Shami recounts his fun experiences with Kohli
Mohammed Shami is back in the Indian team fold after recovering from his arm fracture suffered in Australia tour six months back. He is expected to play a stellar role in India’s long tour of England.
In a recent interview, Shami has shared some interesting thoughts on Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
Shami praised Rohit’s captaincy stating the whenever the bowler goes for any advice, Rohit offers positive vibes. Gives all the freedom to the bowler to bowl as he wants even if the opposition batsmen are playing well.
He feels that the confidence Rohit instils in his bowlers helps them to perform.
Shami is not known for too many outrageous celebrations whenever he gets a wicket. However here he adds that there is a player within the team who celebrates even more than the bowlers.
Shami disclosed the player is none other than the Indian captain Virat Kohli. Shami recounts his fun experiences with Kohli.
” Fast bowlers are very aggressive, both old and new. But the one player who could probably emulate their aggression is our own captain! Sometimes, when a picture of Virat’s celebration of a wicket goes viral on social media. I funnily ask him, Was it my wicket or yours?, He celebrates more than the bowlers! Sometimes he points out that you don’t look too happy with the wicket. So I simply tell him, You did all the celebration for me!’.” Shami said .
Shami stated that it’s important to have some fun on the field and Virat ensures that with his actions. Apart from which he leads the team very well.
