Mohammed Shami

Mohammed Shami first burst into prominence when he was India's leading fast bowler in the 2015 World Cup in Australia. His Test debut in November 2013, against the touring West Indies, was a memorable one. He reverse-swung the old ball appreciably, and at good pace, in the two-match series to take 11 wickets at 16.54. In the summer that followed in England, Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, recorded the second-highest 10th wicket partnership for India in Tests, when they put on

111 runs against England in Nottingham. He has also enjoyed early success in the Twenty20 format, picking up 14 wickets in his first eight domestic Twenty20 games, and was signed by Kolkata Knight Riders for the 2011 IPL season. He got his first game for them in 2013, and was acquired by Delhi Daredevils in 2014, who retained him in 2016 despite his missing the entire 2015 season with injury.
