Player Bio

In 2013, Mohammed Shami donned the blue jersey for India and slowly started to make noteworthy contributions to the Indian team. With his ability to reverse, he became an indispensable asset to the limited-overs side. 

Shami had announced his arrival on the big stage with a sizzling Test debut in 2013 on his home ground Eden Gardens, dismantling the Darren Sammy-led West Indies when all eyes were on Ravichandran Ashwin and Jadeja to create a bulk of the damage to the visitors’ line up. His reverse swings were unplayable as Windies batsmen found their techniques inept to tackle his deliveries. 

With his ability to reverse, he became an indispensable asset to the limited-overs side, becoming the second-fastest Indian to 50 ODI wickets. World Cup 2015 proved the best tournament for him as he took 17 wickets becoming one of the highest wicket-takers in the tournament despite playing the world cup with a knee injury.

Mohammed Shami played the complete World Cup 2015 with pain and swelling in his left knee. After almost six months of the surgery, Shami started playing cricket again and was a part of the 2015 Vijay Hazare and Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy. He missed the Asia Cup, South Africa’s tour of India, and got injured in the midway of England and New Zealand’s tour of India yet again.

He was selected for India’s tour of South Africa and took 15 wickets in the 3-match series. In June 2018, he agonised again due to fitness.

Once again he came back to the Indian side and this time with some supreme fitness. He was part of the 10 out of 11 Test matches that India played in their respective games against England, West Indies, and Australia. 

In the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, he played as a second-choice bowler after the swing king Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Kumar got injured in a group game against Pakistan and Shami was brought in for the remainder of group games. In a short stint of four matches in the World Cup, Shami rattled 14 wickets including a fifer and a hat-trick against Afghanistan and saved India from a shocking loss against a tenth-ranked ICC team.

Mohammed Shami entered IPL when he was signed by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for the 2011 season of the league. However, Shami played a handful of matches in that season. He was retained by KKR in the next two seasons and was a part of the team that won the title in 2012.

In 2014, Delhi Capitals (formerly known as Delhi Daredevils) bought him for a whopping amount of INR 4.25 crore. He was retained by the franchise in the 2015 edition of the IPL but did not play a single match before becoming a regular in the side. He bowled at a consistent pace of 140 kmph and above.  Before the 2019 edition of the coveted tournament, Kings XI Punjab roped him in for INR 4.40 crore

Shami has not been successful in the IPL except for the last two seasons when he scalped 19 and 20 wickets, respectively, for the Punjab team. He was retained by the team for the 2021 season with the expectation that he will provide early wickets as well as dry up the runs in death overs where his skills of Bowling Yorkers consistently will be tested.
