Indian pacer Mohammed Shami made headlines on Day 5 of the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand with his spell of fast bowling. However, the ace seamer also became the talk of the town for sporting a towel over his jersey on the field.
According to reports, the pacer was wearing the towel due to the chilly weather in Southampton, to keep his lower back warm. Pictures and videos of the act soon circulated on social media, with netizens making memes and jokes on it.
