Shami credits pacers’ success to sheer toil
The credit for India’s formidable pace bowling attack should go to every playing member, who have put in all the hard yards in the last 6-7 years, feels Mohammed Shami, who claimed a fifer on Day Three against South Africa here on Tuesday.
Shami, 31, bowled brilliantly and took a five-wicket haul (5-44), helping India bundle out South Africa on a low total. It was his 6th five-wicket haul in Test cricket.
“Indian pace bowling is a formidable one because each and every member has worked hard and achieved it all with their sheer hard work. They have created their own little niche for themselves and yes they are the ones who have put in an immense amount of hard work in the last 6-7 years. They are here on their own,” said Shami.
“Yes, credit goes to support staff. They support your skill, but it’s not fair that you take any particular name. What you should see is what kind of effort that these boys have put in and I give credit to boys who have put in the effort,” he added. Shami’s fifer also helped him achieve a personal milestone of 200 wickets.
