cricket world cup 2023 Even though India lost in the final, Mohammed Shami No one can forget his contribution. After this World Cup, Mohammed Shami has become the most popular player of the Indian cricket team. Despite sitting on the bench in the first four matches, he won the Golden Ball with 24 wickets. In the bowling line which had stars like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami shined the most. He also took seven wickets in the Cricket World Cup semi-finals. This was the first time for any player of the Indian cricket team in ODI.

Shami is fond of fishing

Mohammed Shami, who grew up in Uttar Pradesh, was very humble from the beginning. Before making a place in the Indian cricket team, he played national level cricket for Bengal. Mohammed Shami recently revealed about his hobbies and his growing up years. He said on PUMA’s YouTube channel, ‘I like travelling, fishing. I love driving. I like driving bike and car. But after playing for India, I have stopped riding bikes. What if I get injured? Sometimes when I am in the village, I ride my bike on the highways.

Got scolded by father for driving tractor

Recalling his old days, Shami said that I have come from the land itself. I have driven a tractor on the path through the fields. Just drove trucks. One of my school friends had a truck in his house. He asked me to drive. I was young at that time and was driving on a field. I also drove my tractor into the pond. Then my father scolded me. In the same interview, he revealed that during the selection trials for Uttar Pradesh, his brother had talked to the chief selector about why he was not being selected, but his answer surprised him.

selector’s dominance

The selector told his brother that if you can move my chair then the boy will be selected, it is very good, otherwise sorry. My brother replied that forget to remove the chair. I can reverse it, I have that much power. But I don’t want that, if my brother has the potential then he should be selected. He was told that people with potential are of no use here. My brother tore the form and said that after today we will not join UP cricket. That was my last day in UP cricket.

Khel Shami from Bengal

Shami further told that then I went to Calcutta at the age of 14-15. I talked to my coach. I became determined that I had to play. I was getting a lot of experience. After three-four years, I went to Arun Lal Academy. This was a cement pitch. There was less space for run-up. I was surprised. But still I bowled. Then he asked me to have lunch. I was not surprised because they gave a break and gave me chickpea curry. I thought I would take rice and dal.

Shami faced many difficulties

Shami reminded that I got experience and got an offer from a club, but they were not paying. The struggle continued and then one day a club official gave me Rs 25,000. Let us tell you that Shami has had to go through many problems. He married Hasin Jahan, a cheer leader, out of love. But after a few years, she filed a case against Shami for physical abuse and dowry harassment. But despite facing all the problems, Shami is still an integral part of Team India.
