India’s fast bowler Mohammed Shami has surprised everyone by bowling tremendously in the first Test. Not only India but also the veteran players of Pakistan are praising his performance. Shami has also completed his 200 Test wickets in the Centurion Test. Shami has left behind Ravichandran Ashwin, Kapil Dev and Ravindra Jadeja to achieve this feat. Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria has praised Shami and said that it is not right to take Shami lightly, not only South Africa but also other teams of the world should not take him lightly.
Kaneria said on his YouTube channel that both line and length have been seen very well in his bowling and this is the reason why South Africa had to return to the pavilion early in the first innings of the first Test. Shami was the only bowler who fell heavily on South Africa. I will speak a little on his bowling because everyone was watching as I was watching and we all have seen what happened. Apart from Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj and Shardul Thakur also contributed immensely in this Test match.
Talking about the Centurion Test, Team India scored 327 runs in the first innings. At the same time, the first innings of South Africa’s team was reduced to 197 runs. Shami took 5 wickets for India. Till the latest news was written, India scored 79/3 in the second innings on the fourth day of the Test match. India now has a lead of 209 runs.
