“Such A Lovely Ball”, Mohammed Shami Reveals One Delivery He Would Love To Have From Jasprit Bumrah

Mohammed Shami has been a consistent performer for Team India in recent years. Although he has done well in limited-overs cricket, it is his displays in Tests that have been really crucial for the country. In the last few years, he has also forged a strong bowling partnership with Jasprit Bumrah. Recently, Shami sat down for an interview with the Indian Express and spoke about Bumrah, the current Indian pace unit and his own career. In this article, we take a look as Mohammed Shami reveals one delivery he would love to have from Jasprit Bumrah.

Mohammed Shami reveals one delivery he would love to have from Jasprit Bumrah

One of the interesting things that Shami revealed was what he felt when he saw Bumrah bowl for the first time. He said that it was during IPL and Shami divulged that he felt strange because Bumrah could generate so much power with that action.

Regarding one delivery he would love to have from Bumrah, he said, “The one thing I would love to have from him is his yorker. Such a lovely ball. It’s fun to bowl together.”

Talking about Team India’s bowling attack, the West Bengal cricketer told, “With the kind of Test match bowling we have now, I don’t think we ever had such a period in our cricketing history. If you look at our graph for the last five years, I feel it is the highest. I enjoy bowling with Jassi, Umesh, Ishant and all of them. We know each other’s abilities.”

Further highlighting the philosophy of the current unit, Shami mentioned, “The best quality of this bowling unit is that whenever someone is down, we lift each other up and give confidence. These are the things one remembers in life. We walk together through thick and thin.”

A solid bowling partnership for Team India

Shami and Bumrah have done wonders for India in the recent past. That said, the duo will have some challenges in the coming months. The immediate task, though, will be to ensure that India goes on to win as many Tests as possible to qualify for the WTC final.
