When bowling in teams, it's important to see how the other bowler is doing: Shami praises Siraj
In the absence of an injured Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami said he likes bowling in tandem with Mohammed Siraj.
In the absence of an injured Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami said he likes bowling in tandem with Mohammed Siraj. Senior India pacer Mohammad Shami praised his young bowling companion Mohammed Siraj, saying he has performed admirably. Jasprit Bumrah has been out of competitive cricket for about 6 months due to a back injury, for which he recently received surgery.
In his absence, Siraj has been heading the charge with the new ball for India in ODIs and Tests alongside Shami. Siraj's rise in recent years has been unparalleled, as he is presently the ICC's number one bowler. In the absence of an injured Bumrah, Shami said he likes bowling in tandem with Siraj. "It's been a long time since Bumrah hasn't played.
It is unfortunate that he is not present. However, we have an excellent general bowling unit for both white and red balls. "We help each other a lot," Shami said at the post-match news conference. He praised Siraj and said he has confidence, which is essential because bowling in partnerships is crucial, and he is happy to lead the way as the team's senior bowler.
"Siraj has been playing for a while, and he is confident. It is essential to see how well the other bowler is doing when bowling in partnerships. We attempt to bowl as tightly as we can, keeping the ball in specific patches. "You have to lead the way as a senior bowler," he added. The pair split three wickets in the first ODI against Australia at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.
With two major events, the ICC World Test Championship final and the World Cup, Shami believes it is critical for players to handle their workload wisely. "There is a lot of time remaining for the WTC final and World Cup. You can't plan that far ahead as a player. You never know what will transpire the next day." "But you have to be smart as far as workload is concerned, you have to focus on your strengths. You are aware of your burden in international cricket. "It's better to take it one series at a time or match by match," he says.
