Mohammed Shami only bowled the final over of the T20 World Cup warm-up match against Australia. Shami successfully defended 10 runs in the over and also picked up 3 wickets.
Rohit, speaking after the match, Rohit explained why he only gave one over to Shami, that too the final over.
“He (Shami) is coming back after a long time, so we wanted to give him an over. Wanted to give him a challenge and let him bowl the final over, and you saw what he did,” he said.
In the absence of Bumrah, Shami will have a big responsibility on his shoulders of spearheading India’s pace attack. Considering the way he bowled against Australia in the warm-up game, the confidence of the team management in him would’ve certainly witnessed a boost.
