One of India’s most improved pacers in the last couple of years, Mohammed Shami has heaped praise on the current Indian bowling unit and termed it as the best ever in the country’s history. Rahul Dravid, recently said that the current Indian fast bowling unit is the best that the country has ever had.
The Indian fast bowling unit, especially in Test cricket, has gone on to rule the world. The last 2-3 years have seen a rise in quality in the Indian fast bowlers, and they have become the most lethal pace attack in the world. A glimpse of it was evident during India’s tour of Australia in 2018 when the India National Cricket Team won its maiden Test series in Australia as the Indian bowlers rattled through the Aussie batting line up.
Now, Mohammed Shami has said that the current Indian fast bowling unit is the best-ever in the country’s history and all the bowlers have improved a lot in recent times.
Mohammed Shami Reckons India Has The Best Fast Bowling Unit In Its History
“Even the world acknowledges that India never produced five genuine fast bowlers in a package at one go. Not in Indian cricket’s history. We have bowlers in the reserves who can bowl 145 km,” Shami said.
“This is the best attack as no one has any jealousy and everyone enjoys each other’s success. It feels like a family,” Mohammed Shami said.
I Have No Objection In Bowling With The Smi-New Ball: Mohammed Shami
The pacer also revealed how all the bowlers sometimes surround skipper Virat Kohli to decide who gets to bowl with the new ball.
“We surround Kohli and ask him to make the decision. But he normally says, ‘don’t get me involved in all this; you decide among yourselves, I don’t have an issue.’ That is the kind of fun we have in our team meetings. I let the other two start. I have no objection to bowling with a semi-new ball,” Shami said.
He also says Ishant Sharma, who is the senior-most player in the Test line-up, is a kind human being.
“Look at Ishant Sharma. He is set to play 100 Tests. It’s not a mean achievement but if you speak to him you will know what kind of a human being he is. He is so down to earth,” Mohammed Shami added.
