In the lead-up to the highly anticipated ICC World Cup 2023 final between India and Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has heaped praise on the resurgent right-handed pacer, Mohammed Shami.

Despite not being initially included in the World Cup squad, Shami’s relentless determination and hard work in the nets caught the attention of team captain Rohit Sharma. Sharma commended the 33-year-old’s unwavering commitment to the team’s success, particularly highlighting his role in mentoring fellow pacer Mohammed Siraj.

“It was tough for Mohammed Shami not to be part of the World Cup initially. He was there to help Mohammed Siraj, and it shows his quality. We told him why he wasn’t part of it, and he worked in the nets. The results are showing and say a lot about him,” Rohit Sharma told reporters.

Shami’s inclusion in the squad came as a replacement for the injured Hardik Pandya, proving to be a significant turning point in India’s World Cup campaign. The right-arm pacer has been in sensational form, emerging as the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with an impressive tally of 23 wickets in just six innings.

In the semi-final clash against New Zealand, Shami showcased his prowess by claiming seven crucial wickets, underscoring his pivotal role in India’s journey to the final.

Reflecting on his success in the mega event, Shami shared insights into his strategic approach, stating, “I always look at what the situation is, how the pitch and the ball are behaving and if the ball is swinging or not. If the ball is not swinging, I try and bowl stump to stump while trying to land it in a zone where the ball can catch an edge of the batters when they are driving.”
