The fifteenth edition of the Indian Premier League started just a week ago. Since then, the cricketers from their respective teams have been giving their best on the field to make the league a bit more competitive.
Meanwhile, Indian cricketer, Mohammed Shami is one of the players who brought the best out of himself in the ongoing IPL season. The right-arm fast bowler represents Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League.
He chipped in with a brilliant bowling performance against Lucknow Super Giants during the fourth game of this season’s Indian Premier League. The paceman absolutely nailed it with wicket-taking deliveries as he got rid of KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock and Manish Pandey.
He gave his team a fabulous start by dismissing KL Rahul on the very first ball of the innings. Rahul got a thick edge off his willow as Matthew Wade took a catch in his safe pair of gloves. Later on, Shami dismissed De Kock and Manish Pandey by shattering their stumps.
The ultimate secret to his bowling was then he bowled at Test-match line and length and rightly so, he reaped rewards for his performances. Gujarat Titans beat LSG by 5 wickets and kick-started their campaign with a win.
Mohammed Shami was named the Man of the Match for his magnificent performance. While fans on Twitter praised the pacer for his bowling spell, surprisingly, American adult star, Kendra Lust took to Twitter and praised Shami.
She wrote, “Absolutely wonderful performance by @mdshami11 ??”. Her tweet went viral on social media.
Shami, at the post-match presentation, said, “I was warmed up well. It was important to get a good start in the first match, I looked to bowl a Test-match line and length here. When the ball comes out of your hand like that … (smiles). I have worked very hard on this seam position.
People say it is god-gifted, but that’s not the case. I try to come round the wicket to a leftie and make that angle because that’s the most uncomfortable thing for them. I just look to do that. Hardik asked me if I wanted the fourth over on the trot, but I told him to hold me back.”
