Mohammed Shami; Highest wicket-taker for India in the World Cup 2023

He entered the list of top 10 cricketers…

Mohammed Shami, the Player of the Match for his amazing five-wicket haul.

After his amazing Haul, he said, I firstly thank the almighty for this achievement. Later he added that all the practice in the nets is paying off and they are enjoying bowling as a unit. Adds that all the bowlers are having fun and it becomes easy to bowl when the atmosphere is relaxing around you.

He said, I just focus on hitting the right lengths and maintaining the good rhythm as in a long tournament like this it is hard to find it back if you lose it.

Says that it is all about recovering well, eating well, and keeping your mind free and the results will follow.

He said that support has been fantastic not just here but outside India as well. He hopes that it goes perfectly and he continues to perform for the fans.

Shami has entered the top 10 of the highest wicket-takers in ODI World Cup history so far, which is topped by Glenn McGrath’s 71 scalps.

Among all the National and International cricketers, only two cricketers Mitchell Starc and Trent Boult are above Shami in the list with 56 and 49 wickets.

Shami received his third World Cup five-wicket haul against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on November 2.

Shami is now level with Starc in having the most five-wicket hauls in ODI World Cups.
