was small then and was driving on a ground. I drove our tractor into the pond too. My father scolded me.”
