He still remembers the day ten months before when India crashed out of the World Cup at Sydney Cricket Ground last year, losing to Australia. He was one of the members of the Indian squad on that day. And once again, before the forthcoming tour to Australia, starting from January 12 for the five one-day International matches and T-Twenty matches, Mohammed Shami is all set to be in a revenge taking mood by delivering his best in the series.

The rookie first bowler from Bengal, after coming back to the mainstream following an eight-month lay-off due to injury, has been training alone at Mohun Bagan last couple of days, the club which he represents in the CAB 1st division league. And speaking on him aim Shami said on Wednesday, “I want to win both One-day and T-Twenty series in Australia and then I want to win the T-Twenty World Cup in India also. Winning these trophies can compensate my pain for the defeat in the World Cup last year.”

 

The 25-year old fast bowler had to undergo rehab programme for around eight months following a knee operation after the World Cup and he informed saying, “During my rehab programme at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore Dhoni met me and gave a lot of inspiration. At the same time, I called up team director Ravi Shastri who offered me a lot of important advises. So, with great mental confidence I have come back and have been doing extensive training.” Shami revealed he has been working hard mainly to improve his Yorker delivery which he feels might be effective on Australian soil.
