Virat Kohli: Mohammed Shami among the world’s best three seamers


Victorious Indian captain Virat Kohli on Thursday attributed the Test team’s fine results overseas in recent years to his pace attack and rated Mohammed Shami among the best three seamers in the world currently.

The formidable India pace unit destroyed a listless South Africa to fashion an emphatic 113-run win in the first Test here, setting the team on course for a maiden series victory in the country. Kohli lavished rich praise on his colleagues after the team’s big win. “Just the way these guys bowl together, it’s just a hallmark of our team getting a result from that position, not just in this game but also in the last two-three years,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Speaking about Shami, he said, “He is absolutely world-class talent. For me, he’s in the best three seamers in the world at the moment. His strong wrist, his seam position and his ability to hit a length consistently. Very, very happy for him to get 200 wickets.”


Recalling his team’s fantastic victory at Wanderers in the final Test of the 2018 series, Kohli said that result instilled plenty of self belief. “It’s a top start for us. We have to understand one day was washed out—shows how well we played. We got so much confidence out of Johannesburg last time. It’s a ground we love playing at.”
