India’s fast bowler Mohammed Shami achieved a new feat in his approximately seven of ODI career. He finished with 42 wickets from 21 ODI innings leaving behind Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson with 38 and 35 wickets to their respective accounts.
India’s legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar on Sunday stated that the fast bowler often reminds him of West Indies greatest and finest pacemen Malcolm Marshall.
When probed, Gavaskar named Shami as his favourite. “He reminds me of Malcolm Marshall, who still wakes me up from deep sleep,” Gavaskar said while commentating for Star Sports during the third and final ODI of the three-match series between India and West Indies at Cuttack.
Gavaskar also credited the World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev for restructuring and revolutionizing India’s fast bowling.
At Cuttack, India had decided to bowl after winning the toss. West Indies with a great team effort put up a staggering target of 316. Nicholas Pooran’s 89 and Kieron Pollard’s 74 was a big contribution to built a mammoth of a score.
