- Mohammed Shami did wonders in the World Test Championship final
- June 22 and Mohammed Shami has now become a special ‘kismet connection’
- History was created in ICC World Cup even two years ago
Team India’s 30-year-old pacer Mohammed Shami has once again shown the magic of his balls on foreign soil. Shami once again proved his mettle on the fifth day (22 June) of the World Test Championship final (WTC Final 2021) against New Zealand. He made a very special record by taking 4 wickets in the first innings of New Zealand. At the same time, the more interesting aspect was that for Shami, June 22 and this ground has now become a very special fate.
Mohammed Shami bowled brilliantly in the first innings of the World Test Championship final against New Zealand on Tuesday. This Indian pacer took 4 wickets while conceding 76 runs. His most important contribution was in making New Zealand all out for 249 runs. With this, Shami now became the bowler to record the best figures for India in the final of any ICC Championship. He broke the record of Mohinder Amarnath (3/12, World Cup 1983).
It was amazing even two years ago, the ground is also the same
This is the same date on which Mohammed Shami created history two years ago by taking a hat-trick during the World Cup 2019. Even more interesting thing is that he also did that feat at the same ‘The Ages Bowl’ ground in Southampton. Shami took a hat-trick against Afghanistan on 22 June 2019 at the same ground. He also took 4 wickets in that match. Shami made a special record on that day as well, becoming the second player in World Cup history after Chetan Sharma to take a hat-trick for India.
