Mohammed Shami made the ball do the talking in his short career so far and has by far been India’s best fast bowling exponent in the recent years. Starting off as a limited overs bowler Shami bowled his heart out since his debut against Pakistan in early 2013. He made further in the roads against Australia at home where he picked 7 wicket sin 3 outings and away in New Zealand picking 11 wickets in the five games he played.By then Shami became the ‘go to’ man for MS Dhoni in the death in limited-overs cricket, but his performance in that situation has however been a mixed bag. Shami subsequently made his test debut against West Indies at home and then became an integral part of the Indian bowling line over a tough season of away tours in South Africa, New Zealand, England and Australia. Shami, however, fared reasonably well over the strenuous season as he picked 47 wickets in the 12 tests he played. A huge tournament such as the World Cup looked to have come to touch too early for Shami, as he led the Indian bowling attack in their title defense in Australia. Shami, however, responded astoundingly well by picking 17 wicket sin just 7 games that India played before exiting the tournament in the Semi Final Stage. Shami was, however, unlucky to pick up a knee injury and subsequently underwent a surgery missing the opportunity to build on his stellar career so far with a season at home. Shami most recently has been declared fit and been picked by Bengal to play in the Vijay Hazare trophy.
