southamptonIndia’s fast bowler Mohammed Shami performed brilliantly in the World Test Championship final against New Zealand on Tuesday. Shami took four wickets and New Zealand’s first innings was all out for 249 runs. India’s first innings ended for 217 runs. In this way, the Kiwi team took a lead of 32 runs on the basis of first innings.
However, New Zealand extended their innings on the fifth day with a score of 101/2. New Zealand batsmen were seen struggling in front of Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma. Shami gave India their first breakthrough of the day by getting Ross Taylor (11) caught by Shubman Gill. The same Indian team also made a strong comeback. Ishant Sharma soon got Henry Nicholls (7) caught out at the slips by Rohit Sharma.
After this, Shami defeated BJ Watling (1) playing his last Test at his own pace. Shami clean bowled Watling by bowling the best ball. Shami kept the tip of the ball on short length, which remained straight after falling on the pitch and took Watling’s off-stump. This wicket brought back the memories of the fans of 2016. This is because the way Shami celebrated Watling in 2016 after clear bowling, he celebrated in the same way today. Even after five years of Shami, the style of celebrating did not change.

Many believed that Mohammed Shami would prove to be an important bowler for India. The right-arm fast bowler proved it very well. Shami took four wickets for 76 runs in 26 overs including 8 maidens. During this his economy was 2.92. Shami got good support from experienced fast bowler Ishant Sharma. Ishant took three wickets for 48 runs including 9 maidens in 25 overs. His economy was much better at 1.92.
Shami, however, missed out on taking the fifth wicket. Despite fatigue, he bowled a couple of overs so that he could take his fifth wicket, but it did not happen. Ravindra Jadeja ended the Kiwi innings by bowling Tim Southee. It will be interesting to see whether the match results in the WTC Finals or whether it will end up with a joint winner for the first time.
