Mohammad Shami is one of the best three pacers : Virat Kohli
CRICDOT DESK : India pacer Mohammad Shami fires the ball in the Centurion Test. After taking 5 wickets in the first innings, he took 3 wickets in the second innings. His bowling cannon broke the backbone of the Proteas. India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with a big win of 113 runs. They became the first team in Asia to win a Test match at this venue. At the end of the match, India captain Virat Kohli praised Shamir.
“Honestly, Mohammad Shami is a world-class talent, a world-class bowler,” he said. In my opinion, Mohammad Shami is one of the top three fast bowlers in the world right now. His strong wrist, seam position and consistent bowling at the same length are truly remarkable. I am very, very happy that Mohammad Shami got 200 wickets. We felt the effect of his bowling throughout the match. The way the bowlers have bowled shows how we can win in difficult situations.
Besides Shamir, the other two pacers Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj also fired. At the end of the match, Kohli praised not only the bowlers but also the batsmen. But the way Mayank and Rahul started, they certainly deserve praise. We knew we could win if we set a target of 300-320. I also knew that bowlers could do the rest. ‘
The second Test of the series will start on January 3 in Johannesburg. This is the last time India have won a tour of South Africa. Virat Kohli is happy to start the series with a win. “The tour started off perfectly,” he said, aiming to secure the series by winning the next match. One day I won even after being ruined in the rain. This shows how much skill our team has. This time I am always looking forward to playing in Johannesburg. ‘
