Indian star pacer Mohammad Shami has done it again. Time and again the Indian pacer has risen up to the occasion when Team India needs him the most and he has proven his worth to everyone.
The second test between India and Sri Lanka, i.e, the Pink ball test which is currently being played at the M. Chinnaswami Stadium, saw team India giving a poor performance in their first innings. The hosts scored just 252 runs in the first innings which is nothing compared to the mammoth total that they have scored in the first innings.
The pitch of Chinnaswami stadium is tricky and it troubled all the Indian batters. However, just when netizens were trying to feel like Sri Lanka had a real chance to do something miraculous in the second match, India’s bowlers, especially Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami turned the tables.
Within just 15 overs, the two Indian bowlers have picked up 4 wickets (2 each) and have completely dismantled the Sri Lankan batting lineup.
However, it is Mohammad Shami who impressed everyone the most, especially with his dismissal of Dimuth Karunaratne. His delivery was next to perfect and the swing that Shami provided to the delivery completely fooled Karunaratne into playing the wrong shot and he was bowled without knowing what happened.
The commentators and Team India players all praised Mohammad Shami for his incredible delivery. He went on to pick up the important wicket of Dhananjaya de Silva as well. As of now, India are completely dominating the game and Sri Lanka needs a big partnership to come out of this bad position.
